Re: I'm Getting Tired of the Animosity....
I disagree with your entire premise, which is the Reds aren't that good,and we ought to be happy with what we've got. The Reds match up very well position by position with every team in the division, with clear superiority over Pitsburgh, Houston, and St. Louis in almost every postion except closer.
I don't think people are unrealistic or fickle when they question a manager's decisions. The Manager takes over strategy toward the end of the game, and you've got to wonder why Weathers and Stanton get so many choice situations to blow when guys that have been lights out like Santos are hidden. Coffee looked to have pretty good stuff last night, and was in a groove. Stanton really hadn't pitched in a while. So you take out the pitcher in a grove and put in a cold arm, who triggered a loss.
This team should be one or two games above .500, and managerial decisions are directly responsible.
