Donald Trump is a raging narcissist. A.J. can’t catch any more. Some things are beyond obvious.
A.J. mercifully won’t be in there tonight. Instead, Anthony Recker gets his second straight start. He’ll catch Wisler, who needs a good outing to get on track for the second half. Cincy’s goofy steamboat-themed ballpark is not the idea place to do that, but we shall see what happens.
The local nine’s starters: Beckham, Garcia, Freddie, Markakis, Francoeur, Inciarte, Recker, Aybar, Wisler.
I understand trying to find ABs for Beckham. He was killing the ball when he got hurt. But why not put him at short, bench Aybar and play Peterson?
