2019 Reds Thread

  • Wed, Apr 3, 2019 3:17 PM

    Reds finished last in the league last year in  win % in 1 run games. That’s 3 straight 1 run losses, smh. These guys need to get better at clutch hits. We don’t hit with RISP and when the game gets close in the later innings, everyone’s afraid to come up with the big hit.

    Lol. You need to grow some thicker skin. 

    How does my response show thin skin? I could not care less about this. Seems like you're the one who cannot stand people disagreeing with you.

    Yeah but when I said this was 100% salary manipulation, you said no it was because Schebler has mlb experience and had a better spring. 

    Schebler stinks and we shouldn’t have kept Senzel in the minors just to get another year out of him down the road. It’s damaging THIS YEAR’S team. 

    No, what I said exactly was:

    Well, you're in the front office so I'll take your word for it. Whether it is or not, it's a reasonable decision for the Reds. Schebler had a better spring and will start in CF.

    The bolded being a direct response to your "100% service time manipulation" claim. That's not "no" by any stretch.

    Oh give me a break. You said it’s not salary manipulation and said you’re fine with Schebler since he gives us experience and had a better spring. It was an idiot comment then and is an idiot comment now.

    I can understand the Reds starting him in the minors. He played only 44 games last season and is learning a new position. I'm usually annoyed by obvious service time manipulation, but I'm no so sure this is a case of that. He had a nice spring, but I don't think a few more weeks of work in the minors is incredible unreasonable.

    I seem pretty adamant in my opinion here, wouldn't you say? Look how sure I am when I say "I'm not so sure."

     

    Good lord, you're annoying.

    At least Luis Castillo looks great to start the year.

    Can’t wait until they grade Castillo at the deadline for some great prospect

    Do the Reds score a run tonight?

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 7:13 PM

    Doubt it. 

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 7:56 PM

    22 scoreless innings

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 8:21 PM

    How the hell do you get picked off when the batter is sacrificing?!

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 8:57 PM

    I hate the gd reds

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 9:23 PM

    27 scoreless innings. Wasting some good pitching. JGDC.

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 9:51 PM

    Three consecutive shut-outs. Cool.

    The other team only scored 5 runs in those three games.

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 9:59 PM

    Team ERA was 2.89 going into this game, so it actually dropped. And they're 1-6. They've only score 11 runs in 7 games.

    It’s karma for being greedy with Senzel
