    Darnell Sweeney does something every day in these recaps, Doug. I don’t know much about him. Whats the quick scoop on his ability and whats his long term outlook with the Reds?

    • Doug Gray

      Possibly an extra outfielder. I’d like to get a better look at him defensively in CF though because I just haven’t seen much of him out there.

    I would say add an getting a established reliever to the list of offseason needs. The reds bullpen has been boarder line awful lately and the higher ranking relievers (hernandez, weiss, hendrix) are not giving anyone much hope right now

    Nick Senzel, what can’t you do???

    Nice to see Chacin get his feet wet. He left a fastball up to LaStella, probably nerves, but the backup action on his fastball locked up a few guys, even at 90mph.

    Louisville and Indianapolis have identical records. Just have to flip the wins and losses on one of them. We should have deep pitching at Louisville with Reed, Stephenson, Garrett, etc., but it sure doesn’t show up in the wins column.

  5. MIchael B. Green

    Assuming that Long is given a mental/physical rest, I’m guessing that his is a prime candidate for the Arizona Fall League? Any other obvious others? Wonder if Siri goes there?

    Michael Beltre seems to be putting together a good finish to his disappointing season.

    It is funny to listen to the Reds TV people when it comes to who should be the next shortstop in the event that Cozart moves on. Welch and Brennaman don’t want to even entertain the idea of moving the gold glove (sands Arenado) of Suarez over, but they won’t give any solution. I agree that moving Suarez is not the ideal answer, but the fact of the matter, is that Senzel is going to be ready come next June and it is doubtful that there is another solution to having both of them in the lineup. I do not believe that second base is part of the solution.

    Suarez has become my favorite Red’s player and he really seems to enjoy playing the game. I understand that smiling and enjoying yourself is not a requirement to play, but from my perspective, it’s fun to see. I like Duval and Schebler a lot, but if I had to pick one player to lock up for a while, it would be Suarez.

      Suarez struggled at SS a couple of years ago, and he struggled at 3rd base last year. He improved greatly at 3rd base this year. Is it not possible that his improvements would carry back to short?

      As Doug mentioned yesterday, his production at shortstop would be amazing. If they can keep Suarez in the lineup, add a productive Senzel, and find a way to get Winker in the lineup everyday (assuming he is indeed a .300/.400 hitter), that would be a tough lineup.

  7. MikeD

    I believe Suarez could be as good as Rich Aurilia when he was playing with the Giants and certainly by the time he played for the Reds. Suarez bulked up when he moved over to third, so he may have to do some Yoga to improve his agility. If he worked at it the way he did third base, I believe he can be adequate. His bat would be great, as Doug mentioned.

    Key items to look at for 2018 season for potential improvement at the big league level:
    New Manager to change the atmosphere. Price hasn’t been dealt a great hand but as a former pitching coach he hasn’t shown talent in bringing the most of out the young pitchers and the losing seems accepted. A NEW VOICE IS NEEDED!
    Make decision on future at SS until Rodriquez is ready.
    Make decision on Winker or Schebler
    ADD at least one veteran proven starter.
    ADD at least one proven veteran reliever prefer a left hander
    Decide which young pitchers at AAA/MLB level that you want to grow with and look to move a couple to improve MLB roster.
    What date will Senzel be called up?
