    With that kind of winning percentage, that would make them a 48 or 49 win team in a full season depending on how you round it, ie the worst Reds team of all time. So uh, they arenít that bad.

    The Reds will be fine regardless. Sometimes, the pitcher is better or the umpire incompetent. We saw many pitches called as strikes or balls that were obviously outside the trike box. We also saw Indian pitchers pitching on the edge of the box and getting favorable results. it all evens out over a 162-game season, but we don't have that. This season really means nothing. It doesn't mean the Reds suck. Enjoy that we have baseball. And don't swing at those sliders.

    I dunno about worst in team history, but they're likely a bottom 5 team in MLB this year. They don't really have to be the worst team in Reds history to run off a terrible record like that though. In a shortened season, they just have to go through a prolonged rough spell.

    No, they are not a bottom 5 team in MLB.. No way.
    Worst teams: Miami, Pittsburg, Royals, Orioles, and Tigers.
    To make your case, you would have to argue the Reds are worse than one of those 5 teams. Good luck.

    Think the argument needs to be more focussed on where this team should be. Pound for pound we are better than those 5 by a long way. At the moment we're playing like we belong on that list.

    I agree the offense is underachieving now, and the bullpen is a mess.
    With that said, we are only 1.5 games behind the Brewers for second place, which is good enough to make the playoffs this year.
    So in spite of the bad start, we are still contending, because the Cubs are the only NL Central team that got off to a good start.

    Well, 3 of those teams have better records than the Reds. 1 of them is in first place and has only lost 1 game.

    Still want to argue that the Reds are better than ANY of these teams? Much less all of them?...I stand by my statement. Bottom 5.
