The kids woke me up at 5:30 am, so I thought I’d be the first to comment. It was a solid night for the organization.. Jose Siri seems destined for the mid-season call up to Louisville. Hopefully he can make a run at a 2020 starting spot. Doug, if Siri could make a run at the centerfield job what do you think would happen. Specifically, do you put senzel back in the dirt or slide him left or right? My friends tab me as an ultimate optimist and they’re probably right. If our reds could find a way to get two more in the Bay, we could close the gap in the coming weeks. Sniffing around at .500 would be a great start. I remember dusty once saying the goal is to get 10 over .500. If you can do that you can sort of take off. We are a ways from that; however, if we could get a nice cushion over .500 before the break, it would have to be cause for optimism. Finally, in Votto I trust. I think he will come around and that eliminates the hole in the offense. I, like many other fans I saw last night thought that was our best line-up hands down. Peraza off the bench as a late inning replacement. The one thought is Cassali, he may be a better choice to at least split time behind the plate. His arm keeps him in there I believe though. Here’s to making a run. Go reds. Cheers Cguy May 11, 2019 The skill set that Siri has puts him on the Reds active roster in 2020 as a 4th outfielder at least. Siri would start in cf vs lhp & Senzel would play @ 2nd (instead of Scooter or Dietrich) or 1st (sit Votto), perhaps even lf (sit Winker). The rest of the time Siri gives you power, speed, & a defensive upgrade in the outfield off the bench. With a 26 man roster, Siri is an asset. As for being an everyday cf, Siri still has a way to go. The Reds didn’t have enough pitching to support a weak hitting, defensive cf (Billy Hamilton) before, but they just may now. Finally the Reds are (right now) an interesting, competitive ballclub. Only the Cubs & Dodgers have a higher + run differential in the NL. They are still learning how not to lose ballgames. Cheers back at ya. MK May 11, 2019 The Reds are developing a group that could be Team Cuba in the next World Classic. Tony Fossas could manage, Pitchers – Iglesias, Guttierez,Despaigne, Fossas, Infield- Iglesias, Rodriguez, Garcia Outfield- Puig. Could be more people with heritage that I don’t know but these guys would create a nice nucleus. asinghoff99 May 11, 2019 Doug, anything you’re seeing or hearing about Santillan’s walk rate? Made major strides last year but now he seems like he’s right back to where he was. Currently sitting right near his career low as far as K/BB ratio. Seems to be getting out of jams but that won’t translate so hopefully it’s fixable. Bob Anderson May 11, 2019 He will be prone to periods of high walk rates due to the type of pitcher he is. I never was that impressed with his “strides” in that regard. IMO, he is a high k, high BB pitcher who won’t give up a bunch of hits(he was more hit prone than he probably really was last year and that has dropped this year as well). Like many of a power pitcher. Patience chief. This season is only 20% done.
