    Lately these games all seem the same. Reds get a lead. Reds offense other than Votto goes to sleep. Reds starter wears down. Opposition ties it up.

    Reds win some and lose some, but the pattens seems the same.

    Yes, it's obviously all Latos' fault. Worst trade in Reds history.

    Seems like we score all our runs early. Like I said after the 1st we left a couple runs on the bases

    I don't think the offense goes to sleep other than Votto, I think the offense just isn't very good other than Votto.

    If that's his "eating up a fastball", he'll starve himself out of the majors.

    That would be a routine DP ball half the time.

    It's the offense guys. Not the pitching. Score 4 early and have as many chances to add more as they've had it's no wonder they are tied. This offense is terrible

    Marshall has really worked a lot. And you aren't going to bring in Marshall to face Cabrera. You might have begun the inning with Marshall, but I'm not even sure he is available tonight.

    Too bad about the hit. Arredondo is usually pretty stingy with the hits, his problem is usually walks.

    Latos' outing was good. Glad to see the ground balls. Hope that is a trend that will continue

    H hit it square and hard. No one gets that unless they're playing right on the bag

    This team needs a hitter. plain and simpleThe problem is that were going to have to wait until the deadline to get that hitter IMO

    Yep, that's exactly what I was saying. Even worse than the Josh Hamilton and Frank Robinson trades. (Not to mention Paul Konerko.)

    Or not. Reach much? All I was saying, basically, is Latos has been a slight disappointment. Care to disagree? I'm here.

    Votto makes an out. Unusual.

    I don't see the point in piling on Latos like you have, especially since anyone with eyes can tell he looked really good tonight.

    Pop foul to Fielder near the dugout. 2 down.
