    Iglesias had a hot start last year as well, and as you said, faded to around his career numbers. But his career numbers are almost identical over to Galvis. He also provided better defense, which is what the Reds need this year. Many here were wanting the Reds to pick him over Galvis, so it isn’t Monday morning quarterbacking.

    A big part of running a baseball team is making choice between players. This is just another example of the Reds making a poor choice.

    Being so thin at shortstop they had no other feasible option when they soured on Galvis as starter.

    These might be things to be unhappy about.
    It was clear all off-season that they were very thin in the middle infield. I chuckled when they identified Farmer as the backup shortstop.
    Huh? Huh-uh. Oh yeah, uh-huh.

    Omg Iglesias. Hes riding the luck ridden Peraza year that people here have fallen in love with before. Its not a repeataple skill set. He has like 3 walks and no homers.

    Hes not the answer and its obvious. Too bad we didnt strike lighting in a bottle. Its all it is.

    I don’t think anyone wants him because of his hot start. People want him because career wise he’s just as productive as Galvis overall, brings a much better glove that the Reds desperately needs, and costs half as much. He may not be the “answer” but imo, he clearly was a better choice than Galvis.

    On a side note, I’d also rather have him than Farmer or originally JVM or Colon as the backup to Galvis. Having him and Galvis would mean Garcia wouldn’t have been rushed.

    I’d take Iglesias over Galvis too, but I also doubt we’d have won any more games with him at SS than Galvis. They are wildly similar players in terms of overall production and there’s no point in being upset that we didn’t keep the guy who’s probably 1% better.

    I would still take Farmer and even JVM over Iglesias if we’re talking more than the next month of games.

    Yeah, I agree it’s not a big deal, but it’s another example of the Reds making a bad choice between players, and it’s a long list.

    Speaking of repeatable skills, how's that career .291 OBP that Galvis sports working out for the team?

    I agree no team expect him to hit as well as he has been hitting so far this year, but last year with the Reds he provided almost identical fWar as Galvis. The Reds saw both players last year and chose Galvis at twice the salary over Iglasias. That's a swing and a miss in terms of talent evaluation in my book.
    Jose, defensively, runs rings around Galvis IMO. Yeah, I hated losing Iglesias. And the Orioles signed him for $3M this year, and a club option for $3m next.

    Both Jose's do. Galvis is OK, but not best idea for this team.

    If Jose Iglesias had signed with the Reds he would be hitting .178 with 0 XBH and would have 27 errors. Because Reds.

    He didn't do that while with the Reds. LOL
