  • David Bell seems to have taken quite a bit of fan criticism for his lineup moves, frequent double switches and quick hook on starting pitchers ( not from me, though).  My question is does Bell actually make out the lineups and decide all the double …
  • Streak stops at 6 as the brewers win 6-5.
  • Tom Emanski won’t be putting that one on his highlight list, for either team, but it’s a win, it’s 6 in a row, just 4.5 back, and Castillo on the hill tomorrow (although the last Castillo pitched in Miller Park it didn’t go so well).
  • So far the 5 starters have been healthy all year, which is unusual.  If that continues, I wonder whose spot Wood might take.  Most of the time, these situations sort themselves out because of injuries or poor performance, but so far that has not hap…
  • I did a bunch of research last night to look at the teams leading MLB in run scoring this year to see what they have on common. Tried to paste the table here but couldn't figure out how to do it. What I saw, in summary, was this. Below is the averag…
  • Sac bunts and stolen bases have lost their place in the game. Yes, important in niche situations, but not widely used as their cons are now known to outweigh their pros. In my opinion, in this day in age pitching changes are less about number of p…
  • Five in a row! 7-1 winners in Milwaukee. Iglesias with 4 RBI, Senzel a 2-run HR, and 6 well pitched innings from Roark.
  • Reds pass up opportunity for small ball, don’t bunt, and score 3 in the first. And yes, DICK, I’m having a little fun with you. It’s all good natured. It is worth noting, however, that it isn’t just the Reds playing for the big inning. That is h…
  • Well now this is interesting: Rays to explore playing in BOTH Tampa and Montreal
  • In 5 games since being called up from AAA Round Rock, the Astros’ Yordan Alvarez is batting .381 with 4 homers, 8 RBI’s, and a 1.471 OPS. Springer and Correa are out though. Altuve too. And they haven’t missed a beat. Until they ran into a buz…
  • Huge series win. With Gennett in rehab starts now, I am very hopeful this team takes this series and momentum and starts making some moves! 5.5 behind the Cubs, and 4.5 out of wild card...anything can happen! And Alex Wood, who when healthy is a leg…
  • Reds also won 4-straight in early April, right after the 8-game losing streak. A win tonight would give them their first 5-game streak of the year.  11 of the next 13 are against the Brewers or Cubs. We'll know a lot more about how the 2nd half will…
  • Down 1 in the 9th with a runner on 2nd and no out, David Bell went against the bunt, playing for two runs instead of one. It worked. lol   So you pick one inning out of one game and you use that as a justification for your strategies.  How about t…

  • But I do know your Redlegs have won 3 in a row!!
  • Or it was just Mol posting research with no objective. Or maybe it was rhetorical. We may never know.
  • Scooter starts a rehab assignment and was hopeful he can rejoin the team at the end of next week.
  • Do these figures include both Home and Away games?  Isn't the Goggin's seating capacity only around 2,200?  If this is just home attendance, then I'd suggest Miami is doing quite well!!  Case in point, BU's hockey rink seats over 6,000, but they onl…

  • Would be more interested in % of capacity as our max sales would still be pretty low.
  • Edwin Encarnacion on the move - to the Yankees. And when Judge and Stanton come back - holy toledo they'll have some power. 
  • And now both Durant and Klay Thompson will most likely miss all of the 2019-2020 season with injuries. If free agency wasn't going to end the Warriors run, this just may do it. 
  • If I'm bunting, and that's a HUGE if, it's with no outs when the team only needs one run in a final inning (9th or extras and probably only at home). But the situation (hitter, pitcher, runner on 2b) still provides too many variables to make a blank…

  • This game was the equivalent of the New England Patriots playing the Miami RedHawks before the match even began.  At some point you'd think that the celebrations would be more subdued, even possibly right from the get-go.  Yes, this is THE WORLD CUP…
  • How do the Reds keep losing so many close games? Their bullpen seems to be pretty solid, but every time I look up they're winning blow-outs and losing 1 and 2-run games. Simply stated: consistent pitching, inconsistent bats.  Another example today.…
  • I also think situational hitting or the ability to manufacture a run when you need it seems to be missing.  The Indians offense sucks but they are often able to move runners around and get a run when they really need it, thus the better record. Defi…
  • First time ever Indians pitcher gave up back to back homers in a home game.  Senzel and Votto!!   the rookie Plesac, however, seems unperturbed and has retired 12 straight since the homers. To clarify, back-to-back HR to start a home game.  Reds lea…
  • They’re playing in the World Cup, some for the first time, some for the only time. Live it up, I say.
