    Simple fact

    The Reds do not have a lot of good players. 4 spots are automatic outs and the rotation has one real good pitcher and the pen has one stud. Sad facts are this team is playing about up to potential, a 70 win season should be expected. Likely Dusty will be fired, but do even the most anti Dusty Baker people think it will make this team contend? What am I missing?

    Plate approach. 1 BB, 10 Ks tonight. Hitting our way out of a slump, bro.

    The pitchers are not getting any run support.And the ones who usually do are 4th,or 5th starters who get run support,but end up blowing it.

    You don't think Lohse had anything to do with that. Not to mention, how many called strike 3 did the reds take tonight.

    I have to agree with you about the 4 hole hitter, but I think we got a pretty good pitching staff.

    Simple fact, Reds could very well be 6 games out of first by Thursday at about 5. Just think about that. 6 freaking games out already. If PDoc is right, Bob is going to put this team on the market this fall, as this team is dead in the water.

    Yeah he'll probably trade all the guys we have locked up through 2015 and beyond. I look for Votto, Bruce, Cueto, Phillips, Latos, Marshall, Cozart, Leake to be gone. Ridiculous.

    Of course. Lohse is absolutely on right tonight. But he wasn't the only pitcher they faced, and to only draw one walk? Pathetic.
