    Re: 9-6-20 Reds @ Pirates

    This is words from our closer after the game:

    “I was trying to focus myself on pitching lower in the strike zone and get a slow roller to get a double play,” Iglesias said. “Unfortunately, that's not what happened. I tried my best to do that, but [sometimes] things like that happen in baseball, and unfortunately, it just didn't go my way today.”

    Did he not know the bases were not loaded and you cant get a groundball doubleplay with runners on 2nd and 3rd with one out????? Plus Bell was dumb not to walk the bases loaded to setup a force at the plate.

    In Suarezs quote heís talking about hitting line drives and not necessarily swinging completely uphill... hone runs a function of line drives.

    These arenít bad principles.

    I would assume (maybe a big assumption) that some form of situational hitting is added on top of this, but you wouldnít know from watching the team.

    I would argue that players not succeeding with this expand the strike zone too much, or arenít that talented. The Reds hit into a ton of double plays because they have players exploited by shifts and reaching outside their zone to make mediocre groundball contact.
