    The Reds just have too many outs in their lineup these days and the front office decided awhile back to let it ride. And it has.
    I don't think it's too late. Guys are just now becomng available. If they can add a guy it pushes Robinson out and upgrades now. There is still likely 5 to 6 weeks before we see Ludwick and he may have a set-back a la Marshall or Cueto. I don't think I'd count on anyone on the DL. I'd pursue good role players for the OF and pen and if they all come back, there is enough borderline talent on the roster to still have room for the new guys and the DL guys. Now that guys are out there. no need to wait. Doesn't need to be a star to be an upgrade. A good Denorfia type wouldn't cost much and would be a big upgrade. Ludwick needs rest and Choo should sit more often against RHP. Even if Ludwick returns, they need a guy who can play.

    Adding a Denorfia now is fine, but I think he costs more than you suggest, and I think the impact is limited. The time to make a move was in April or May. A World Series contender that loses its cleanup hitter needs to make a move sufficiently early to have a real effect.

    IMO the top organizations in sports, when losing an important player early, make sure they can cover that position. They don't say "it's too early," they act.

    The fan base, IMO, has been very kind to the Reds on this. A top FO doesn't say, well, nobody is available we'll wait until July 31. And the inaction has hurt the team IMO.

    Nice at bat from the mariners lead off hitter. I'm not sure what Cozart thinks when he sees something like that produce a run.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Damn, Latos already at 52 pitches - gonna be a tough game to win. Reds offense should put some crooked numbers up against bonderman. He is terrible.

    Bonderman isn't likely to shut anyone down. The Reds aren't out of anything this afternoon.

    I agree, that's why I don't think it's pathetic. People should realize baseball is not nfl football.

    Last couple of games, I thought Hanigan did look better. But that at bat was poor.

    Cards won.

    Reds offense is difficult to watch these days.
