    I'm fine with being rid of both.

    If he has an option, and I thought he didn't, then he can sit on the practice squad as insurance CF and the fact he hasn't is malpractice. Too many guys who suck in the big leagues this year. I hate the 28 man roster.

    When you can't even hit .200 I don't think it really matters from what side of the plate you hit.

    Pretty sure it's a bad front-office thing. That's where I've landed.

    This is so ridiculous. Even if Aquino struggled hard, he would still put up better numbers than freakin Van Meter, Jokewiski, and Farmer all 3 COMBINED. Sitting Moose just because a lefty is on the hill? Omg these games are worth a normal 2.7 games. If he isn’t hurting, and hurting pretty bad, he needs to play. I’d rather have my 8 year old niece manage the Reds instead of David Bell.

    Man so do I. 26 is plenty, Covid or no-Covid. It's especially noticeable when you follow a team with a bad bench and a FO who are conservative to a fault.

    Dude hit like 137 home runs in 25 games vs big league pitching.
    He should have been the starting left fielder or DH from day 1.
    The management of this team has no clue. I wonder how they got their jobs.

    Ervin’s numbers from last year should tell people that deserves a spot with a condensed and unreliable ST. I know when people don’t like a player it’s pretty much nothing they can do to change their mind. He’s struggling just like pretty much everyone on this team except Winker and has been a slower starter and every level of every season since he arrived at Double A.
    There’s a difference between his struggles then Van Meter or Jankowski.

    Unless it was an attitude or work ethic issue the only thing I have is he can only play RF?

    Because we aren't blindly cheering for every idiotic move Reds management makes? It's a recipe for mediocrity and it is getting very, very old.

    Why are teams like the Cards sticking with the old 7:15 pm game times when there are no fans? Especially on the weekends...drives an old man like me that needs his sleep nuts.

    I wish they would play more day games during this season. Makes no sense.

    Let's hope Wade Miley can follow Derek Holland's lead and have his first good start of the year.
