Here we go again: Nico, Rizzo, Javy, Willson, Schwarber (LF), Happ, Bote, Souza, Caratini
Not thrilled with Nico leading off when the greatest leadoff hitter in baseball history was available but whatever

bryant was supposedly gonna be in the lineup but he has left ring finger and wrist hurties.

I really think they could play .500 from here and would take the division.
But leave room for at least a week long slump due to bullpen implosion.

Don't get too giddy but...
One Quarter of the schedule is complete.
Pace is for a 48-12 record which when extrapolated to 162 games is about 130 win season.
Is it all downhill from here?
Cardinals at White Sox game tomorrow is possibly canceled per Sun-Times reporting that Bob Nightengale of USA Today and Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported the postponement.

Reds just lost in tough fashion to the Royals. Down 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, one out and rap into a 5-4-3 dp to end it.

So we keep Phegley ostensibly to get Caratini into lineup as DH and have a different backup C so we don't get caught in the exact situation we knowingly and avoidably put ourselves in tonight?

this game is now "bryant watch"...also will 4 runs be enough for kimbrel? gotta imagine he's due to get work even if it's not a save situation.

That one looked like it got all bone. Here's hoping it didn't go full Todd Hollandsworth.

Cleveland Game 2: KB (LF), Rizzo, Javy, Willson, Happ, JHey, Bote (3B), Caratini (DH), Kipnis
Schwarber was in initial lineup but removed due to a knee contusion - I imagine a result of the hard breaking ball which popped him in the knee last night.

Rea has been a very nice surprise so far. Hopefully he can keep it up this year and going forward. We have a few more years of team control.
