I'm not saying that the 2006 Cincinnati Reds are comparable to the 1990 team in terms of talent or potential, but those losing streaks didn't destroy the 1990 season. It turned out okay. Like Boiler said, it's a bit early to be discussing a housecleaning for this team.
The 1990 team played only two games over .500 from the first of June through the end of the regular season.
