A couple days ago when I looked, Gray was tied for the top spot in sacrifices with 12, the 3 others in the top 5 who weren't position players were all Dodgers.

No doubt....and I will talk up Nick Saban to anyone....but refusing to play even 1 legit non-conference team and the SEC only playing 8 conference games is not good for the game. Clemson has a mostly soft schedule, but at least they play TA&M this year....Georgia plays Notre Dame...Oklahoma plays 9 conference games plus a good Houston team and a mediocre PAC12 team, LSU plays Texas....Florida plays Miami and FSU. Then there is Alabama....playing 8 conference games and Duke on a down year (hard to write that with a straight face, but they had been mediocre .500 team in recent years), NMSU (a bad G5 team), Southern Miss (a bad G5 team), and the Catamounts of Western Carolina (a FCS team).

The Reds have:
1) "The Punisher" for a clean-up hitter, who after a month in MLB is being intentionally walked instead of a guy with 39 home runs who would have put the DP in order.
2) "The Punished" for a closer with an exorbitant number of blown saves and losses.

Um what is "Going for it? 4th place with the same record as 2014 W-76/ L-86. Run diff has not shown more wins than losses. Need to address this in the off season, because if somehow they get last place below the Pirates who have kicked the Reds butt this year, that is not going for it unless going for it is called 4th place and the FO bragging how they got the team out if last place.wow. im impressed!

Here in St. Louis, they're very spoiled and ***** if they're not in first place on June 6. "An awful season, we're doomed." Not so much the good fans they are made out to be.

It ain't about the fans. Who cares? It's about an organization that figures out how to win games. They have it, the Reds don't. Simple.
