3.26 Reds vs. Indians 



Reds 5, Indians 1 after 1 1/2 innings. Good news is that Mesoraco and Frazier go yard; the best and better news is that Joey singles with TWO out in the 2nd, knocking in 2. Can’t honestly remember when I saw a two out hit plating a couple of R. Difference is huge; instead of 3-1, it’s 5-1; takes alot of pressure off SP and D.
Let’s see more of this Reds! BTW…both HR’s were empty bases.

Anybody see that catch by Hamilton? Slicing away from him toward left by lefty hitter, he sprinted toward LF, dove and laid out to steal a hit away. Wow…that guy is very, very quick & fast.

I’m willing to that Lutz will be the player to be named . That would be a typical Reds’s move .

I do. They needed to shore up their 1st base position when they traded off Soto.
Nothing more, nothing less.

March 27th – Friday…
Reds: RHP Raisel Iglesias will start against Matt Garza of the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.
RHP Kevin Gregg, RHP Burke Badenhop, RHP Sam LeCure and RHP Jumbo Diaz will follow Iglesias.

Everybody knows that .

Mark, will guys like Felix Perez and Marquez Smith ever get their chance with the big club? Smith age and only being a corner infielder hurts, but these look to be who are MLB ready and just seem keep being overlooked.

Are you out here looking at them? Them not being on the roster doesn’t help but I wouldn’t say they are overlooked. Smith is 30 so he’s not exactly a prospect either.

Part of Mark’s write on MLB.com on the 26th…
In the battle for the final bench spots — Chris Dominguez (.263 with two home runs entering the day), Brennan Boesch (.351 with three homers), Ivan DeJesus Jr. (batting .360) and Irving Falu (.batting .292) have all performed well.
In the battle among the relievers, prospect Michael Lorenzen has emerged as a long-man candidate. Lefties Tony Cingrani and Paul Maholm, who came to camp tabbed as starters, are now in the mix for the bullpen. Cingrani has been impressive since the change. Jumbo Diaz has been good, as has non-roster invite Kevin Gregg. J.J. Hoover and Pedro Villarreal have had some rough outings.
And while the rotation might seem settled, Price hasn’t formally locked it down. Anthony DeSclafani (1.83 ERA) has pitched great while Jason Marquis (3.15 ERA) has looked mostly good and Raisel Iglesias (2.53 ERA) has had some strong performances mixed with shakier ones.

Sounds like JJ isn’t in the mix, which suits me just fine. Over all I have a much better feeling about this team than I did coming into ST. Hope Price doesn’t make any “feel good” decisions between now and opening day. Looks like he has some tough decisions to make to get down to the 25 roster.
