One of the most disappointing things about the offensive struggles this year (IMO) is the Reds often look the same whether they're facing Johan Santana or someone completely ridiculous like Sowers tonight. It's as if the pitcher's skill level is totally irrelevant.
They've lost a week's worth of games this year to the following yokels: Maholm, Looper (twice ), Parra, Hochevar ( x infinity), Davies and now Sowers. And the games haven't even been competitive. Totally shut down.
