I don't mind losing. I hate rampant losing of games you should win. Reds have at least - at the very least - 10 losses in games that they should have won. That's baseball, yea, but it's also not championship baseball.
Time for this team to take the next step already. The window won't be open forever.
It got so bad...Vin Scully sat him down on the Dodger Pre-Game show and tried to calm him down and make him feel better. I even felt sorry for him...and I hated the Dodgers, even out here in LA.
Votto's glove is definitely lacking this year, wasn't there another superstar caliber guy who randomly had a bad year defensively several years ago? Maybe I'm making it up, but I feel like it was Pujols or somebody who one year just sucked on defense before going back to being good again.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
Sneakers is a great movie
This game was NOT on Votto. Blown save on Chapman. They happen. Tough break. But outside of 1 or 2 plays, the Reds played one helluva game tonight. Bruce & Leake were lights out. Just faced a tough pitcher and a good team...get 'em tomorrow.

This hurts. Seriously. But as long as the Rangers hold on and beat the dickeybirds, I'll be ok.
I keep telling myself it's just a game. Not all that important in the realities of life you know.
Losing games like this hurts. If they lose tomorrow, Bob needs to give the boys the company credit card and let them loose on the bars. They can recover on Monday and should be ready to pay homage to 1990 and absolutely annihilate the A's.
