    Re: I'm not sold on this team right now......

    I'm not sold on this team either, yesterday was an indicator of that and a flat out embarassment. I wasted a whole Sunday when I could have been watching the Talladega race, drove 8 hours and spent over 100.00 to watch that mess.

    Bases loaded, 1 out, and the LEAGUE MVP, and a gold-glover/All-Star can't drive in 1 run, 1 freakin run. Then when we have the lead the stupid bullpen was outdone by Pittsburgh's, hope they feel good knowing they have lost 2 of 3 to a AAA organization.

    Anyone who thinks attending a Reds game is a waste of money should reconsider attending Reds games. Win or lose.

    That's an interesting perspective. If Stubbs got a base hit to score 2 in the 9th, would that have made the 8 hour drive and $100 a worthwhile endeavor? Just wondering.

    Absolutely cause I only have a good time if Cincy wins, if they don't its a long quite drive home if they lose, along with a day of depression the following day.

    Re: I'm not sold on this team right now......

    I'm very excited that my team has been in first place all season.
    The pitching, outside of the first inning with Volq and the 8th with our set up guy, has been outstanding.
    The offense is better than last season and it was the top rated offense last season.
    Pondering injuries is impossible. Every team could do the same - what if Fielder went out for 50 games?
    They have had some very bad luck and are still in first place. The rest of the central is not as talented.
    I am glad they are off to a solid start and I think things will only get better.
    This is a very solid team that has been built to last - gotta love that.
    As for dropping 2 of 3 to Pitt - they have played well. The Pirates, as much as they have been berated over the last decade, have played two very solid games. It happens, which is ok, there are 160 other games to a season.
    Hope they win tonight and that Leake is scared straight. What a dopey move.

    Votto has been successful in 54.4% of his plate appearances this year (OBP of .544). That appearance just happened to fall in the 45.6% range. It happens.

    And once again, the Reds stink of GABP. Ridiculous. Nice work Wood.

    I can stomach the last few laps or a wreck, other then that, not really. Oddly, I have been to a ton of races across the country, but have fallen asleep more then watched. Love the pre-race festivities and culture behind it all, and do respect what the drivers are doing and how hard it really is, but the event itself bores the heck out of me, worse then tennis or golf on tv.

    Dang, man that's gotta be stressful. When I go to Reds games I have a great time, no matter what the score is. That's why I love baseball so much. I just love being out there on a nice day, relaxing, and watching my team get out there and play. Nothing better.

    Chapman needs to be sent down and turned into a starter since he can't go multiple days in a row, essentially ending his relief pitching career.

    Volquez is a problem. He's going to wear out our bullpen fast.

    The sky is falling. The sky is falling.

    Actually it isn't, but I see some concerns. The first month is always a look and see what you got month, and then they'll have to make some adjustments to fill weaknesses . Hopefully they do.

    This team needs a Solid Bull Pen arm.

    This team needs a Bonaifde Right Handed Power Hitter to take Rolens Clean Up slot in the lineup and allow Rolen to move down in order.

    It could also use Felix Hernadez for 1B/DH Yonder Alonso, C Devin Mesoraco, LHP Donnie Joseph, IF/OF Todd Frazier, SS Zach Cozart, LHP Matt Maloney
