    Price and the pitching staff

    I was hoping for great things out of the Reds pitching staff this year under Price, but it actually has gotten worse. The only bright spots on the staff are Leake and Rhodes. Everyone else seems to have regressed from last year. Could Price be the problem or is there just a lack of talent?

    I think you are stretching. We are just in a bad patch with the starting rotation. We will be fine.

    I think Cueto has mental lapses, Price cant do much other than tell him what hes doing wrong.

    Price has done well imo, its just the talent some times slips up.

    I had no faith in Pole when it came to fixing any problem with a pitcher. He seemed lost as much as the pitcher at times.

    really? I think he has done well overall so far. Yeah, harang has been a disapointment, but he hasnt regressed this year- I think he has just started to lose it. Cueto's only issues seem to be mental IMO, thats on him and time/experience. Where do you get everyone else has gotten worse this season?

    Cordero, DRH, Masset, Bailey... Last year I thought the Starters would start to show improvement and I thought that the bullpen would continue to dominate. Neither has happened.
