Re: Will the Reds avoid 100 losses? If so, how?
If losing 100 games means they get ride of Hatty, Conine, Weathers, Santos, and maybe Dunn and go with younger versions then I am fine with that. I would much rather lose with the likes of McBeth, Burton, Count, and Salmon pitching in relief (I am not sold on Coffey and probably never will be). I want to see and infield of Votto, Phillips, Gonzo and Encarnacion play every day the rest of the year. I want to see Narron fired and bring in a young fiery manager who has something to prove. If 100 loses lead to a better team next year and the year after than I am all for it. What I do not want to happen is the reds to finish off the year about 10 games over .500, save Narron's job and put the thought in management's mind that this team can compete next season.
