    Time to bring in the big guns.

    This will be a series win, possibly a sweep.

    No Senzel yet. Waiting to avoid Super 2 status like I speculated?

    Crazy Billy Hamilton stat. He's actually doing what everyone has asked him to do forever....Walking and taking pitches. He's walked 8 times this year. If he were simply hitting .230 this season, which is .015 less than his career average, he'd have a .345 OBP.

    Last 2 weeks: 7/38 at the dish, with 9 runs scored, 1 HR, 2 RBi, 12 K's, .326 OBP & 4 (net) stolen bases.

    Peraza started off really slow but has improved a bit over the last couple weeks.

    Last 2 weeks: 13/39, 5 Runs, 0 HR, 0 RBI, 6 K's, .350 OBP

    Just a hunch....He's gonna be alright.

    He's notorious for slow (pretty bad) April's.

    Absolutely. He will have a 500 OBP in May to even things back out.

    Reds 3B

    2nd last in BA
    3rd last in OBP
    4th last in SLG
    3rd last in hits


    And that is including what Suarez did. Take him out and I'd guess they are dead last since.

    No excuse to keep running Pennington out there. NONE!

    Or Gosselin or Blandino in my opinion. You bring Senzel up NOW and start giving him experience. You move Suarez to shortstop and Peraza to second base. I try and find someone to take Scooter Gennett while the getting is good. However the Reds are more often than not pretty inept at evaluating talent of other teams much else their own. See the Johnny Cueto trade.

    Now we know why Cozart wanted out of this Siberia of MLB.
