    Votto extends his streak with an RBI single and we are now a gapper away from a walkoff.

    Clutch hit by Votto.

    I might bunt Phillips if the defense plays back.

    They need to pick it up. Everywhere.
    My defense is "while the results are disappointing, a number of stats support the idea that this is not a team that is going to be losing at this rate or in this fashion for the brunt of a 162 game season."

    Right now, it feels like every ball in play by the opponents is falling for a hit, every fly ball leaves the yard, and every pitcher the Reds see is a world beater. Conversely, from the Reds' perspective, it feels like every fly ball is hit to the wall, every line drive is right at someone, and every pitcher the Reds have who had success last year is suddenly awful.

    As I said before, I am extremely frustrated. I wake up in the morning, check to see what the pitching matchup is, and seem to lose my optimism after the first two innings on most nights. However, I don't think this is a team that will continue that trend long-term, and the stats support my feelings.
