    Problem is, I think we're done scoring today.

    We're all fans of a small-market team who may have sacrificed the future for the immediate present by signing our marquee players to big dollar deals and dealt off most of our minor league talent for peripheral pieces, ostensibly to build a team capable of winning the world series.

    Despite the fact that this is far from a bad team, everyone can see that this bunch, as presently constructed, is not winning a world series and is no lock to even make the playoffs, considering we are running third in our own division at the ASB. And we don't know when or if Ludwick and Cueto are coming back, and we don't have a lot to offer other teams in deals to fix these problems.

    It's not been often since 1990 that Reds fans have had reasonable cause for high expectations. And let's face it - our window of opportunity may be small. I don't blame anyone for being a bit upset about the present state of the union, so to say.

    Since you appear to be Captain Obvious today, what with the keen observation that runs are necessary to win ballgames, allow me to point out the fact that I never claimed to speak for anyone else.

    No people are not distraught because the Reds are on pace to win a "whole bunch of games."

    They are unhappy because the Reds won 97 last year so the possibility of 90-91 seems like a step backward.

    They are unhappy because they thought the Reds were better than the Bucs and Cards, and they haven't been.

    They are also unhappy with the performance of certain home grown players who they hoped would do well this year and haven't, at least offensively.

    So there are some things people thought would be much better.

    They were 11 games over back in May when we swept the Mets. Since then its been sort of dismal. Bottom line is some things about this team deserve praise and some things deserve criticism. They may be over .500 but that doesn't prevent criticism when its warranted.
