Stop WHINING. If you can't beat the Yankees how do you expect to win the WS? Sounds like you don't have much confidence in your team

What's funny Rays fans are saying the same thing about the Yankees. Rays have to play the Cardinals while the Yankees get to play a weak team like the Reds.

Reds have the easier schedule. The Cardinals have to play us 15 times while we get 15 games against them. :)

To be fair no one expected the indians to be where they are right now. The schedule is what it is. Anytime you have a schedule of 162 games with 30 teams there are going to be inequities. This team just needs to focus on winning series like it did last year. Also note that the teams are going to give the reds their A game this year knowing the reds win their division last year.

So are we just allowing flat trolling like this these days?

the reds should have looked at that when they went 1-5 against the pirates and 2-5 against arizona that is their problem
