I have been a reds fan for at least 39 years, so yes I've seen the good and the bad. What I'm sooo tired of is listening to people on this board complain about everything this team does. If this team makes a trade, the player isn't good enough, if they don't make a trade then walt's sitting on his wallet and doesn't have a clue. It's apparent to me that this team would have to go undefeated the rest of the season to please some of you. I hear people continually say how they aren't going to put a dime into this team but let them go on a 7 to 10 game win streak and they are the biggest reds fans that ever lived. I for one root for this team win or lose, it doesn't mean i don't get unhappy when they lose, but i don't give up on them when they do lose, and then pick them up again when they start winning. You people need to decide if you're true reds fans or not. As for Walt and Dusty, I do believe they are doing the best job they can. This team has desire, they now need the true reds fans to back them up.
