Well here we go again. Losing to KC as I write. The playoff teams beat the teams they are supposed to beat! Dont expect to see us in the playoffs! Sorry negative but the Cubs, KC, come on. OH that all games were on the road! Seems like everybody beats the Cubs except the Reds.

Braves also beat the Yankees tonight and the Marlins have been playing well.

I know it's Kansas City, but, it's still Major League Baseball (barely). It's one game. They lose 2 of 3 or get swept... then we have a problem.

They took too long to get Milton out. When he losses it well.........

Just one game folks...

The Royals are hot right now...

And it doesn't look like it's going to do any damage in the standings.

This first game versus the Royals was a game simply frittered away. Forget for a moment Milton's mediocre effort or even the free run the Royals got off of the 2 inning opening walks by Standridge. They were ultimately beaten by a total lack of concentration and thinking all around in the top of the 9th. Why were they even pitching to Stairs with 2 outs and first base open? After Coffey served up a fat one to Brown that the Reds were lucky stayed in the yard; you'd think somebody would have had something to say to him before Stairs hit. If the coaching staff doesn't respect the opponents enough to give it their best effort, how can you expect the players to do so?

I can handle losses when we flat out get outplayed and are just overmatched on that night.

I hate starting pitchers giving up 4 run leads and closers getting 2 quick outs and then blowing it in the 9th. :bang:

Coffey was just trying to fit in with the rest of the pen ;)

It happens so fast.

Exactly...when he loses it, he ignited dynamite on the mound and it blows up in a hurry.

By the way, what do people think it would take to get Bob Wickman via trade? I'm worried the Indians won't want to deal with the Reds after the Brandon Phillips fleecing. But, I watched Wickman cruise through Pujols, Rolen, and Edmonds in the bottom of the 9th in St. Louis. That was enough for me.

I think that a bit unfair. The "team" played well tonight and has nothing to be embarassed about.

Chalk this one up to pitching (yes, it's part of the team, but not THE team)... not just the BP, but the starter as well.

Why on earth JN left Milton in long enough to get all those runs blows my mind. I must admit I was surprised that Coffey gave up the dinger, but hey, it happens... even to guys with an ERA under 3.

I hope Milton didn't hurt his knee again when running the bases, as was alluded to on TV.

Even the worst teams win a third of their games. It happens.

Contenders win games they should, more often than not.

Oh please, you'd think they just lost the final game in the World Series!

Milton had a bad night; so did Coffey. It happens... and thankfully it hasn't happened nearly as often as we all thought it would.

Be happy that the offense/defense was pretty darned good tonight!

I will add (as I have on two additional threads), that the TV broadcast mentioned he may have hurt his knee when running the bases. I didn't see it, but it could be an explanation of why Milton went down hill so fast.... no excuse for JN leaving him in there as long as he did though.

That's true, but losses to even the lowly Royals happen.

Every game like this that the Reds can win (instead of lose like tonight), it's just one fewer win they will need in September. It is true, however, that the best part of baseball is there is always tomorrow. And, they have Harang and Arroyo the next two nights...so that's a good thing.

I was watching the game my self.... It looked a little un-normal type of slide and such.. Nothing to huge thou... Once the Reds went up 5-1 I went ahead and starting cleaning and working on the car while listening to the game... Before I left.. Told Mom, I hope Milton didn't re-hurt his knee on that slide..

Couple innings of pitching and the lead was gone, and so was he... I had a feeling that slide wasn't the best thing for him.....

It seems wierd that a team that is only 1.5 games back in late June is getting beat up so bad by it's fans. I'm not saying we are heading to the World Series, or even the play offs, but as it stands we have a shot. Why don't we just see what happens?

While his performance (up until the Royals came back) was uneven, it seemed to me from where I was sitting that he was getting squeezed unbelievably. And we couldn't get the 1st base ump to call a strike when a pitch was appealed to save our life. That said, I thought pulling him should have come a couple of batters sooner. I was in the bleachers, so I couldn't see if they had anyone up earlier.

I've been a Reds fan all my life, and it seems they have always had trouble with the teams that stink, yet they can always beat the teams in 1st place.
This year especially. Pirates, Royals? But we sweep the Cardinals and Astros on the road?

I can remember the Reds having trouble in the 80's with those horrible Braves teams, from time to time.

Trust me this is irking me to no end this season. If they don't win the next two against the Royals then I am really going to begin to wonder and worry BIG time as well!!!!
