    The boys have lost 16 out of their last 18 in Pittsburgh? I think its time for a change and I'm not talking about firing the hitting coach.

    2 major trades this FO have gotten horribly wrong (Puig/Wood-Downs/Gray and Puig/Trammell-Bauer) and 2 more smaller misses with Roark for what’s his name and Scooter for a box of rice-a-roni.

    Why are we supposed to believe these people, buttressed by Davey Boy in the dugout, can make this franchise a contender?
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.

    Reds got swept in DC and now this in Pittsburgh. Road warriors. Not.

    What comes after that?

    Seems like The Pirates have been in their head since 2013.


    Different names, same timid and scared play in Pittsburgh.

    I've always thought he was a little overrated but he was always at least solid, certainly not this bad. He's had two of the worst games of his career since coming to The Reds.

    I'm hoping the Indians didn't pull one over on us.
    They did. No contending team that has already lost Kluber and Carrasco is willing to part with a true QS. He’s a head case and he may be hurt.

    I know. I agree he should be allowed to swing 3-0 with Bauer next but if you donít swing 3-0 at a pitch thatís not very near perfect....you get at least 2 more pitches. His vs lefty and vs righty stats are silly to say the least.

    At the plate and in field he looks like a minor leaguer today. I like him but heís not where he was in July. It was 3-0....everything about it seemed like an obvious pitch around with Bauer on deck after a terrible inning.

    I believe 100% he was being walked and felt it before the first pitch due to scenario of Bauer next. First pitch showed Ervin wasnít thinking that way at all. In his only defense he never bats in front of the pitcher. Where he always bats I have less issue with the aggressiveness....though Iíve already mentioned early in game that I think teams are really pitching to our aggressiveness.

    There are a lot of factors. Reply if you like but Iím done going back and forth. We arenít going to completely agree.

    Letís just sit back and enjoy Reynolds 5 or 6 hit game

    the way Scooter is playing, think we got close to fair value

    Bellís ass should be fired on the spot before leaving Pittsburgh. Send a message. Let Clint Hurdle deliver the pink slip for added effect.

    Suarez swings at a pitch 2 feet off the plate in his pursuit of 200 strikeouts

    I’d almost rather debate this point than watch this game. Yes, I’m about done in both cases. Thanks for the discussion.
