    Yes, but no need to start anymore clocks on a wasted year. You need 3 or 4 spot starts, bring up somebody that the clock has started and has options.

    Maybe he needs to take care of that hair so that his cap fits and then he can concentrate on pitching rather than making sure his hat stays on his head. Just something I have noticed each and every time that he has pitched.

    Put Garrett in the rotation.

    That is funny but I have noticed that too. He spends alot of time adjusting his cap.

    Castillo has no business being sent down. If the kid is part of your future you let him figure it out up at the major league level and take his lumps.

    If, and IMO it’s a horrible idea, you do move him from the rotation, you have to give his spot to Garrett.

    The minor league option is Mella. Kid got a cup of coffee last September and is probably ready for a shot.

    Stephenson is, unfortunately, a mess right now.

    1. Winker 9
    2. Peraza 6
    3. Votto 3
    4. Gennett 4
    5. Suarez 5
    6. Schebler DH
    7. Duvall 7
    8. Mesoraco 2
    9. Hamilton 8

    Romano 1

    I like this lineup the best of any I've seen. I might flip Suarez and Gennett.

    Iím not saying Herrera is anything special but he was swinging a hot bat at AAA. Throw him in there and see if he can stay hot, donít bring him up and let him rot on the bench. The reds confuse me. Heís younger than Duvall and was once considered a top prospect. Or let him play for Hamilton. The Reds have to have the worst offensive outfield in baseball outside of Winker but Ervin or Herrera cant get a legit shot.

    I agree with you 100%. He is still only 25, has decent speed and has some pop.

    Interesting tidbit:

    Cozart: .221.-.279-.368-.647
    .286 avg and .311 OBP is hilarious.

    I think Castillo is fine. Nothing really jumps out as alarming right now. He’s not controlling it well and making mistakes. Let him work through it.

    Hamilton pops up with man on third and one out. Just don't understand how you can continue to play a man that is no offense threat except for base stealing.

    And Winker strikes out and Suarez flys out. First and third with no out and do not score. It amazing how last night they were smoking the ball and clutch hitting and today they can't get out of their own way.
