Very sad state of affairs these days.
    i've pointed this out a looooong time ago. Surprised people still watch this team. After failing and being completely exposed vs our hated rival Cleveland i was done

    Let’s not forget Vottos strikeout with a man on third and one out.
    Blasphemy!

    Okay this is not the first time you've used this "hated rival" line to describe The Cleveland Indians.


    Am I missing something here? Sure they are a "natural rival" due to being in the same state but I've never really felt any animosity toward that organization and I almost always root for them when they make the postseason.

    I can think of many, many teams that I'd consider a "hated rival" way more than The Indians.

    The other 3 RH guys I listed are clearly better options.

    Bell is a moron.
    Guys, Bell is not a moron. Neither is Johnson who participated in the decision. They knew the numbers everyone is citing. The Reds have a decision to make the next 10-15 days. Are they buyers and what are they buying? This was a test. A test of whether the 4 days rest was enough to reset Hernandez to what he was earlier in the season, our most dependable late inning reliever. Now they know. Now we all know. Hernandez is done. The rest didn’t help. He can’t be counted on. If they buy, it’s gotta be bullpen help.

    I'm not saying you're wrong but it's a bad way to "test" someone when you're looking up at 4 other teams in the standings.

    They need every single win they can get. They can't afford to be dropping games in order to "test" guys or to send messages to the front office, another theory that has been thrown out there.

    Letting Votto pitch would have been a better option.

    True, but this franchise has never been buyers and is starving for a post-all-star "attempt" at becoming aggressive.

    That they tried one more time to salvage an arm that was done (chasing past results) at the cost of destruction to fan and player momentum that the first half built, goes in line with what I, as a fan, have come to expect from current Ownership. Same old, same old. Collect the checks. Return crap in exchange.

    Seems like maybe a good situation to put your extreme ground ball pitcher in there instead of an extreme fly ball pitcher who has given up 10 runs in his last 5 appearances.

    Now I can subscribe to that.

    But there still is no guarantee. Hughes has been shaky lately, too.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
