    Re: 9-5-20 Reds @ Pirates

    When I just looked and saw Reds team hitting .215, it brought home how miserable things have been.

    I mean, while BA isn’t considered that important, who can win a pennant hitting .215 as a team?

    I agree with you. Looks like Bell lets some of the players pick where they wanna play not where they need to play.
    Remember when Castellanos was pulled late in a game for defense? Then he threw a fit and hasn't been pulled since. Anytime in the 9th inn. that this team has a lead Nick should be planted on the bench.

    This team deserves to crash and burn going with Akiyama (.200/.292/.260/.552) over Aquino.

    And I know bb will back me up on that.

    I guess the question is who is the better CFer and who is the better LFer.

    Goodwin plays shallow CF, he looks ok out there with that style.

    Shogo looks smooth in CF, not sure about his range, he looks excellent in LF.

    Is this really an issue, not sure it is.

    I’m not going to act like I care about the OF defense when the INF defense is bad.

    I want Aquino in there until he’s shown that he’s more fail than not.

    Put 24 year old Andruw Jones in CF if you want....our defense would still suck though

    Billy Hamilton was DFA’d....sign him up for CF every night and let him rock a .519 OPS

    My guess is Shogo is the LF and Goodwin is only in their until Senzel returns. Probably just trying to leave Shogo alone and see if he settles in.

    No Red is hitting above .250 other than Winker. If you want to use BA as the correct metric. Team is hitting .215, last in the NL in BA.
    Having the second highest BA on the team and not setting the world on fire are not mutually exclusive. OPS is overrated. Pete Rose had a low OPS because he was a singles hitter. Pete Rose's OPS+ is ranked 411th all time. I would argue that there is no way I can think of 410 other guys that I would like to have on my team ahead of Pete Rose.

    I’m beginning to think that it’s not just Disco tipping his pitches.

    Josh Bell isn't hitting this year but also he's real bad at fielding, so the Pirates got that going for them.
