News and Notes

Nick Lodolo’s leg issues……

It appears that Nick Lodolo didn’t quite recover from yesterday’s bullpen session as well as everyone would have hoped. Now he’s going to be re-evaluated for the injury to his leg that kept him out for most of the 2023 season.

Noelvi Marte to debut tomorrow

    Thanks for the injury update. Williamson hurt? Thought the kid looked promising last season

    Nice way to claw back 2 runs. Wish Harrison had found his way home.

  3. Mark Moore

    Three innings from Williamson. Glad he settled back down and was more pitch efficient.

    Just looked at the box. Arroyo with another hit and RBI. I’m liking this guy more and more.

      He’s the kind of fish we want to stock the pond with, that’s for certain.

    Doug – It seems that the plugin you talked about it messing up again. With your permission I’m going to try a different email address next time if you think that might help. Again, sorry to bother you with this.

      • Melvin

        Okay. Might try it anyway just to change it up. Let me know if there’s anything I can do. I know you’re extremely busy.

        Unless you are involved in the coding of wordpress plugins there’s nothing that you can do. And if you are involved in the coding of wordpress plugins, let’s chat.

        Sorry. I’ll just let it ride for at least a week or so either way as to not to bug you too much. Thanks for your help.

    That’s a Clete for me from Gameday monitoring. Time to shut things down.

    We’ll get them next time. The reds appear to be out of sync.

    • Melvin

      Still some positive things happened.

    Kind of an ugly game tonight. Some guys are looking pretty good early, like Arroyo, EDLC, Callahan, Fairchild while some aren’t, eg Friedl, Candelario, CES, Stephenson. EDLC and Fraley have SO just short of half their ABs. Hopefully, the Reds actually do make the first cuts next week. I’d like to see the Reds take a different approach this season and cut early. Get to the team that’s coming north earlier than usual and try to develop some cohesion. Winning ST games is nice but not relevant. Getting the team functioning as a unit is.

      “I’d like to see the Reds take a different approach this season and cut early. Get to the team that’s coming north earlier than usual and try to develop some cohesion”

      Might help get off to a better start than in recent years. Sounds good to me if possible.

      Functioning as a unit makes a lot of sense and seems to me one of the main points of spring training. It’s an old fashion concept, but I would call it team chemistry.
