Braves at Reds (4/23 - 4/26)

Page 8 of Seems weird that the Reds only come home for a four game series and then bounce for the weekend. I'm predicting two wins. Advertisement 0 0 0   &n... 108 comments | 6198 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Joey is the least of their worries. They're 5-20 and, from reading several writers, they need to embark on a 2nd rebuild because they botched the first one. Votto is headed towards an age-fueled decline and will never win a playoff series in a Reds uniform as a player.

    I have to admit that I was a Hamilton fan in previous years but I am absolutely stunned at the number of chances that he gets to play on the regular basis. He shouldn't be starting and he definitely should not be leading off!

    Why can't they use him as a super sub. They can let him run in important situations in close games, let him finish games in the outfield as a defensive replacement.

    He can be an important player on this team but you can not continue to let him hit. He has proven that he can not get on base with any regularity.

    What more does Winker need to do to start and lead off every game? He's been the best hitter on this team up to this point.

    .323 AVG
    .449 OBP
