Not expecting anything from this so called "team". Honestly it feels like 2019 all over again....so many holes and a serious lack of leadership on this team. Wouldn't be surprised if Matt Harvey is going to look like he did 5 years ago....

Suarez still batting cleanup also shows that David Bell has no clue...oh and Jank starting? Give me a ****** break. Jank looks and hits like Bronson Arroyo. Horrible....

You need someone behind the plate that knows how to defend, manage a pitcher, etc.

The Reds offense doesn't and shouldn't rely on the catcher position.

I almost feel bad for Thom. Obviously, you can't say that! But I do sometimes feel bad for people that have to recondition themselves... There was probably a good 35-40 years of his life where it wasn't a big deal to say that (in his circles). Not sure how to express that without confusing that I don't condone it. But damn... hate to see an entire career get killed like that. He should have his career killed because he is terrible at his job. Not that
He's a guy with a family. A kid plays golf at Mariemont. He made a mistake. We've all said dumb stuff. I agree that he deserves another chance. He is a very good football broadcaster.

Yes, Bauer can remain a dominant pitcher, even if his velocity is down.

Doesn't change the fact that it he and the Reds took notice of it.

In this shortened season with no real spring training, signifcant pitcher injuries, etc, you don't take chances. Instead, be smart and protect your biggest assets.

exactly.. most of us , when we are at work, we are very careful what we say.. you never know who might be listening.
The fact that he felt so comfortable in the radio booth that he would have a rant like that is a huge problem.
Just like his dad, he felt he had a lifetime job with the Reds, no matter what he did.
His dad was not as stupid, but abused his job security too.

Trevor Bauer has 41 strikeouts through his first 4 starts this season. The only NL pitchers with more were Randy Johnson (44 in 1999, 42 in 2000) and Steve Carlton (42 in 1983).
