    ten days ago I thought this team was peaking at the perfect time. Short peak...

    Reds are developing too much of a record of failing in games like these, including at home. And tonight, so far, they look like a defeated team. Obviously, just based on watching the game from home.

    Not blaming Baker, but something is going to have to change soon. Too much talent for this.

    They had guys to trade, they don't now, unless they're rebuilding. And, there's no $$ left to acquire anyone new, per the norm here, unless we all start buying stock piles of fruit en masse.

    I don't hate Byrd. But he and Morneau are not difference making bats, and this Pirates offense still sucks. Sorry.

    I call it as I see it.

    This team has had one hot streak this season: May. They haven't sustained anything like a hot streak since.

    Natives are getting restless and Pirate fans are getting rowdy...

    I had to get up from my seat - must have jumped up 20 times to let people pass during play. Ugh. Plus the cell coverage is terrible in that section. Definitely going to suggest upper level next year for the social media games - cheaper and I can at least get to watch the game.

    Where is that team that took 3 of 4 from the Cardinals and swept the Dodgers?

    After following the game and this team for decades, the throwaway phrase "anything can happen" takes on more meaning. Because it can. All bets off Tuesday. Lots of smart people in the game talk about how critical it is to just get into the dance. Once you do, as we have, you just don't know. Keeping the faith is good. It's why I'll do two long round trips by car to PNC this year within two weeks.

    We've won 5 World Series. While of course I know not in 24 years (and lost decade, etc.), the point is that this team has a winning legacy.

    This year, we'll finish with something north of 90 wins and around 20 over .500. Whatever one might argue about streaks, that's a very good year.

    Ya know, losing sucks.


    But I can swallow it a little easier if the team just played/acted/showed that they gave a.

    I think the Reds are trying. And I think it's bush to boo the home team. They're just a bat or two short.
