    We have a glut of talented OFers so ouch so we DFA’d a former first-round pick and Mark Payton gets the start?

    What am I missing?

    I hope he has a great day, but come on. Why can’t Moustakas DH and Garcia play?

    I’m sure Garcia will play game 2.

    SP for Cubs in second game shouldn’t be as difficult.

    Ervin has barely been replacement level across roughly 600 plate appearances over his years with average defense(That’s probably being nice). Not gonna worry at all about cutting a guy like that loose even if he was a first round pick.

    Good to see Votto back in lineup,but for the life of me, I cannot understand why he is leading off. Yeah, Shogo hasn't really took the spot and run with it,but, imho, he is better suited for lead off. Not saying Joey should be batting 7th, yet, but at 6th in this line up, he could be but in a position to drive in runs.

    Nobody deserves to lead off but I’d like to see Galvis get a shot.

    From Reds Twitter

    Aristides Aquino will be the 29th player for both of today’s games.

    Hope he sticks around after the DH and they send a pitcher down.

    No problem with Votto leading off with this lineup. Top 5 guys are best hitters just hit them consecutively in any order. Then Galvis 6, etc.

    I hope Aquino gets to stay with chances to start in the OF.

    Really liking the 7 inning DHs. Of course it is probably because the Reds are 5-1 in those games. Wouldn't surprise me if they aren't here to stay going forward.

    I'll be interested in seeing how many pitches Baez gets from Bauer that are in the zone.

    Ervin stopped being a guy you think of as a first round talent 2 or 3 years before he made the majors. He's just a guy who can run, has had some success on the short side of a platoon, is gawdawful against RHP and is a terrible defensive player. Payton is also a suspect, but he may be a late bloomer. Davidson took Ervin's job and Aquino may take it long term.

    Ervin seems like a good dude. I hope some team has a spot for him, but the Reds don't need him.
