The Reds have had some bad games this year.
But tonight they look like a defeated team. They can do nothing right. They can't hit at all. But worse, they look distracted and defeated.
Maybe they get back in this game, but either way, if I'm the owner, I start making changes tomorrow. This is not a product any Reds supporter is happy to watch.
its sad the only thing Reds fans can cheer for is a darn pizza because the team they want to cheer on to victories for cant even win..
I've seen this movie far too often with Bruce. He has a hall of fame month or 2 every year, and he looks like he should be in AA the other 4. It's inexcusable for a guy with his talent level and his MLB experience. He should be getting better at age 27, not staying the same or, as is the case this season, worse.
Well guys, this is depressing. I'm out...like a fat kid in dodgeball....goodnite!!!
Fired Dusty after last year's collapse (and other playoff collapses) and they are eating part of his contract still.
The Reds are spending a lot more dollars annually than their market size is.
This solid pitching staff is about to be purged after next season.
Attendance is down this year.
Just not a good year at all.

Are we talking about firing Walt?
I definitely agree that we need some changes on the field though, obviously.
As far as Walt goes, he did assemble a team that went to the playoffs 3 out of the last 4 years. I don't really fault GM's for playoff failures.
perfect pitch to swing at right down the middle of the plate. taken for strike 3!!! Man what is wrong with this teams Focus????
