Or should I say the past 5 years?? Yes fans the season is young and the panic button is not close yet but, it is just around the corner at the rate your Reds are playing… this team still can’t bunt or hit the ball to the wide open side of the field nor can they hit a cutoff man on defense… and that falls right on David Bell for allowing it to continue.
Why is Scott Schebler still playing and why is he hitting first or fifth? Please tell me why? Why is Matt Kemp not playing everyday and why is Peraza not leading off?
Last night Peraza is hitting 8th after he has been one of this teams best hitters so far… why? and can we please stop with this 4 man outfield crap?? If hitters for decades have had trouble getting a hit one out of three trips to the plate with the defense set the way it was, why change now and give them a free base hit?
More than once already Bell has yanked his starting pitcher and a relief arm that was throwing very well… again I ask why?
Yes baseball is a second guessers paradise but some things need an explanation… like we didn’t bunt because the pitcher’s stuff was too nasty?
Anyway I had high hopes for this team but I am seeing far too many things that kept this club in last place for the past 5 years and that bothers me…
and fans, there isn’t enough bobbleheads or sushi bars to get me down there right now…
