    A Sunday Special lineup playing like it has a plane to catch. (But the game would be over quicker if they made the plays.)

    This team and organizat5ion has me so frustrated as a lifelong Reds fan.

    I just recently moved to Tampa and the Rays just make the Reds look so incompetent. They do things that i wish the Reds do.

    They are innovative, do not fall in love with players and can develop/fix pitchers

    Glasnow was a mess with the Pirates like Stephenson and now Glasnow is throwing strikes and looking good.

    Agree and with that, the Reds should replace the whole coaching staff including the manager and maybe even their minor league staffs. This has to end now and not five years from now by drafting high and sending them to the majors unprepared.

    Frankly, I don't really care what they do anymore. I no longer have any long-term expectations for them. If they are successful somewhere down the road, good for them. On the other hand, if they continue down their current path, it's no skin off my nose.

    I'll continue to watch or listen, primarily for social reasons, as it's something to pass the time. But I find that I'm beginning to divest myself emotionally from the Reds much like I did with the Bengals in the 90's, and I never really returned to them. (I still refer to myself as a "Bengals fan", but it's in name only. I haven't watched a Bengals game in years.)

    91 losses.

    Need to go 2-3 on the homestand to match 2016 & 2017's record of 68-94.

    On this 10-game roadie, the team went 2-55 w/RISP. That's hard to do.

    Their record since they hung on to Matt Harvey for some "Positive Momentum" is 18-32.

    This is what happens when the guy you hire to run things happens to be somebody's nephew and whose resume consists of working for George Sonny Bush. Time for a change and the change needs to start at the top.

    This stretch of 4 consecutive 90-loss seasons is making the Lost Decade seem like halcyon days.

    I didn't watch a pitch of this entire 4 game series. My level of interest right now is about where it was after the 1994 strike. At least for the Reds, not the entirety of baseball. That reflects the level I'm at with this team and franchise. It's just a mess and I don't see much hope for the future either.
