    The pirates, like the Reds, have no intention of trying.

    The A’s and Reds finished 2nd and 4th, and ended up 6th and 7th.

    What you want is for teams that finish with the worst records to have a better shot at the top draft picks, but not a guarantee. That is exactly what happened.

    The Reds and A’s quite literally do not care where they are picking. This was not a tank to get a high draft pick. It was a payroll slashing so they could make more profits. This draft lottery is not going to have any effect whatsoever on the Reds and A’s decision making.

    A complete dull thud of a ballgame.

    Listened to the Rangers' G.M. yesterday and everything he says is the opposite of the REDS' brass. They are clearly committed to winning. They are in an extremely tough division though with the Astros, A's, Mariners and Angels.

    REDS have easily the weakest Division to battle against and they still suck as a franchise.

    I agree with the overall point but the angels and A’s suck ass right now.

    It was over before it began. There was no way we were going to score against Leiter. Easily predictable before the game began. It wasn't the game of his life. He was just that good and that much better than the REDS. He would have shut us out 9 times out of 10 that season. He had a great year during a great career.

    MLB instituted this lottery to dissuade teams from tanking. Your club could lose 120 games and pick 7th. Or you can win 85 games, miss the playoffs and pick first.

    Since there is no guarantee the team with the worst record will have a high pick, they’ve disincentivized tanking.

    THAT is what happened. Didn’t work last year. Probably won’t this year.
