Re: Why we lost today
A team shouldn't be forced to overcome the incompetence of its manager on a daily basis. That's what the Reds are trying to do day in and day out. The game probably would have been over after 9 innings if Bruce was playing and Patterson wasn't making automatic first pitch outs at the top of the lineup all day. Freel probably would have been sufficient.
It also probably would have been over before 18 innings had the offense not had to go 9 entire innings without its biggest contributor.
