    If we are going to trot out an OF that struggles to hit .200 let it be one that hits the crap out of the ball when he does connect.

    The Brent Rooker plan. I like it.

    Hinds has 2 fewer XBH than Espinal in just 4.3% of the AB.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    This has been fun, an amazing start to an MLB career. But I will hold judgement on him until he faces another pitching staff besides the Rockies.

    Today was Stephenson's first game ever with 3 XBH. Took Hinds 2 games.

    Aquino aside, I won't hold a great start against him. He was crushing breaking balls tonight too.

    So fun

    Have no idea why they throw him anything over the plate. Do the Rockies not have any advance scouts or planning with rest of org?

    Like for real, embarrassing the stuff they give him to hit, and hats off to Rece for capitalizing in such a cosmetically fun way.

    His OPS after last night is 2.500. The sum total of the OPS for the Reds 5,6, 8, and 9 hitters in last night's lineup was 1.898.

    Maybe this guy is one of those that suddenly finds "it" when they make the big leagues? One can hope anyway. Let's enjoy this while its happening and see what happens with him. I do know that after two games he has made it very hard for the Reds to send him back to Louisville any time soon and to also take him out of the lineup.

    FWIW, this also describes Will Benson

    It's all going to come down to strikeout rate with him. The raw power has always been incredible.

    Hopefully it's as simple as reining it in a little bit in certain situations when he's way behind in the count.

    Re: A thread for Rece Hinds

    The hope I have now is the hope I had when Dunn was brought up. A spark. Not just for the team as a whole but for individual players that may be struggling.

    I think this can help Benson. Stephenson showed life too.


    OTOH, it is Rockies pitching in GABP on a humid day with rain. So there is that.

    Dave Winfield, Carlos Delgado, Tony Perez, Fred McGriff, Paul Molitor, Mickey Mantle & Harmon Killebrew combined for 6,780 extra-base hits in their MLB careers.

    None of them ever had 5 over a 2-game span.
