Seems like every season the Reds get hammered/overpowered by the offenses of the AL while also being limited offensively by much worse starting pitching. Why is this? The AL imo has been not as good as the NL the last few seasons but the Reds W-L record would not indicate this. Is it intimidation? Do they not matchup well? Cleveland is a terrible franchise and that mistake by the lake is a house of horrors for Cincinnati when other teams crush them. It's just very frustrating to see the Reds struggle against them since i hate the American League so much and it's a pride thing for the NL to beat the AL and the Reds just can't seem to do it.
