Re: If the Reds had a bullpen.........
It is sad to think about where this team would be with a decent bullpen. But then I started to think about it and really this team might only be 5-7 games better than it is now. So instead of 16 games under .500 they would be 11 games under .500. I have no idea what it is but there is just something about this team that doesn't click this year. They have some talent but they just can't win games. If they pitch, they can't hit; if they hit, they can't pitch; if the starter does well, the bullpen sucks; if the starters suck, the bullpen does well. And if everything aligns, they find some way to screw it up. IMO even if they had a bullpen, they are a losing team anyway..
