Reds @ Diamondbacks (7/7-7/9)

Page 2 of Romano down and Winker back up. Figured Romano would be down because of the AS break. I'd expect he will be back for another start. Advertisement 0 0 0... 24 comments | 539 Views | Go to page 1 →

    I'm telling you Scooter is in my lineup until he spits the bit.

    This.

    I think you're seeing what you want to see. As VOR said, "Votto tied for first in the NL in walks. On pace for the third most walks in a season in his career." He is walking just as much as always (actually more).

    Slugging suggests the hits he is getting are more XBH than singles. Given that XBH (particularly HRs) are up across MLB, I'd like to see how much Votto's increase in XBH ('17 v. '16) exceeds the MLB increase '17 v. '16).

    Peraza boots a double play ground ball right at him and now bringing in Lorenzen to face Goldschmidt with two runners on. Hamilton has struck out three times today which a lead off hitter can not do. Reds 2-1 for now.

    Lorenzen strikes out Goldschmidt to perserve a 2-1 Reds lead.

    Nice enough road trip for the Reds to finish out before the AS Break.

    Back on Friday for four vs. the Nationals.

    Castillo looked phenomenal Saturday, then Homer with the gem yesterday.

    I think they move Feldman before the deadline.

    Time to let the young guys (and Bailey) show what they've got...I would like to see the 2nd half rotation of:

    Homer
    Castillo
    Romano
    Stephenson
    Garrett/Reed/Davis/Stephens
