    Chapman really has taken his game to another level since adding the changeup to his regular repertoire.

    We're still good!


    3 games under .500 on this so called 'disaster season'.

    Phillies now with the 2nd worse record in MLB. Start the fire sale in Philadelphia.

    Every time I think the Reds are toast, they manage to show signs of life.

    Haven't given up yet.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Yessir. Everytime I think I'm out this season...they pull me back in!

    It's amazing how much better the Reds bullpen is with Chapman and Broxton in it. Not just for their talents, but Hoover and Ondrusek also improve too.

    The longer this team goes without viable production in LF, the more I put this season on Walt and not Price.
    Even though price has done some questionable things the season isn't on him. Injuries and a lack of moves from Walt gets my vote. I want to see this team at full strength and get a better feel on price as a manager. Maybe he won't be forced into so many changes in ideas.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Certainly happy they're hovering around .500, but considering the DL monster and the under-performing from several players, I think describing the season as somewhat disastrous is not a stretch. Having said that, still plenty of time to avoid calling the entire season a disaster.

    I think it's been a disappointment, but when I hear 'disaster season', I think of something like 2007 when the Reds on June 8th were 14 games under .500.


    Also by looking that up I found out Homer made his major league debut exactly 7 years ago today against the Indians. I don't recall that being brought up in today's broadcast, but I may have missed it.
