Yeah, we've had a rough start this year. It's been painful, especially since so many thought we'd be contenders in the Central.
The guys we count on for offense came out of the gate barely limping and we've paid the price.
But it's not "unwatchable". It's still Reds baseball. There are a bunch of compelling stories on this team.
We've got two of the most exciting young pitchers in baseball. We're watching Joey Votto step up and claim his place in the starting lineup. Jay Bruce and Homer Bailey are on the horizon.
The way we've played the first month isn't the whole season. Yes, this start has made being "in contention" a long shot, but they're not "unwatchable".
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
