no walt says he is happy with shortstop and if course stubbs will break the record for fanning, and of course volquez is a true ace
agree. But I do think they can get to 1st but not until they make a few changes.
+cozart, sappelt, hermidia
-renteria, gomes, lewis
Yeah Hermida with his lifetime one Reds hit is the answer.
ROLL TIDE ROLL!!
I don't see the Reds getting any closer to the Brewers anytime soon. The Brewers are about to catch fire & then it will be to late to catch them. Not worried about Cards & Pirates.
My problem is, I don't want to just MAKE the playoffs. I want to get to the World Series.
I don't feel like management has the same objective.

However, the Reds also need pitching. Volquez is not going to figure it out. He needs to go to AAA for the rest of the year and stay there.
I would love to see the Reds make a play at Anibal Sanchez from the Marlins or Michael Pineda from the Mariners or Scott Baker from the Twins. These pitchers probably wouldn't command a fortune and they could really help turn this staff around.
I wish that the Reds could get their **** figured out....we have a good offense, but we could make it better....
The Mariners would never trade away their prized 22 year old flame thrower. Sanchez might be a nice addition however. I do not understand the reluctancy to at least try something different. Going into this season we knew LF and SS was a huge question mark. For the most part these two positions have failed us. Whats the hurt in trying Cozart and Hermida/Sappelt/Alonso out in LF? I think they are putting off a vibe of being content where we are in the standings and for a organization clammering to have more fans in the stands I would probably put off a want to win attitude. Show the fans you want to win. Make changes when they are obviously neccessary.
In the last four games on the trip the Reds face:
