Player-coach Paul Janish?
This team is beyond pathetic right now.
Harris, Cozart, Votto, Bruce and more in the 9th.
At this point I will just stop watching as I refuse to accept this and will follow my Pacers in the NBA till dusty is fired...
Batters just look confused. Like a Single-A club. Swinging at everything. Might be the most undisciplined hitting I have ever seen. Is this just a slump? Or Dusty's "aggressive" philosopy on hitting truly screwing them up. I think a lilttle of both but we are seeing serious regression over the past year plus. The 3 teams we have played have worked the counts amazingly well. The Reds? Not even a little bit except the first game of the year. Truly disgusting display and the coaches and team should be ashamed.
But it's early so who knows.
Quote from Dusty:
“It’s not lack of offense,” he said. “It’s lack of sleep. When you have a lack of offense is kind of like everybody lacks of offense. If somebody was hot and swinging real good you wouldn’t have the lack of offense.”
I'm not making this up.
It is an issue of softer pillows in the hotel.
we play the cards next. ouch. no way we can outscore them. were in trouble.
OK Rally time.

Willie Horton, get us going right!
I'm about done with ex-Reds being made coaches throughout the organization. Lets get bonafide coaching up here, not home town heroes.
