Nice win yesterday. Castillo 6 IP, solid. Hung on at the end. Suarez with a granny and Winker with his first, his first home run of the season.

So we are what 50+ games into the season and Winker has 1 home run. In 2018, can you have a corner outfielder not hit home runs? I'm not necessarily a huge home run guy, but Winker is on pace for less than 10, and that's just not dooable, especially in our ball park.

eastside_purple is infamous around these parts
Not when the cf adds nothing. The Reds outfield has been atrocious this year to date.

Wait a minute. You just posted the other day that -- because of Duvall's tendency to strike out too much -- that you would start Winker/Hamilton/Schebler on an everyday basis.
Now "that's just not dooable"?

What has changed in the last 2 days (other than Winker hit a home run, lol)?

I like the Adam Duvall story, part time outfielder turns slugger, makes the all star game, is in the home run derby. But he simply cannot put the bat on the ball enough. He's a good defensive out fielder, so if you want to make him a late game defensive replacement in left field, I"m good with that.
Even though you don't think that Winker is "dooable", you would lead him off -- everyday.
I thought you said corner outfielders needed to be home run hitters.

Riggleman has now cost the Reds 2 chances at wins in the last three games. For teams that don't have a hole lot of talent, you simply can't make those types of manager mistakes.
