    now 4th in the NL in runs scored -- with half the games played in a major hitters park - and I don't see signs of the offense coming alive soon
    But this has been an on going issue since 2011. Yes the pitching was not good in 2011...but the offense started becoming inconsistent and skittish at that time....continued into 2012, even more so...considering the ballpark they are in. Covered up by great pitching and defense. If Ludwick was Not Injured...would he make Cozart, Hanigan, Mez and Frazier hit any better?

    I just don't see how one can claim to accurately judge Mesoraco's hitting ability in the majors considering he has still not had even one extended look.
    "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."

    It is getting to a point for me where the club needs to do something just to shake things up a bit. It doesn't have to be a big move. Fire Jacoby and bring in Rudy Jaramillo. Move Choo to LF and bring up Hamilton for a couple of weeks. I don't know. The team is in such a funk that it seems like a small move might be a catalyst.

    I would have been willing to pay the higher prices for players earlier in the season. Getting another hitter in May, for example, would have helped a lot.

    At this point, I would be careful because the division race will be very tough for this team. They trail two good teams, are on a very long road trip, play under .500 ball on the road, and have a very serious problem on offense.

    Sometimes as a fan, you just have to step away. If you find yourself getting completely wrapped around the axle with the team, go do something else.

    They do keep playing the games.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    So glad Dusty decided to get into Choo's ear and tell him to be more aggressive. That's been a terrific success.

    bench => weak

    you can mix it like you want, you wonīt get a good lineup the way those guys perform at the moment
    Skip should get creative, mix things up....but we all know that ain't gonna happen with Dusto.
