    Bullpen

    I thought that the Reds Bullpen was a strength this year, but after further look, they have been terrible.

    56% Save rate - tied for 29th in ML
    22 Relief loses - 1st in ML

    YUCK! (Could this be the answer to all the trouble in 1 run games?)

    Re: Bullpen

    Biggest reason for this year's failures is the pitching mostly the eye popping walk rate mainly from the bullpen.

    Also batting with runners on, not just RISP which if I recall correctly is not as
    bad as everyone thinks compared to league average.

    And lastly...DUSTY FREAKIN' BAKER.

    Bullpen relies too much on defense. Too much contact and walks.
