    Votto and Phillips had great Aprils. They're cooling off, Rolen is out, Gomes is tanking. The counted-on improvements from Bruce and Stubbs have not shown up.

    A spark is needed, and I don't see it on the roster.

    Hey! A base runner. Heisey walks. Good time for a bomb by Votto.

    Votto's on-base streak is in jeopardy.

    Right now, any pitcher with an ERA over 6 is looking forward to facing the Reds in order to get that number down.

    I'm not sure I call it bad baseball. It's not like they are throwing the ball around the diamond. They are just getting poor starting pitching and not getting timely hitting...

    They had one hit against a rule V draft pick. I call that bad baseball.
