That's a really interesting lineup the Reds have. Love to see what Marte, Benson, and Encarnacion can do.

Thanks, Alex Young is my pick along with Daniel Duarte as the bullpen sleeper this year.

Ricky Karcher is basically Alexis Diaz, but with a third pitch (that he can't locate).

I like Karcher, but don't see him in Cincy this year. Duarte is a little older (not much) but had some experience last year with a 10 ERA. Young is 29 and didn't fit into some other team's plans. These guys seem to fit the Reds reliever profile more than a young arm from the system.

Seems like it's Spring Training for the Reds radio announcers too... Jeff Brantley referred to the Guardians as the "Indians" multiple times in Saturday's game. Today he referred to the Rangers as the "Indians".

This game feels appropriate for my first chance to listen to a 2023 spring training game. Three innings in, the Reds are getting Philled right in the Castellini.

Chris Welch mentioned base runners are getting their timing off the clock once it gets under 3 seconds.

Hadn’t considered that - but runners now have info that helps them steal bases proficiently. They know when the pitcher is subject to a pitch clock. They know that pitcher can only throw to first (or step off) twice. Should help baserunners.

I think they should have left the pitch clock out of the game, in my eyes they weren't the problem. Nor should they have made the bases bigger (disgusting change IMO). Just requiring batters to get their butts ready in the batter's box within a reasonable amount of time, and getting rid of the infield shift, were enough to create real and positive change. I also think that commercials are too long and too many.

I read today that Legumine is known primarily for his bean ball. He stands a very good chance of making the club if he keeps throwing peas.

Solid first start positions Greene for 'another step forward'


Starting pitcher Hunter Greene doesn't have to think about making the Reds’ rotation, or worry about making the roster in general, as he heads into his second big league season.

Greene used Monday's spring debut vs. the Rangers for exactly what he wanted -- working on pitches.

Greene threw 1 1/3 innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits and one walk and striking out two, during Cincinnati’s 13-2 loss to Texas. As far as the 23-year-old was concerned, the outing went great.

"My body felt good. Executed a lot of great pitches," said Greene, who threw 39 pitches overall. "The slider missed a couple of times but in good spots, so I can work on that. I’m really, really happy with today.”

Among the offseason goals for Greene was to work on his secondary pitches, especially his changeup. During the game, he also used his slider but got it into the dirt against a couple of hitters. He said he wasn't trying to bury it.

"I was trying to get a little more of a different angle. Good misses," he said.

Greene was also twice charged with clock violations that cost him a called ball -- once against Travis Jankowski in the first inning and again leading off the second against Mark Mathias.

“A little bit of an adjustment, but I’m continuing to educate myself on it and continuing to work on it in my bullpens and stuff like that," Greene said of his pacing. "We’re creatures of habit -- being pitchers, baseball players in general. It’s just a lot of reps. It’s continuing to stay with it and we’ll figure it out as we go.”

I was going to record and watch this game later tonight, but this was way too ugly.

0-11 w/ RISP. Ouch!

Rangers missed 14 opportunities (not counting walks or sacrifices) w/ RISP, but unfortunately, they had 21 chances (not counting walks or sacrifices).

Try again tomorrow against the Dodgers, as this one is live on MLB/ESPN...I forgot which.

On a positive note, E-Strand needs to be the Starting 3B, as many suggested last September.

I like our OF if Friedl and Benson both get Starters Innings or the season. Don't see any reason why both of them won't finish with .800+ OPS's while playing good (above average) Defense. They also both have speed on the basepaths, which combined with their Defense should give both of them very positive WARS for the season.

And, the game. I love the attempted stolen base (by those who know what they are doing).

Friedl should lead the NL in Triples, while the REDS could finish Top-3 in Stolen Bases.

They have some intangibles that will help them win many games this season. For it to work, they have to be able to close out leads, though.

Wasn't getting tattooed. He was working on his off speed stuff, said he wasn't worried about results in his interview.
