    Just face it, We need better players

    Position players we need now......LF that can hit, 3B that can hit, C that can hit, CF that can hit, bench players that can hit. Please, anyone that can hit.

    Painful so far this year. I could hardly watch knowing we had no chance to score unless big 19 did something.

    Everyone jumping off the bandwagon already? Cmon guys! We're 8 games in!! We've played some of the best teams in the league, without being at full strength. 3-5 isn't the end of the world in a 162 game season.

    Yep. Team hitting slumps are hard to take during a season, especially when they happen to start of the season. That being said they happen to EVERY mlb team. They'll snap out of it. That's not to say this team is built perfectly, because they aren't. They aren't as bad as they've been playing though. Very encouraging the way Arroyo has pitched this year. That may be as encouraging to me as discouraging as the offense has been this season so far.

    Let's calm down. Our BAbip is .236. That simply won't last. It will get closer to the .297 it was last year.

    The 3-5 record doesnt bother me as much as all teams go thru stretches like this. I would feel alot better though about our imporvement chances if we had a good bench. Get a guy like Frazier and another good sub on the bench and I will feel a little better about it.

    I don't think the Angels last place and 2-5 record reflects much of anything any more than the Orioles first place 4-3 record does. The Pirates were in first fairly late in the season last year.

    I will grant that is has been a frustrating start, but there is no chance that Hannigan, Heisey, Rolen are going to hit sub-.200 the whole season. The team's OBP is .268, its average just above .200. This same team (basically) on the field the last two years has hit the ball pretty danged well. They will again. To me the encouraging thing is that the Reds are 3-5 DESPITE playing as poorly as they have.

    It's quite predictable that the Reds will win the World Series in three games.

    Would anyone argue that having Willie Harris, Wilson Valdez, and Miguel Cairo on the same roster is largely pointless? Why is 3 mediocre utility players better than one? I'd think anyone would be hard pressed to argue we need a talent influx for the bench.
