Yep agree 100%. Last weekend vs the Giants he led off with a slow chopper up the middle and the rookie Christian Arroyo was filling in for Crawford and bobbled it for an error. The Reds got 2 off Cueto that inning. They were unearned runs and Hamilton was 0-1 but that was absolutely bc Arroyo freaked out knowing Hamilton was running and got sped up.

Article on Reds defense. Jeff Sullivan has a podcast with Ben Lindbergh that I love called Effectively Wild.

Sadly, none of the young guys have shown that they can even make it through 3 innings. Not sure what can be done.

That has been a problem. That said, Romano is back off the DL and Reed through 7 strong innings last time out in Louisville. I would give Robert Stephenson a start.

Stephenson isn't going to make it as a starter. I feel pretty sure about that. I guess those other guys could get another shot. But it hasn't gone well up to this point. And honestly, can't believe I'm saying this, but Bonilla should get bumped before Arroyo. He's no good.

Jake,Stephenson may not make it as a starter but in my mind it is still way to early to give up on a guy with the raw stuff he possesses. I like what the reds are doing with him now. I think you'll see him in the rotation at some point in the season.

He is 24 with 8 GS. Very premature, his minor numbers were never stellar so hard to say what his ceiling is

Minors (5 seasons)
Minors 33 - 41 .446 3.94
