Without a juiced ball we'll get to see how good Franmil isn't.

He’s one that I don’t feel a juiced ball helped much. His HR aren’t typically wall scrapers….he’s a big strong man

That was only like the 3rd worst decision!

  1. I know Tito is set in his ways...but FFS stop benching out best guys (Naylor and Kwan today) in these types of games. Give them days off vs the Royals and Tigers...not the team battling you for 1st
  2. Bases loaded and no outs. You have to pinch hit Kwan or Palacios (whoever you didnt pinch run with) and Naylor for Clement and Maile. Instead, we went back-to-back-to-back Mendoza line guys
  3. Franmil has to be pinch run for in the above situation. Not just for running -- which cost them the tying run -- but for defense. As he missed a pretty routine fly next inning (didnt hurt them)


So incredibly frustrating. When Clement walked to the box I was so angry. Then when Maile followed I was appoplectic. 

Is it Tito making out the lineup or the front office/analytics dept? For the Reds it seems it’s not David Bell making out the lineups anymore.

Tito is obviously great, but I hate his multiple lineups every day. I wish they had a steady lineup and just went with it. And pinch hit your very bad players. But can’t complain on that road trip. Big series coming up

Maybe input from them. But he is notorious for giving his guys days off all at once just because they played less than 24 hrs prior or when they have another off day and can get 2 in a row days off

Phillies swooped in and picked up Mercado, basically the perfect replacement for Bryce Harper

Tribe is 0-5, and not particularly competitive since Tito’s worst managed game in years.

Naylor is one of the more clutch players we’ve had.

Probably a good thing, all things considered. 

Would’ve hated to trade any of our top-100 prospects with the hope Owen Miller and Myles Straw we’re gonna carry us over the top.

Looking at Straw's stat line, is he batting about .034 since getting into it with Yankee fans? Because at that time, I thought he was mid-high .200s and now he's around .190.
