    Thanks for posting that. Lebron still hasn't won a championship while alienating the whole western world by thumbing his nose at Cleveland (ummm...well...not really a bad idea ) to go claim 4 or 5 championships. Well, it hasn't happened yet and hope it never does!!

    You made me feel better already.

    You're seeing the definition of a .500 team.

    If the Giants had injuries in their rotation, then I get the argument that "should have swept or won 3 of 4." But the Giants pitch, esp. at home. That is how they win games, esp. at home. That is how they managed a split and were in 3 of the 4 games. It doesn't matter much what they put out there offensively. They proved that last year, for an entire season and in the postseason. It is frustrating to watch them beat you, but that is their game. It's not enjoyable baseball, but in the NL West, it works.

    It is hard for me to understand this position. The Giants are winning close games, currently the Reds are not. Unprofessional? Because our relievers walk people? It needs fixed, but unprofessional? I think that is a bit of a dramatic of description of losing games late due to relievers walking guys, if that's even what you are referring to.

    I know it's completely random, but this team never seems to play well on national TV.

    It's a Cincinnati thing. The Bengals stink on national tv too, even more than they usually do.

    The 10-2 win Saturday was National TV.

    Not really. It was on a regional basis by FOX. I only got the first two innings of the Reds game only because the Cubs/Phils were in a rain delay. I never see the Reds when they are on FOX. I'm usually stuck with an AL or NL East game.

    Tired of hearing it's early.......about IL schedule. Excuses...mistakes. Just the excuse making losing attitude that seems to pervade the two teams I root for in Cincinnati, is frustrating for me.

    To the one who said they wonder what Votto is thinking.... I agree. I am glad I did not commit to this overrated bunch.

    Bray too. He gave up a bloop hit and a sac fly last night, but overall he's been VERY solid.

    Ok so if he uses Nick and he turns in one of his erratic performances....he should have used Logan, but then his gas can has been in full use lately ...so he should have used someone else.

    I can honestly say most, if not all of you would always blame the manager for who he uses and then when he blows up....say he should have used someone else. Besides Bray not being a LOOGY....this bullpen has been erratic... unreliable many times. The manatees in the South Park Cartoon Wars episode would have a better shot of picking a reliever to use than any manager out there...based on these relievers unreliability.
    Where is Price in all this? These guys have trouble throwing strikes but that has always been the managers fault....of course.

    I can split hairs too. This was a network telecast seen outside of hometown markets. So what's their record in those games? Geesh.
