    This team is just asleep at the wheel.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Not looking like a playoff team fighting for best record in all baseball
    Is it "next season" yet?

    The Braves may end up passing us in wins.

    I think they just hit the curb, then a mailbox, and now a construction zone and still sleeping.

    After losing 2 of 3 to a AAA Astros team, I pretty much had the same opinion.

    I think it's just a stretch that every team goes through... geesh. Still a playoff team, everyone chill out.

    Reds hitters need to be patient because this umpire has such a small strike zone.

    That was one disgusting half inning.

    yeah, I'm not overly concerned yet, but they do need to start looking like they can win in October again before it's too late.

    You say that a little bit like it's disgraceful. The Braves have the fourth-most wins in baseball and are playing really well. They could still potentially catch up with the Nats too.

    Do they think they have it all rapped up and can just coast home? Keep playing like this they may just open things back up.

    As hot as Bruce is, Wandy seems to own him for his career.
