    Were will the Reds be in the standings on Aug. 4th?

    I say they will be at least 7 games back. Mark it down. I hope I'm wrong but I'm not. No trades will be made and are offense will continue to be terrible. The bullpen is going backwards. The managing is awful. Dusty has no idea how to put a lineup on a card or manage a pitching staff.

    This team needs 2 things to contend next year because watch what I'm telling you this year is over.
    1) a new manager
    2) someone to hit behind Votto

    Move Phillips to leadoff and put Cozart in the 2 hole were he belongs. Votto 3rd and someone behind him to protect him. Get these 2 things and the Reds are a championship team.

    What's wrong with you? Talk about someone with a glass is completely empty philosophy. How is the bullpen going backwards? Why is the managing awful? How can you win over 1500 games and not know how to put a lineup together or manage a pitching staff? Who said Cozart belongs in the 2 hole?

    A very good question. And yet, somehow, Dusty manages to pull it off.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    I think most of the success Dusty's teams have had are in spite of his efforts not because of his efforts.

    So, give you a manager that does not win games, but does things the way you like and you will be happy?

    yep 0-27 and counting Stubbs deserves as much time as he needs to prove he isnt a liability batting 2nd since Dusty is afraid to make him lose his position..

    If they lose tonight Dusty will be under .500 over the last 10 seasons.

    Dusty just doesn't have much to work with. Votto and Phillips (occasionally) are the only consistent hitters on the whole team. The offense is extremely weak (if you bet this team you'd make a ton betting the under). If Walt doesn't get a center fielder this team will be 5-10 games out by 8/4.
