    When you're playing a man down you can't waste pinch hitters, especially when the pitcher is about as capable as the guys you'd be bringing in to PH.

    LeCure is not the answer to anyone's bullpen problems. He has been awful at AAA

    Just leave Jumbo in at this point. Let him keep going.

    I think we need some comedy relief.

    I was actually very glad they let him hit. He's not your average hitting pitcher he's a heck of an athlete that could've just as easy been an everyday outfielder if a team wanted him to be. The way he battled and in his major league debut I think he earned the chance for a second ab especially after he had probably the best at bat of the game his first time up. I really don't think that decision had a big impact on the game.

    #Reds bullpen has allowed at least one run in 14 of 18 games where they pitched (not counting when Chapman was the sole reliever).

    Maybe Walt wants to rebuild and trade Cueto/Chapman? It really is one of the only logical possibilities I can think of as to why you continue to run this garbage out.

    Wouldn't you bring up the young guys and let them get some experience if that were the case?

    Did they credit a hit on that first bunt, the one that Jumbo threw in the dirt to second base?
