  1. 2019 Broadcasters Discussion

    Jeff Brantley is the only Reds broadcaster I enjoy listening to. That said, I am massively ready to hear Marty Brennaman absolutely lose it every time Puig does some silly grandstanding antics.

    I don’t disagree with the sleeper sentiment and would be elated if the stars align but I guess that it’s just my stoic nature to expect that it will not happen. I try not to be pessimistic or optimistic about these things and never expect the best possible outcome but always support the smartest decisions. If they were to sign Pollack that would be a win now move I am down with and move the window but since I doubt that happens I don’t want them to dive in to a multi year deal to a starter when there is a better FA class next year. Either way I am more excited about 2019 than I was in 17-18 but I still see 2020 as the big jump, especially with the pieces in place and payroll flexibility.

    This exactly. I’m not sure why we are even theorizing the what if’s of possible Reds signings. They shouldn’t and hopefully won’t make any big signings this off season. Teams in their market situation need to rely on picking their window and 2019 before Senzel/Greene/Trammel is not the time to go for it. This is just a gap year. They sacrificed Jeter Downs so it would be fun to watch them play this year, that simple. They just need to be patient, trade Scooter once Senzel comes up and sign one of aces on the market next year. Before 2010 they had a 15 year playoff drought, so I’m pretty cool with waiting one more year to maximize the next window.
  4. WHIR! Chic. V. Jack and j. Howard v. T. Smith

    Chicago and Howard all the way.
  5. Quick FLEX help! WHIR 100%

    I’d go MVS, just don’t trust Ellington at all and the other two plays are total crapshoot
  6. Need to pick 3 between Michel(NYJ), DJ(LAC), Chubb(CIN) and Cohen(DET). With Trubisky out I want to play Cohen but I think the other three are generally stronger plays.
  7. Vent & Rant Thread 2018

    My one homer heavy squad sunk my team in the semi finals. They had a 7 game week and Peraza/Votto/Suarez were a combined 14/67 (.208) for a grand total of 2 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI. Thanks Reds!
  8. Vent & Rant Thread 2018

    Went to bed thinking I had barely survived my first round matchup with a tie in my favor. Woke up this morning and found out I lost to a score change giving Acuna credit for a SB Saturday night instead of defensive indifference. To make things worse, heading in to Sunday nights game I had a 8-6 edge and was up by 17 BA points, 3 runs and 1 SB according to Yahoo. He had Bogaerts (previously 1-10 vs Keuchal) and I played Springer (previously 6-11 vs Porcello). I figured that even if Springer had a bad night and Bogaerts a good one to flip the BA disparity I would still win in a 7-7 tie and he would provide me with Run and SB insurance. It was a pretty sure thing since the odds of Bogaerts stealing or scoring 3 runs is very slim. Bogaerts goes 4/4, Springer goes 1-5 to flip the BA. Acuna gets the SB stat correction and I lose 6-7. Had I known before the beginning of the Sunday night game that we were tied in steals and it was 7-6 I probably would have played conservatively and benched Springer in which case I would have ended up with my BA lead intact .2705 to my opponents .2702 So freaking sour...
  9. September Closer Thread 2018

    Has there been any indication as to the Atlanta bullpen pecking order once Vizcaino returns? Has he been gone too long and Minter held his own or is this one of those "players should lose their role due to injury" sort of things? Haven't watched enough Braves this year to know what sort of management style Snitker has about these things.
  10. Most Trusted Closer (Other than Mo) of All-Time

    I wonder how Hoyt Wilhelm would fare in today’s game. I remember when I was a kid leafing through my baseball encyclopedia and concluding he was the greatest relief pitcher of all time. Everything is so different now though with tape and such that maybe a lot of his success was just the novelty of the knuckle.
  11. Jose Ramirez 2018 Outlook

    He took two walks and stole a base today. Fine by me as long as his strikeout rate isn't spiking.
  12. Evan Gattis 2018 Outlook

    At this point he’s a drop for roto but I am still holding in H2H. He’s a very streaky hitter and if he gets hot on the right week it could be a big difference maker.
  13. Buster Posey 2018 Outlook

    It's a definite pain micromanaging the catching position but in the end if you win a roto cat by 1 stat point squeezing every last game played can win you a league. Obviously if carrying a second catcher is preventing you from reaching stats at another position it is probably better to stack depth there. Ward has been a godsend for my Posey team though.
  14. Christian Villanueva 2018 Outlook

    Lined up to face lefties @ Coors tonight and Thursday and then Hill, Kershaw and Wood on the weekend. Considering his .336/.393/.736 vs LHP this could be a really good week for Christian.
  15. Joey Votto 2018 Outlook

    What I really want to know is if we’ll ever be so lucky to see another Dave Magadan. The ultimate high BB low K slow man. That dude was such an awesome player he got specifically featured in Little Big League right alongside Randy and Jr.
