No Aquino. Finally.

Who did the Reds send down. Not Moran. Friedl? Riddle? Aquino? Guessing Friedl lefty hitting OF, same as Naquin.

Let's hope Mahle has a bounce back and ends this disaster losing streak. As much as I love Reds baseball. This has been hard to watch. Feels like as soon as the opponent scores the game is over.

The Reds have a full 5 starters in the actual starting lineup. And Moran versus a righty. With Mahle pitching they might win.

Even given the current lack of options, Drury at 2 and Farmer and Senzel at 5-6 doesn't make any sense against a RHP. I'd sit Senzel for Fraley and drop Drury and Farmer down. I'd also try Lopez at leadoff and have Naquin hit cleanup. And Moran should be the DH, not Drury. Bell has everything all jumbled up!

1. Alejo Lopez (S) 2B

I've not seen a single person on here who indicated they they are outraged. Not a one. I know I'm certainly not outraged. I'm not outraged with anything an owner does with his team. It's his money. And I don't give my money to him. I have seen folks , including myself, WM , and others say that they thought it was kinda sad that Phil keeps bringing Bengals out to throw pitches. Once was probably sufficient. Maybe it's his way of trying to appease fans. I have no idea. If I were the Bengals I would refuse any further invitations to appear at any Reds' function as long as this ownership is in charge. The Bengals don't need the Reds at this point. They are champions and Bengals' ownership continues to show its willingness to pay for more championships.

Instead of trotting out Eli Apple to throw a pitch, why not have a "Dunk the Castellinis" night t the ole ball orchard. I think fans would show up in droves to have a chance to send Bob or Phil under water. It would be fun and might indicate to fans that these out of touch owners at least are listening to fan unrest and maybe can even be a little self-deprecating at times. Might actually improve relations between fans and ownership.

What's the use in sending out another Bengal???

I guess outrage was the are word.
I have seen people say "they are leeching off the success of the only professional winner in town" and "this as a clear attempt to ride the coattails of the successful franchise in town"

NOBODY buys tickets to watch ANYBODY throw out the first pitch.

Canít wait to see him traded. Get coached on his approach, and turn into a Cy Young candidate. Just no use for a starter that consistently goes 4 2/3 inningsÖ..could not care less about his k/9, which seems like the focus. Tries to strike every hitter out.

He is looking less and less like a major league starting caliber player. Way too small of a sample size. Hopefully he starts to hit.
May end up being a career platoon guy /bench bat.
But on this current roster he should start. Have to see what he is

I didn't think this team was gonna be good but I didn't think they'd go 2018 Orioles to start the year.

I just can't help but think back on Castellanos's fire, Suarez's vibing, Winker's presence. All three of those guys were some version of clubhouse leader. I think they were really good for Joey too. And then in a blink of an eye, all gone. For payflex or whatever. Not even a phone call to Castellanos to see what was in his mind. The guys still here... I just don't think they've recovered from that loss. Add in the injuries and you get...whatever this is. Further add in relying on really young guys like Greene and Lodolo (and SanMartin for now) for innings, and, well, yeah.

I agree with the overall sentiment, but Suarez was negative value last year

And yet, in September, he appeared to find something. Which has carried over. That's on the tangibles. on the intangibles, even when struggling, he brought something. Not sure what Moran is bringing. But, hey, he's cheaper, so that's good.

Once again, Mahle can't put hitters away, wastes too many pitches, walks too many.

He is so good otherwise, which makes it even more frustrating that he does this so often.

Iíd go with - Reds traded away two of their best hitters and a third power guy and didnít replace them in kind.

Iím not big on presence or leadership making the difference. Guys can step up in the clubhouse. They just cut the heart out of the offense.

The Reds are not 2-12 because of Colin Moran and the guys been a whipping boy since spring training games that didn’t matter in the least. So yes to me it’s 100% misplaced rage. Cutting Moran tomorrow is fine by me but still leaves like 6-7 guys who are still playing worse than he is right now.

I have no idea who the **** feels what about Colin Moran. There isn't a meeting where these things are decided. This was an 83 win team last year that dealt away good and useful players and in the Moran instance brought in one that the 61 win team was super happy to no longer employ.

I donít wanna have any conversations about this ****ty team. Thereís like nothing to say. They suck. But I guess now me AND Colin Moran are why everything is terrible. Fine. Have a good one man, Iím drinking a beer and chilling.

That may be the effect of the humidors the league has in all the parks now. One article about that said one of the the things the baseballs do after being in the humidor is the ball comes off the bat harder initially but doesn't carry as far.

humidors are a part of it - but several really good tweets this AM that the evidence is pointing to dead ball in addition to the humidor issue.

When's the last time the Reds hit a home run? Pham in San Diego?

Hunter Strickland time. We’ll see what he can do in this very low leverage situation.

Ridiculous

dead ball, humidors in use, and some of our bigger bats elsewhere or injured. It's a rough combination.

I’m declaring shenanigans with Strickland. He’s poo.

I really thought Strickland would be a dependable middle reliever, at least.

I guess not.

I get the Reds offense is injured and awful to begin with, but this honestly defies all logic. I legit think you could put most AAA teams in the Reds place and they would be competing better.

This team is bad, but it's not this bad. I attribute some part of it to having a manager without a pulse.

I understand there's a difference between what Bell might say to a reporter and what Bell might say to the team.

But publicly, Bell seems as defeated and depressed as anyone watching this game.

Are they trying anything different? Is he doing literally anything to change the trajectory of this team? He never says much more than "every team goes through this" and "we have to keep trying"

They're on their way to getting shutout for the 2nd time in 3 games and Bell looks like he needs a nap.

Wondering if they fire Bell soon? Won't make a difference. But it will make the front office look as though they are doing something I guess

He seems like a nice dude, but he has no sense of urgency

Some of these guys are going to start hitting. Pham? I’m not so sure. He looked done last season and he’s even worse now.

This may be who he is now.

Injuries have hurt but Pham and Votto hitting 150 doesn’t even give us a chance. I was thinking Votto would start the year hot.

Honestly, whatís he supposed to do? Earl Weaver couldnít do anything with this roster. I guess they could fire him and bring in Larkin, which would be the most Reds thing ever.

This team has no fire to it all. Get upset do something they just sleepwalk through these games. I know they have injuries but this is pitiful

NebraskaRed

They may never admit it publicly, but Phil Castellini's opening day comments killed whatever hope these players might have felt. And this was on top of already feeling down about the offseason trades.

Joel Luckhaupt just posted Reds have scored 9 runs in the last 8 games that is their least amount of runs in an 8 game stretch since 1945

Yes this mess is not Bellís fault but they are going to look for scapegoat soon. I am amazed the hitting coach is not gone. They have scored 20 runs in these 11 games less then the Cubs scored today
