It's not the bullpen. It's the terrible starting pitching.
So far on this homestand the Reds have played 9 games. They've gotten 2 quality starts. Think about that for a second. Honestly, I don't see how they stay over .500 much longer. I think this coming road trip puts them down to about .500, and it goes from there.
How about we trade for 5 starters, and 6 bullpen arms. Then we can be contenders.
