@reds_19_ I think he has to let them know a week or so after the World Series ends.

NL Central run output in the postseason: #Reds 0 Brewers 2 Cubs 1 Cardinals 16, but they were shut out in the deciding game.
Dick Williams "foresees" Bell and his staff coming back for 2021. #reds
#Reds offered Marcell Ozuna $50 million over three years, per report. MLB Network's Jon Heyman reported before he s… @BsballAndTurf25 BABIP is .167 today. Don't think you can advance bases on that. @mwblev0 They made the postseason for first time since 2013. Two of the best players (Senzel and Moustakas) missed… outs to go for #Reds to extend the season. Galvis, Barnhart, Akiyama due up in the 8th. @BsballAndTurf25 Only one was a hit. But when you only hit four balls hard and only one over 100, it's not bad luck.#Reds since the second: 1 hit, 10 strikeouts among 15 outs, 1 hard-hit ball. @BsballAndTurf25 You're right. Only 4 balls over 95: Votto 99 in the 6th, Moustakas 100 and Saurerez 98 in the 2nd… season is down to 9 outs. Moustakas, Winker, Senzel due up in the 7th.Castillo is done: 5 1/3 innings, 6 hits, 1 run. 1 walk, 7 strikeouts. 103 pitches. Runner at first is his. Sims in. #Reds down 1-0. @DaBigDaddyTaddy As I pointed out in earlier tweet.Braves take 1-0 lead in the fifth. Castillo up to 92 pitches. The 2-2 pitch to Acuna could have been called a str… @ekyCOMprof 3 times. @bbolge They hit .211 in the regular season. So this shouldn't be a total shock. 1-for-14 with RISP is a bit shocking.Marty Foster's strike zone is inconsistent. Senzel took two strikes that were called balls. Votto rung up on a ball… @cj2539 Or you could say hitting .211 and winning 31 is pretty good.Castillo strikes out Swanson with a 99 mph fastball. 0-0 after 2. #reds @DennisCAbrams @Matthew_Ryan4 I would not be surprised if this format is used next year. First two days have an NCAA Tournament feel. @cj2539 Won 31 despite him and lost 29 because of him, right?22 pitches so far for Anderson to get one out in the second. #Reds have runners at first and second.Braves starter Ian Anderson was picked third in the 2016 draft, one pick after Senzel. #redsESPN opened the broadcast by saying Bell shook up the lineup because the #Reds did not score yesterday.

A mistake by me trying to score a run. #redsGerat at-bat by Moustakas. 9-pitch walk. #redsOn to the 13th. #Reds pitchers have struck out 21. Castellanos, Votto, Suarez dues up.Golden Sombrero for Duvall. #redsGolf talk has distracted ARod. He didn't talk about Winker bunting. #Reds first and third, no outs.Frist postseason game to be scoreless through 11. #Reds pitchers have struck out 19. I know stat expert, but that seems like a lot. @MdmattMd It's not a normal year. And this game has been kind of fun to watch. Now, go back to yelling at that cloud.Sims comes up big after leadoff walk. 0-0 going to the 11th #reds @caplondon Was used to save innings in the regular season, Not a factor in postseason.Braves have one sac bunt this year. #redsSims will face Duvall, the guy the #Reds traded to Atlanta for him to start the 10th.We're going to extras. Iglesias has thrown 26 pitches. If the #Reds get the lead, I'd bet he wants to pitch the 10th. @sle99 Iglesias has an 0.56 ERA in his last 16 games, and Acuna hit a ball 111 mph off Bauer his last time up.Raisel Iglesias was down 3-0 to Ronald Acuña Jr. and struck him out. First time that's happened to Acuña this seaso…
Retweeted by John FayBauer: 7 2/3 innings, 2 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 12 Ks. 103, 73. Iglesias in. #redsThe runner-on-second rule for extra innings is not being used in the postseason, if you're wondering. #redsWe'll have to wait till after the game to find out what the #Reds were trying to do there. Farmer was in no man's land. Double steal? @dougdirt24 Williams had the highest WAR among relievers in the NL at 1.4, according to Iglesias was second at 1.1.Hitters were 3-for-35 (.086) vs. Bauer with runners in scoring position this year. Just showed why. #Reds @realjohnotto2 Albies ball in the first was changed to an error.Bauer through 5: 1 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 8 strikeouts, 68 pitches, 47 strikes. 0-0 game. #redsBig difference between between Bauer and Fried: Bauer averaged 105.9 pitches per start; Fried averaged 81.7. So the… looks sharp, locked in. Fried has only given up two homers all year. That blown opportunity in the first was large. #redsThat's a nice play by Castellanos, especially with the shadows. #Reds @Cincyfan78 @bigstuuuu Think Bell is going with the Senzel's upside -- speed, power. But he's really struggled. And… @bigstuuuu Hitting .190 vs. left-handers#Reds roster: DeSclafani, Romano off.

Bauer will start Game 1, Castillo will start Game 2. Gray will start Game 3 if necessary. #redsSuarez: "We did it for all of the city of Cincinnati. . .

If this holds, #Reds can start DeSclafani on Sunday and save Bauer for Game 1 of the playoffs.Moustakas coming up big at the right time. Second home run of the night makes it 5-2. #Reds @stenten He warmed up Monday after Nate Jones gave up the 2-run homer.Great job by Iglesias. But he threw 24 pitches. #Reds lead 4-2 after 8.You have to wonder about Archie Bradley's availability. He wasn't used Tuesday against the Brewers when Antone pitched two innings. #redsNice performance for Lorenzen: 3.1 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts. Runner on second is his. Garrett in. So… @Jamieblog This is a video of Jamie after a strike at Stump's Lane. @landdon They could pass the Cardinals and get the seed for finishing second in the Central. @PaineInTheNeck Single, went to second on the throw.
