    Tanking is when you bring in bad players in hopes that you are bad. I don't believe that's what the Reds have been doing.
    I don't know, the bullpen and bench were pretty horrible the previous two years.
    But I'm going to try to let it go.

    Anyway, I don't want to hijack this game thread, so let's get back to today's game. Bonilla gave an outstanding effort today. He really stepped up when the team needed him. Definitely would be the Star Of The Game if Nux were still around.

It was 1998 before I was all the way back.)

    Anyway, like I said, I'm trying to come around. But it will take time.
    Klu, I'm in the same situation. I'm trying to be positive. I finally spent the whole thread (save the last two innings)last night, and tried to stay positive and I think I succeded. Only one snark comment from Phil , and went to bed before the loss. Maybe that's the best way to do a game thread?

    Considering all the handwringing going on here about Bonilla's start (and the "lack of planning" by the Reds FO), I think a bunch of fans should be frying up some crow today for lunch. I thought he did fantastic yesterday. Not the end result we wanted, but you certainly can't put any fault on Bonilla's effort. Great job.
