    How many times is Jonathan India going to get hit by a pitch this year ? ”Man-o-Man”
    They’re throwing darts at him. He must be crowding that plate. It’s ”worrisome” to say the least.

    When do we start the “who do the reds get when they fire sale” conversion? The problem is the guys we need to trade have no value right now. Puig? Scooter? Wood? I guess the guy with the most value is José Iglesias! Well maybe Tanner Roark has some value too. If what we have seen stays the same, this team is in huge trouble not just this year but for years to come.

      It’s May 18th and reds are in the hunt. First time long time for that. So I’ll embrace that vs talk about trading talent away for players who’ll most likely never play major league ball at any significant level. Reds are better off keeping and trying to retain any or all of those guys.

        Never giving up on the Reds. It can be mighty Frustrating being a Fan. When the Highs do come it will make it feel even sweeter. I will keep banging the table, that this Offense is not this Horrible. The bad part is if the offense wakes up the Pitching will fall off most Likely.
        I would like the players to take a more serious approach to the Game. Glad players have are Nice People. I get smiling having Fun. That is Great for the Fans. That does not Win a Game. Do that type stuff in the Dugout. If hit a Hr Put your head down, go around Bases act like you have done it before. All teams showing off i get that.
        Lets be different Reds. Set the bar. Be the Nasty Reds. Set the Culture!!

    Need some clarification

    fielder gets a ground ball – throws to home – catcher misses the ball – runs scores – hitter moves to second.

    Stats give a fielder’s choice and a throwing error to fielder.

    Why isn’t the run unearned – guy is getting an error anyway?

    • Krozley

      It seems in that case that it was determined the runner at 3rd would have scored anyway even if the catcher caught the ball, making it earned. The error applies to the hitter moving up a base because of the catcher missing it. If that player eventually scores as a result of getting that extra base, he would be unearned depending on the circumstances.

      • TK

        so why not give an error to the catcher for missing/dropping the ball and it getting pass him to allow the runner to score?

      • Doug Gray

        Because the scorer determined the runner would have scored on the play whether the catcher caught the ball or not.

    I really feel like India ,Garcia are huge for the future . If they Both turn out . I believe both future core with Senzel. Trammell seems like could be or a future Trade Chip. If he is just a Corner OF he has less Value. India, Garcia, I feel like can be more Flexible.

    • DaveCT

      Trammell would be in CF if not for Siri, currently. If his body develops in such a way he outgrows CF, then he’s.on a corner. But not yet. He also has been projected as a 20-20 guy at his peak in the ML’s. So, an up the middle player projecting as he does offensively would likely have him with greater value than India and Garcia. I’d say he is part of the core with Senzel, India, Stephenson, and hopefully Garcia. Not to mention old man Suárez and old man Winker.

      • kevinz

        I get he suppose to be able to play CF but he has not. Trammell even said himself he is raw on Defense. I am thinking India, Garcia Both will be able to play. Both the corner OF spots plus 3rd 2nd base.
        That where the Versatility comes from. If trammell Rakes plus plays CF all bets are off lol.

    • donny

      I don’t know if trading Trammell or having him as a trade chip is a very good idea.
      Him and Siani are the only left handed hitters we have in the reds top 25 farm system.

      • kevinz

        Very good Point Donny. That seems not to hurt the Stros though. Springer, Bregman, Altuve .
        I get they have added some LHH, but the core all RHH.
        Suarez our vet like Altuve . Senzel hope to be Bregman type. India Springer type. Power with walks and SO. Listen i hope we keep Trammell just was throwing out an idea.

    • Bill

      At this point, I really want the Reds to hold until to Trammell. From a stats standpoint, his season looks a little meh. However, he’ll play this whole season at age 21 at AA. If he had gone to college, he’d be one of the juniors we’d all be following for the draft. Very few, if any, of those juniors will be ready for AA this summer. He looks like a great bet to produce as a solid major league starter with his plus plate discipline and solid tools across the board. With his youth and athleticism, he has the potential to be much, much more. I think he fits nicely with the Reds long term.

    • Wes

      So let’s just say Miami would have preferred trammell to sixto Sanchez. Would u be pleased at this point w that trade for realmuto ? He’s hitting pretty good for Phil’s. I think I would be. Woulda be swearing when they traded trammel away but today I would have been very pleased to have him as their whole offense would prob be a bit better bc of it

      • DaveCT

        Or, in other words, would any of us trade Trammell straight up for Sanchez? How fast can we say yes. Love Trammell, but still.

      • Bill

        No, I’m glad we kept Trammell. That said, I think the playing time should be shifting from Barnhart to Casali. The difference in value between Casali and Realmuto is small if you adjust for the difference in opportunity (PA and innings). It’s getting harder to attribute Casali’s success as “small sample size.”
