    Let's not forget the Reds were in third place after the all star break and then had a 10+ game winning streak. Cannot expect winning streaks like that.

    Don't agree. Seems like they care too much to me. Indifference is what a team hitting slump looks like.

    My guess is Todd Frazier is not producing at a level the Reds had hoped going into this season.

    I could care less what is preached early on in the game. Jay Bruce took a pitch that was a ball, like he should have. Had he swung and missed it, people would be complaining about him swinging at ball 1. Joey Votto is a better hitter than Jay Bruce. He can do things Jay and a lot of other guys can't.

    End of the day, you are complaining because a player didn't swing at a ball rather than complaining that the umpire called a ball a strike. Seems backwards doesn't it?

    Choo manages to get a hit against a leftie and the Reds have a runner on to start the ninth.

    Choo hits a Leftie.

    Has Hannahan really seen 7 pitches and has 2 k's and a double play?

    That's almost impossible to do I would think.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    No 11 game winning streaks last year.

    Facts are important.

    It was a great game thread for 7 innings, then the usual suspects show up and, boom, let the arguing begin. Sigh.

    ...and you're acting that ball was in the dirt. That's what seems odd.
