    3 straight games with a HR for Trahan? That’s…unexpected.

    Wonder if Siri is going to survive another season on the 40 man. The bat just hasn’t been there consistently enough.

      Is Matt Bowman pretty much done in terms of his chances this year? Wouldn’t Kuhnel be next in line and could take his 40-man spot? I would think they’ll be looking for some waiver wire pickups anyways.

      Stuart Fairchild and TJ Friedl have been (at least in my mind) considered similar type players, haven’t they? Without taking the injury to Freidl into consideration, is Freidl clearly the superior prospect?

      Wow, that’s extremely impressive what Garcia has done with hitting doubles. Is his stock soaring with national pundits and/or league executives?

    I thought Romano looked good tonight. 51 pitches, 31 strikes, 3 ground outs on the power sinker, no fly outs. Breaking ball looked move curveball than slider.

    Billings has held its opponent scoreless for 18 straight, and only given up eight hits the last two games. Can’t wait for the second half to start Friday.

    I was looking forward to William’s Blandino post this morning and to this point nothing. I hope someone stops by his house to make sure he is OK.

    I think it is important to remember how difficult the adjustment to AA is in the development process, maybe the most challenging. Many take more than a year to be successful and consistent there. On paper the Lookouts are loaded with prospects but many or most have struggled with consistency there. This is an area where with patience of the participants needs to be high.

    Any updates on Cody Reed lately? I haven’t heard a word about him for about 3 weeks and he was supposed to be ready to come off of the IL in late July. It is late July.
    Another good outing for my man Scott Moss. He has been on a roll now for about 2 months. This has been a set back year in the minors for most of the Reds pitching prospects. Glad he is taking a step forward.

    Tightly bunched but a lot of bodies for the Reds to crawl over to make it.

      We are the third worst team in the NL. Though not a lot of difference between us and several others in front. If there were like 2 teams ahead of us I would think there could be a chance but I don’t think the 7 other teams ahead of the Reds will play worse then us the rest of the season.

      It has been a strange season for me as a fan. I had a lot more fun last year watching the Reds then this year. Might just be that more young players got a chance to play last season then this one and you can dream on the possibilities of new players. I think we are at least 2 years and a handful moves away from being able to get a wild card spot.

        2 years or 9 weeks. I’ll root for 9 weeks. Reds have a more favorable schedule down the stretch with only 5 inter-league games remaining and those against the Angels and Mariners. 40 or so games against teams in playoff race, several against Miami, Arizona, and Mets down the stretch and a very favorable September.

        Been waiting 1/2 a decade for a team to compete, they are, you’re not happy about it, and claiming Reds are 2 years out…..WOW

      • Jasonp

        We are currently on a rate to win 74 games. To get to 85 wins we have to go 39 and 23 the rest of the way. That is a .629 winning %. Only 3 teams have won at that rate this year. If everyone keeps at their current winning rate 85 wins won’t be enough.

        Last year we won 67 games. Again on pace for 74 this year. A 7 game improvement. Is it strange to you to think it might take two years to to improve from 74 wins to 85+?

        We added two good players (Puig, Roark) and one great defensive shortstop to help boost us from a 67 win pace to 74. All three of those players are free agents next year. We need to resign or replace those players and add even more to get us to 85 wins. I think that will take two years.

        I never said I was unhappy with what the Reds have done this year. I said I enjoyed last year more.

        It was more interesting for me to watch Mahle, Reed, Romano start last year. It has been fun watching Castillo this year but I had already thought that he was great. The pitchers last year were the first times I got to see them pitch regularly. What I knew mostly about them was articles and minor league stats. So it fun to me to see them for the first time and wonder what they might be like after getting some consistent MLB experience. Senzel is the player this year that is like that. But last year there were so many more players I was making an extra effort to see including Winker and the huge improvements from Peraza and Suarez. So last year was more fun to me.

        Baseball Reference estimates the Reds probability of being a wild car team is only 7.6%. Fangraphs is more pessimistic seeing the Red’s playoff odds as only 3.3%.

        The Reds have 3 players on expiring contracts that have been productive: Roark, Puig and Jose Iglesias. If they get a reasonable offer, all three should be traded. That said, I could understand if the Reds hold onto Puig and are willing to issue him a QO.

        VanMeter and Ervin look promising–we have a couple of months to play them consistently. Gennett is starting to hit the ball harder. Votto is hitting the ball harder. Wood is close to returning. The Reds can keep a pretty competitive team on the field, no need for a major sell-off, but the odds are heavily against even one playoff game this year.

        As such, management needs to start prepping for next year. The Reds have the cash available (they’ve said payroll will be stable) to replace most of the free agents.

    I see Gutierrez and Stephens are in form again today. Not.

    It appears Senzel’s vertigo has re-appeared. I hope not but left todays game after singling in the first. Broadcasters stated he looked dizzy.
