    Votto with an error that allows another run to score. This team is difficult to watch.

    Cingrani stunk tonight.

    It was the fifth inning. There was no right answer.

    Move on.

    Votto's defense other than picking throws out of the dirt has been inexcusable for awhile. He has to fix it.

    Maybe they'll have another team meeting. Those always work well.

    Just glanced at the replay, was that foul?

    Walt built a roster with zero margin for error. It's almost like he thought 2012 health luck was possible every year.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    That was on the road and against the Pirates. This is at home against the Cubs.

    I think him at DH would fix it --- oh wait -- I hate the DH

    Wasn't that Pirate game at home?

    Not if you choose to replace him with a AAA pitcher. If there was a better option, fine. But as many said at the time of the decision "there must be something wrong with Cingrani" or no way he would make that decision. Now that it looks like Cingrani is not hurt, that bad decision is being excused? Just because Cingrani looked mediocre through the first four doesn't mean I wouldn't rather have him out there over a AAA pitcher in a tie game in the 5th inning.

    Bad decision by Price if Cingrani wasn't hurt.

    The only fix is if the DH came to the NL.

    This is just embarrassing. Getting steamrolled at home by The Cubs.
