    Wow, he is absolutely on fire right now.

    Huge power and great arm in the OF. One of the best nicknames going "The Punisher". The talk is that he has all the tools to become a star, and he's already hitting cleanup. But he'll be 26 years old next year. Strange path.

    Fun player to watch. I somehow snagged him in a keeper league last weekend for $2, hoping he's on my team for many years going forward.
    Aquino with 3 more home runs tonight to give him 7 in 9 games!

    9 and 4/9ths games technically - so you are both right.

    Aquino is the first player in MLB history to hit 8HR in his first 12 games.

    Wild ride
    After former Broncos quarterback Brian Griese sprained his ankle and said he was tripped on the stairs of his home by his golden retriever, Bella: “The dog stood up on his hind legs and gave him a push? You might want to get rid of that dog, or put him in the circus, one of the two.”

    Galvis or Iglesias - who's the better fantasy asset the rest of the way?

    I just dont see galvis supplanting Iglesias and while I am not a Peraza guy, I have to think the Reds will give him semi-regular at bats. Galvis plays half the time at most, the rest of the way.

    apparently Iglesias will be leaving via FA and Galvis is signed thru 2020.

    could be the former while the Reds pretend to contend, then Galvis after?

    it's the Reds, so....

    horrendous final week dropped me from a shot at 3rd to 6th

    As noted it's the Reds so anything could happen, why would they need to play Iglesias when Galvis has just been better? Seems odd to bench the player who has actually been the better player...

    is Iglesias's defense better?
