This thread is a little slow lately. Wonder when they'll give Tyler Mahle a shot? No hitter last year at Daytona - Perfect game earlier this year at Pensacola and a 2.73 ERA in 10 starts since his promotion to Louisville. Even though he is still only 22 years old he's had a 43-28 record, with a 4-1 K to BB ratio and not tater prone. Most of our guys give up a tater every 4 or 5 innings - even Castillo has given up 9 in 54 inning. Mahle for his career gives up 1 every 14 innings. He and Castillo have had far better minor league numbers than the merry go round of pretenders that have had a shot lately. Castillo seems the real deal. Mahle outperforming Garrett, Stephens, Wojo, Stephenson, Davis, Bonilla, Reed. Who else has had a shot this year? Romano has looked a little better lately - I still hold out hope for him. If Mahle doesn't have a fragile psyche let's give him a shot

I just found this thread - a little too long to try and catch up and see why people think Votto sucks? 12th hardest man in major league history to get out. I do wish he'd be less willing to walk with runner on 3rd and less than 2 outs. I trust him to drive in the run even on a marginal pitch more than the rest of the order. Also, when he sees early in a series that a team's right handers are going to bust him WAY inside the whole series, I wish he'd move off the plate a little and make them go back outside more. He loves to drive that pitch to left field anyway

Well, I got my wish. The Reds called up Tyler Mahle and he starts Sunday against the Pirates. Hope he fairs better than most of the Louisville connection has this year

Inconclusive on Mahle. Looked great for 3 innings then got rattled and wild in the 4th and 5th. Ended up with 5 IP 4H 3ER 5K 4BB 2HBP

Second start for Mahle. 6 innings. 5 hits including a couple of infield hits. 0 walks. 0 runs. After 2 starts - 11 innings and 3 earned runs. ERA at 2.45. Encouraging. Of course after he left the game the pen blew it.

In Joey Votto, Reds are wasting the Ted Williams of our generation - SweetSpot- ESPN

I wonder what kind of numbers Votto could put up if he ever had a serviceable leadoff hitter.

According to league sources Reds and Giants in serious discussions involving a trade that would include Billy Hamilton.

Good thing we let Cozart go without offering him a qualifying offer and therefore did not get a draft pick or anything. Nice Job Dickie.
