The Reds just didn't want it. Bronson Arroyo set the tone with his lame effort on Friday and it continued. They even tried to give Saturday's game away.
The Reds didn't want it? What do you want them to do? If Leake would have launched his glove in the dugout after being pulled or Arroyo took a bat to the water cooler, would that make you feel like they really did want it?
