    I think it's safe to say Diaz will not be needed today.

    He needs to have better pitch recognition. Swinging at pitches he has no business swinging at then taking a fastball in the hitting zone fir a strike does not help the team. The other teams have him figured out and he refuses to adjust

    Could it be that the expectations are the problem? Or the "fans"? CES was going to AAA... now people are calling for a rearrangement of the line up based on each strike out. Every pitcher sucks... then doesn't...

    To me you take the bad with the good. The team hasn't played well and we're going to be .500. I'll take it all day.

    He needs a day off to show him lazy nonchalant play will not be tolerated. It happened twice.

    What rankles me is that he was elevated to HOF status before he even stepped into the box on OD 2023. The Reds didn't handle the "Elly phenomenon" intelligently, so they deserve some of the blame. There are very real holes in his game, including defensive inconsistency at SS.

    If McLain hadn't torn up his shoulder diving at ST practice grounders, he would have been a real option at SS, but that option is gone. The Reds probably never have considered Marte an option at SS, but I'd be interested to see him given a shot.

    Long-term, I still see De La Cruz as a real asset in RF.

    Thatís it right there. If you have great hype you better perform or youíre gonna hear criticism, and lots of it. Itís just how society works. For this board in particular, it certainly doesnít help that you have certain morons claiming any and all anti De La Cruz talk is race based. Thatís not good for the discussion, for the board as a whole, or frankly for anything.

    Full count running on the pitch paid dividends by making the Phils make the long throw for the out which they didn't get!

    If the Rockies played the White Sox, would either team win?

    Race based? I haven’t seen that at all.
