    This team is worse than last year.

    Only two players (Choo and Votto) that know how to hit. The rest are just hackers. And defense is worse than last year.

    Never thought we have been World Series contenders. We are in the same boat as the Braves. Will have a great regular season record, but will struggle to hit come playoff time. Don't have enough players willing to put together a decent at bat.

    But when you play guys like Heisey instead of X. Paul you get what you get.

    Maybe we can add Mes to that list of players that will work a count, but still too early to officially add him.

    And after he takes 4 straight balls to get the walk, the next two batters get out on the first pitch. Westbrook was wild during his first start and could have potentially walked a ton of batters today. But we didn't let him.

    I donīt like to lose against the cardinals (I hate it), but pls donīt overreact...

    we have some player who swing and miss a lot and I would wish that they would start to make the pitcher work but we have a pretty good line up though.

    I hope the OP isn't a football fan. It would stink to have to wait a week to get this taste out of our mouths.

    The Reds play terribly in St Louis. It is what it is.

    Players change from year to year. If you noticed I said it was too early to add him, but he did have 2 walks today and we have only seen him in 2 games. Our biggest deficiency is inability to make pitchers work. We see too many less than 10 pitch innings.

    You must not have read the thread in ORG about making starters work. No need to worry. Dusty is gonna coach our boys up in that regard.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Not many. That's why we lost 3 series clinching games at home in one of biggest choke jobs of all time. Plenty of talent on this team, just not enough committment to actually becoming big time hitters.

    Really...worse? Where is the statistical analysis/ matrix to prove it? Didn't this team start 5-8 or something like that last year?

    Shouldn't the thread title read "last week" instead of "last year"?

    The rest is drama.
