Potential opening day lineup if Lodolo was pitching.

Potential opening day lineup if Lodolo was pitching.

Sub Friedl for Casali and yes (but a different batting order)

Christian Encarnacion-Strand gets the start alongside a bunch of Reds regulars.

An underrated part of his spring is how he develops defensively at first base.

Why do they like CES in the 9th hole?

Why do they like CES in the 9th hole?

1) I don't think it really matters in the spring and 2) I don't mind a young hitter who is playing with the regulars for one of the first times this spring hitting 9th. Takes some pressure off and also gives you some pop at the bottom of the order. Seems like the Reds could have hit the pitcher ninth last year and got similar production out of that spot in the order.

It'll be interesting to see those 4th and 5th SP candidates attack the younger Red hitters-- Steer, Barrero, Benson, and Encarnacion-Strand.

Honeywell, for example, needs to impress Padre brass, so he's likely not just working on stuff-- he's looking to get lots of outs.

At the risk of dividing small samples into even more meaningless sub-groups, that's what I'm focused on this week.

2-0 Pads on a 2 run HR off of Luke Weaver to straight away center by Rivas I think. A really awful throwing (mental) error by CES. Weaver works out of it though.

CES Triple !!!

Wil Myers just took a forehead-high fastball straight up the middle for a base hit. I'm both concerned that he would take a hack at that pitch and impressed he could turn it into something.

Stevenson scored as Fraley beat out the DP at first. 3-2 Reds.

Quick 1-2-3 by Weaver.

Teheran pitching for the Pads. Steer grounds out, Barrero K's, Benson dribbles one in front of home plate and is thrown out.

Weaver still pitching bot 4. Dahl walks. Weaver takes a seat after 44 pitches.

Dahl thrown at stealing second. Came off the bag, otherwise he was probably safe.

OK. I think my guest play by play stint must come to an end. Was fun :laugh: Nice inning by Crawford.

CES.....even his outs are impressive right now. Got jammed and still took it near the warning track in center. Dude has grown man strength thats for sure.

Not a great final line, but Weaver seemed to have a solid outing. You can clearly see the stuff and why he continues to get chances. Seems to be inconsistent hitting his spots though. Not sure if that's just an early spring training issue or why his career numbers dont seem to match his arm talent.

Maybe this means nothing for the regular season, we'll see, but I can't remember the last time I've enjoyed spring training games this much. This team just has a lot of life to it.

Just watching this game, I see a difference at the plate approach of the batters.. more focused.. I hope this carries into the season

I was thinking the same thing this morning. It is refreshing, and will be nice to see these young guys perform and develop.

Agreed. I'm trying to not get overly excited on March 8th, but this looks like a legitimate big league lineup. I'm seeing a lot of quality at bats, even from the young guys. This has the feeling of team that has a hitting philosophy that guys are truly buying into.

Padres 3B Brandon Dixon was in the Todd Frazier deal, played for the Reds briefly in 2018, then went Japan and is now back trying to win a job with the Padres

Iím just shocked the Reds were able to sign Strickland so close to the start of spring training.

Strickland is basura. We knew that. Starting to think Brandon Williamson is a bag of magic beans.
