    Things starting to unravel a bit?

    Phillips mri
    Bailey on hold
    bullpen a disaster
    starting pitching struggling
    starting to lose these 3 and 4 game series
    hanigan on dl
    Leake's innings a concern
    Rolen old and can't play every day


    I looked outside and the sky was falling too.

    It's just frustrating. Had to vent.

    The bullpen will be Walt's biggest challenge the rest of the season. He will have to try and find reliable arms and resonable costs.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Agreed^ i think BP is fine.

    Starting pitching will be fine in a month or so when volquez makes his return.

    Bullpen needs reworked badly.

    The sky is not falling, and even if the Reds DID have to play in a cloudy stadium, you know Gomes is going to be out there giving it his all. See that trail of fog running in circles around home plate? That's Gomes tightening up his gloves as he walks around talking to himself about the last pitch.

    If this is related to the cramp he got in Pittsburgh then I'm not too worried. The starting pitching has been fine.

    starting pitching struggling it's been worse
    starting to lose these 3 and 4 game series we can't win all of them
    hanigan on dl he'll back back soon
    Leake's innings a concern Dusty will monitor that
    Rolen old and can't play every day but we knew this, and when he does play he RAKES

    I'm not one to overemphasize any one string of games in a 162-game schedule, but we would do well to tread water during the upcoming west coast swing and then do the same with the 11-game road trip just prior to All Star break.

    Given the state of the bullpen and our injury status, I will be feeling pretty good if we can get to the break in or near first place.

    PS: It should be noted that the awesome month of May was built almost entirely on the backs of the NL Central

    Yeah, things are a concern, with main concern being in the bullpen. BUT, as Reds fans, we haven't seen a season like this for quite awhile. Being 1 1/2 games up in mid-June is a major plus and let's enjoy this thing and ride it out as long as we can (hopefully into the playoffs and beyond). GO REDS!

    That's not a bad thing.

    I expect this team to be something like 8-7 the rest of the month. Winning two of three in the SEA, OAK, CLE series and dropping two of three in the LAD, and PHI series.

    My family down in Kentucky just told me that Gomes is a favorite there. (they love his style of play). My aunt has told me that I should call my cousin (I have only seen her at family events, and have never called her on the phone), she LOVES the Reds. I was told today that one day some of the family were watching a Reds game, and my cousin mentioned all the ticks that Gomes has at the plate.

    If changes are made in our bullpen id be much more optimistic about this month. But I am hoping BP is ok and our offense can carry us into the W column for now. We did take 2 of 3 from LA last time around no reason we cant do it again.

    Bailey being on hold is not that big since Lecure has stepped in and done an equal to if not better job.

    phillips issue could be HUGE

    Bullpen has been bad since April and yet we continue to hold on

    How has starting pitching struggled?

    We split with SF and yes lost to KC, but St. Louis was swepted by LA and lost 2 out of 3 to the lowly Dbacks.

    Leake's innings have always been a concern

    We knew Rolen couldn't give us 162 games, if we get in the 140's we will be fine.
