    His WAR for last season was below 2. That's not an everyday player. Because of his speed he scores on a disproportionate amount of the times that he gets on base. Honestly, he'd probably be more valuable as a pinch-runner/defensive replacement. He definitely needs to be out of the leadoff spot when he does play and Duvall is right where he needs to be-- No higher than 6th. I like Winker in the leadoff spot and Gennett in the top 4.

    It was great to see the Reds pitchers pitch as well as they did.

    I really don't think that the starting pitching is going to be a problem this year. They don't have studs like the Nats do but I think we will get solid starts this year. It is going to be up to the offense to win games.

    They almost never tell us anything until we are there and then after 60-120 mins of standing around, they tell us to head home because they aren't playing. So I got nothing.

    I have to believe they aren't playing tonight, based on the forecast, especially since there will be plenty of opportunities to make up a game against the Cubbies.

    If they do get rained out, I hope they skip Cody Reed.

    Interesting point, he was only on the roster for this start today, which means they could have kept an extra reliever instead if they dont play today.

    I think they would considering Finnegan is likely (hopefully) ready when it comes back around.

    In his defense, Hamilton does have good numbers vs Lester.

    And you can practically guarantee that he will be on third against him, if he can get on.

    Gates not open yet at GABP. Why the delay?
