Reddick starting tonight according to Hinch on 790


He should start every game this series honestly


Until he strikes out every AB as usual

Guy had 1 HR and you're ready to place all your chips in that basket

We should play the better pitcher matchup

Tucker is a good sinker hitter and got one of the few hits against Tanaka, I'd rather see him start


I'm not saying that based on the homerun ... I'm saying that based on his postseason experience and that he's a better fielder than Tucker. Especially given tucker hasn't done anything this postseason offensively


Tucker has had a hit and a walk and nearly hit a HR

He hasn't gotten as much playing time as Reddick. Again, outside of the single HR Reddick hasn't shown anything we weren't already expecting.

Also, Tucker is just as good defensively if not better because he's quicker. He hasn't shown any problems in the field

You need to let this go. Right now Tucker is so amped up hes swinging at balls over his head. Not once but consistently. Saying he should be playing every AB is just nuts. AJ is playing matchups. Reddick had good numbers against Severino. He's 6-16 with 3 2B and a HR. He's also 3-18 with 2 HR against Tanaka.

At this point it's borderline obsessive/creepy if he isn't.

I never said every AB

I said that the pitching matchups should drive the decision. Reddick was a good match against Severino....Tucker did well against Tanaka.

Some posters here are for benching Tucker the entire series just because he struck out, not unlike most of Reddick's ABs

That should be a stat to track.

"Well Vern, Tucker up now with two outs, did you know he leads the league in near-home runs with 15 this year?"

Don't care if our RFs go 0-for the rest of the series. Reddick is way better on defense and can handle the crowd in RF.

to me thats a positive. He still has another HR left to hit for his other twin baby.

Look, I really don't dislike Tucker. I know he'll get some more opportunities in this postseason and I genuinely hope he comes through in a big way and vindicates your arguments for him. But his performances this postseason do not warrant him a start over Reddick tonight, and it would take something pretty egregious for that to change going forward IMO.

One of the only hard hits against Tanaka who shut out almost our entire lineup doesn't warrant a start?

I really don't think you guys are going to change each other's opinions on this one... as my dad would say, more power to you, but it seems like a wasted effort at this point.

One hard hit; however, other at-bats he was swinging at balls that were in orbit with the ISS. So, no, one hard hit ball doesn't warrant a start.

And Reddick's strikeouts were all a minute too late

So from an approach standpoint it's a wash

Okay. I'll let you guys in on a secret. I talked with Jeff L. the other day.

Tucker is the future. Reddick is the now.

Can you take the world series ticket talk to the world series ticket thread?

what else would you like to discuss? We can go over the pitching debate for the 100th time in the last 48 hours .... or speculate on wind patterns some more?
Let's discuss Kate Upton and Amy Crawford


best 1-2 punch in the game

My vote is Amy

Very hard question... from a production standpoint, probably identical, but we would have had zero expectations for him anyways... so it's a push.

I don't wish him Ill will but I am so grateful I don't have to watch his stupid gyro swing with his front shoulder completely opening up every AB.
