I thought that the Reds Bullpen was a strength this year, but after further look, they have been terrible.

56% Save rate - tied for 29th in ML
22 Relief loses - 1st in ML

YUCK! (Could this be the answer to all the trouble in 1 run games?)

Yep! and clutch hitting

Biggest reason for this year's failures is the pitching mostly the eye popping walk rate mainly from the bullpen.

Also batting with runners on, not just RISP which if I recall correctly is not as
bad as everyone thinks compared to league average.

Bullpen relies too much on defense. Too much contact and walks.
