    Hunter Greene, 106 pitches, AA. I’m beginning to think, against my better judgment. both Lodolo and Greene are coming on really fast. Look out. And I’m smong the cery last who was in favor of this.


    Saints must have some great pitchers. Louisville with 3 hits in the DH (14 innings) by 2 players. Crook with 2 hits in game 1 and Lopez with the only hit in game 2. Great to see Santillan pitching so well at AAA.

    Barrero with 2 walks and up to 11 on the year already in less than 100 PAs.
    Hunter Greene with another solid outing, until the 7th inning.

    I think those 2 and Lodolo (when his blister is healed, obviously) are ready to go from Chattanooga to Louisville.

    Sanmartin looked good until his last inning. How would his stuff play out of the bullpen? Think it’s good enough to get major league hitters out?

    Votto is rehabbed…his 0 for 3 with a k is full performance for him at this point

      I find it funny that this comment was made at 9pm and that Votto was 3-3 with a double and a triple in the game on Saturday when you made it. But haters are going to hate, I guess.

        Absolutely agree no fan of Votto. And yet you’re right he did have a strong night which you extensively covered. I feel strongly that the Red’s team build is very poor and has little to no chance of going deep into the playoffs. You opine this is a result of management’s refusal to dump money on the shortcomings and I counter the payroll is sufficient; it’s the selection and development of players that is the core issue. I believe that Votto will return to the club and throw up something to the tune of .240 to at best .280 and you and others will rave at his advanced metrics (might even try to argue how much his fielding has improved). Then you will say he was a bargain earlier in his contract and it evens out at the end. My thesis is to jettison those players when they are at their peak demand (Winkler!) as there are more than likely to be regrets if it isn’t done. If this team is to mount a sustained level of excellence the current cadre of actors will not be able to do that – nor will a minor tweak here and there. I enjoy yours and others posts on this forum but we are certainly in opposition in what forms a championship level club. I could be wrong and would love it to be so but as I look around the diamond for the Reds each player has distinct vulnerabilities (can’t run – can’t field, dead pull hitter, and perhaps not such a great team mate) – pitching has been down this year but not exclusively because of the departure of 40% of the starters or the closer (have a look at their stats – only one of the three is excelling). I do expect the starters to improve even if it means integrating one or more from AAA or AA. As to your charge of haters (or the lexicon of 20 year old), very simplistic but so is your charge that ownership is at fault. I think you are much better than this with your writing and critical analysis skills. Thank you Doug
