    Someone wake up Suarez and the offense will be fine.

    The issue is going to be the bullpen all year long. Hopefully the offense gets healthy and the SP keeps it out of the relievers' hands.

    It's natural to be down about these games, but there were two or three "at 'em" balls that, if they found green instead of leather, we'd all be yucking it up right now.

    A short season will amplify the fact luck can be a killer in Baseball.

    There is no denying the poor performance of the pen thus far. It is cause for concern.

    I've decided "It" is David Bell. We definitely have "It". "It" is front and center.

    Short season and all, but luck can be a killer.
    If a team is relying on luck - when it keeps allowing key homers - it’s in for a long season.

    Agreed. See my edit.

    Lucky for you it's not a long season. It will be over before you know it.

    It's looking like "it" is the rona at this point.

    Game out of first in late July, I like where this team is headed.

    The Reds wouldn’t be in worse shape if they were haunted by Pennywise the dancing clown, beb.

    I am trying to think of a more deflating series as a reds fans. Probably the end of season series against the pirates in 2013 when they flopped and you then knew what was coming in the wild card game.

    At least we knew that game was going to get played... not so sure about tomorrow's game. Next round of testing should come in tomorrow, and with two players already showing symptoms, there's likely more players pre-symptomatic. Could be looking worse than the Marlins.

    Of course, MLB has no protocol in place for what happens when a large contingent of a team is infected, other than "hoping that doesn't happen."

The post game interviews were great. Even our quiet natured, mega millions star is stepping out front to show support for teammates. Moose and Castellanos are great character additions. This team has the makings of a great clubhouse, which is wildly underrated in baseball.

    My biggest fear was the Reds laying a dud tonight, that would seem par for the course in Reds country when there has been plenty of optimism surrounding them. Instead they dominated.

    Maybe, just maybe we have it this year.

    I reiterate, until the Reds can consistently beat and have a winning record against the AL they will never field a team worth watching nor ever field a team that will ever win anything worth note.
