    I Can't Take It Anymore!!!

    the way these guys are losing night after night is just becoming unbearable. they should be about 10 games over .500 right now and instead they're 4 games under. it is amazing how consistent this bullpen is at blowing games. there are probably many threads about this, but i just needed to fume, it's getting so frustrating to watch this game after game! it would be one thing if this team were being outmatched every night because they weren't any good, but these are all games they should be winning.

    Hate to say it, but I'm starting to think they actually aren't any good. Very difficult for a team to win with two good starters, one consistent hitter, and no bullpen stoppers. Very difficult.

    uuummm. This is a 500 ballclub. They could be a bit better than that. They could be a bit worse.

    Everything could fall into place and they could win 92 ballgames. The wheels could just fall off and they only win 70.

    What did you think they had? A really good team? I do think it's a better team than they had last year, but...well, that wasn't a good team either now, was it?

    Can't argue with you about the bully, but check out the other thread on the starters. The last four games they've been worse!

    There's 29 other franchises. If it's as awful to be a Reds' fan as you say, choose one of them.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    i realize i already commented on this, but this post just rubs me wrong. that is whats wrong with sports fans, when things get bad and they switch to a different team. why even follow a sport if you're going to do that? it's pointless. maybe you should just follow no one throughout the season and decide who you like after the world series every year? that is one of the most asinine posts i've ever read. does it mean that because i'm frustrated that they aren't playing well i'm not a reds fan, or shouldn't be? i certainly don't think so.

    This is the kind of smart alec, pompous post that does not belong on a Message Board like this one. People should be allowed to vent and express their opinions without immediately jumping in with a sermonette. Paintmered, I usually enjoy your posts, but this one is out of line...by a long shot.

    Yes, you are right and I apologize.

    I guess I've seen too many people around here make statements like "I can't take it anymore". If being a Reds fan produces so much emotional strain in your life, there are alternatives out there. I don't like to see the Reds lose as much as anyone out there. But it's still just a game and I'm still going to find enjoyment in a 60-win ballclub. I'm going to find enjoyment in watching college baseball, little league or even intramural softball.

    Ohio winters are too long to spend the season griping about the Reds. It doesn't mean you can't criticize. Shoot, this would be a boring place if all we did was praise, even in losing efforts. But please try to find some joy in the fact that baseball is being played. November will be here before we know it and we will all be longing for spring training to begin again.

    Maybe some year we'll actually try and sign some quality pitchers instead of the usual also-rans, projects and nobody's.

    The Reds have more than two good starters and most of the time, the offense isn't the problem. In fact, offense wasn't the problem tonight.
