    Reds at Twins (4/27 - 4/29)

    With the way this season is going, a split is good enough to get you another thread start. Reds head to Minnesota for 3.

    That Sunday matchup between Mahle & Berrios should be a treat. Two really good young arms.

    I am good with you starting threads as long as they get at least one win in a three game series for the next couple weeks.

    So, a week ago, Phil Gosselin and Cliff Pennington both were getting starts at third base over Alex Blandino. Now they are both in Triple-A.

    Did the front office ever ask Bryan Price to play Alex Blandino, who it's now very clear they wanted to be playing? How does this happen?

    He's a better fielder than Winker, so I've got no problem with him in the lineup during a game or so this series, since you can basically play/bat all 4 of your outfielders. Your other 2 choices are probably Blandino or Mesoraco. And I don't know what Riggleman's philosophy would be of using his backup catcher as the DH. It won't surprise me if Blandino gets to DH tomorrow and/or maybe even a spot start on Sunday just to keep getting him some AB's.

    Should’ve played Herrera over Duvall.

    Time to get Suarez some starts at SS as well to see how he looks there opening up third base for Blandino and eventually possibly Senzel.

    At least he's hitting in the bottom part of the order and not cleanup.

    You guys want to bash on Duvall. How about the guy in CF that cannot hit the river from the bridge.

    You must not read the Reds threads very often. Hamilton gets plenty of flak, especially when they bat him leadoff.

    They are both terrible and what’s bad, Hamilton has a higher avg and obp than Duval this year.

    Castillo can't get an out. Beating him like he stole something. He is way to good to be pitching like this. Got pressure on him with Mahle and Romano pitching better.

    Reds get a lead and give it right back.

    Castillo gave up 5 runs on 41 pitches. Yes, 41 pitches. Four innings of work in the first inning.
