    Stephenson is utterly useless as a baseball player (not saying he's a terrible human being).

    I give up on our young pitchers until we find a person who has a plan to develop them!

    This is a rare occasion where I actually empathized with Thom's rant.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Let's not let the pitiful pitching distract from the fact that the offense the whole game has been two Barnhart singles and a Gennett walk. And the horrible defense, this entire series, to boot.

    What a clownshow.

    Good inning from Reed though, put my man in the rotation.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    It’s that moment the FO was speaking of. Hard not to get caught up in it! Woo hoo
    So glad no major moves were made to this team that’s lost 90 4 years in a row. Would’ve hated to see a shakeup.

    Offense went in the tank once Winker and Schebler hit the DL. I'm not saying those two are magical keys, but that seemed to be the timing.

    On the bright side, Bailey's 2018 ERA went down today. Dropping from 6.21 to 6.17.

    I haven't watched this weekend. You can blame Homer (who will be a starter as long as he has that contract), but truth is, one run would have cost them the game. Truth is, the lack of Votto in the lineup hurts tremendously along with a healthy Schebler, and Duvall driving in runs (I know that's not going to be popular). Batting Barnhardt so high in the order and depending on Billy making great making great plays is really foolhardy. On the pitching front, only Matt Harvey (a proven starter even if flawed) and Disco could be counted on to not dig a hole the emasculated offense couldn't overcome the 3, 4, 5 run deficits. And even they failed. I don't know the answer, but trotting out these starters, which could were merely "suspects" instead of prospects, ain't working. More of the same after how many years? If they rehire Riggleman, it's going to be worse than you can imagine.

    I guess when you're paying a guy $21,000,000 a year, you want to be very, very sure you've squeezed everything out of him you can before tossing to the scrap heap.
