  1. I’m ready for Hamilton. He may be 250 AAA at-bats away from being ready, but Cincinnati needs him in a platoon with Choo, in various late-inning situations, and for the post-season. Post All-Star, he’s .302/.343/.395, and has only struck out 3 of his last 41 ABs. His splits against lefties aren’t very good, although he slugs 65 points higher than Choo v. lefties, but I haven’t seen a breakdown month-by-month on that. I understand that he is a natural RH hitter and has been taught to switch-hit; he obviously has hit more left-handed than right as a switch-hitter.

    And this team needs an infusion of energy.

    Who to send down? Paul, or Ondrusek.

  2. I see Reynolds pitched last night. Same night as Cingrani. With Cingrani’s injury, if he misses a start or more, that matches up well for Reynolds to be his replacement, if needed.
    No mas Pedro.
    Time is now to bring up BHam. To h*ll with his MLB service clock and potential free agency that won’t come until the year 2020. “All in” means ALL in. Call him up before Sept. 1.

  3. BHam has an OPS .100 better post versus pre ASG. Regardless he still isn’t hitting for much power or pushing his OBP.

    He is improving but I don’t think there is any reason not to let him complete his season in AAA and be a pinch runner and rare PH guy for this club when rosters expand.

  4. I would be ok with Simon getting a start. That guy has done a great job for us

  5. I don’t think Reynolds is on the 40 man, so there would have to be a move for him to make a start.
