The Cincinnati Reds won in walk-off fashion over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night under the lights. It was, and wasn’t as exciting as it sounds. The win didn’t come on a home run. It didn’t come on a hit. But it did come in a bases loaded wild pitch scenario that saw Leandro Santana, pinch running for Joey Votto, slide head first into the plate to bring home the win for the Reds, 6-5. This afternoon they will take on the Texas Rangers in a road game at 4:05pm ET.

    Doug – What’s your early review of Tommy Thrall play-by-play? Are we listening to the future voice of our Reds?

    Like to see what Schebler could do with a full year of health. Hasn’t been able to yet.

  3. Big Ed

    I suppose they could still sit/trade Gennett, and play Senzel at second. It would boil down to this: If Schebler plays, do you (after April 15ish) sit Senzel or Gennett?

  4. Tom Mitsoff

    Agreed. In a fair fight, Schebler has won, but not because Senzel did poorly. Gives the front office a very reasonable explanation for sending Senzel down.

    Schebler has been impressive. He looks ready. Senzel has been good. He also looks ready. He is also the second most talented hitter in the Reds organization and has nothing left to prove in AAA. What this comes down to is how much stock you put in ST numbers. Schebler performing well certainly gives the Reds an excuse to send Senzel down for a couple of weeks. However, Senzel deserves the spot.
