one positive note on Lorenzen's 2 outings and Iglesias's 1 outing is they all started off really bad, but once they gave up the HR, they were in full control the rest of the outing.....still sucks, but it could just be getting over those initial nerves early in the season?

Of course. The pressure was off once they got jacked.

With the state of the Reds bullpen, Antone is showing some stuff. I had no idea he threw so hard. I figured he’d be a soft tosser.

The last time the Reds made the playoffs they gave up a perfect game in the series opener en route to a sweep.

In many ways, the fact that they’re terrible is a blessing in disguise. We won’t have to go through that again.

I think that in addition to walk up music, they should have sit down music. Every time the Reds strike out and take that walk back to the dugout they can play their designated song. Of course, there probably isn't enough money in the budget this year to pay the rights for the songs every time a Red strikes out and takes this walk of shame.

Bell would take him out.

That’s not nearly enough. He’d take him out and call up the starting catcher from our A affiliate to pitch for the DH, and then put a real pitcher back in the DH spot to confuse and confound the opponent with deft sabermetrics. He’d then pull all the names off the players’ jerseys.

I’m not saying he’ll have anything close to the same career, but I remember going to a Reds-Astro’s game back in Roy Oswalt’s rookie year. He came in to relieve and threw nothing but gas. I remember thinking “who is this guy?”

Not that Antone will one anywhere close to Oswalts career, but his appearance has that vibe.

The last time the Reds made the playoffs they gave up a perfect game in the series opener en route to a sweep.

In many ways, the fact that theyíre terrible is a blessing in disguise. We wonít have to go through that again.
