    This team sucked way to bad last year to only get to pick 7th.

    If it weren't for bad luck then we would have no luck at all.

    It’s one thing to not win the lottery, but to get punished by it 4 straight years that takes some really bad luck

    So you are saying this pick has a 50% chance of being a major leaguer..all hail tanking..( I know a majority of all picks are a crap shoot)

    If the Reds would have received the first overall pick, most fans would say the Reds will not sign him, he will be a bust, or they will just trade him anyway. This franchise is not going to make most fans happy with whatever move they make outside of signing every big time free agent available, have a payroll of $400m, and fire the manager at the end of every season that does not end in a WS championship.

    No, I'd be more disgusted with MLB rewarding outright tanking. I don't know why people still defend the franchise when the franchise itself peeled back the curtain and let the fans see exactly what the end game of everything was. Profits. They don't care about anything else but that 3rd yacht off the coast of Italy.

    How about a payroll that is $100 mil and a willingness to try and compete?

    I do not think anyone is sitting here saying the Reds should be the Yankees with regard to payroll. But, this team is clearly not trying right now and the organization has not won a playoff series since the mid 90s. What exactly do you expect from this beaten down fanbase?

    This is a garbage organization. They used to actually try, though. They are clearly not trying anymore, this is a money making operation for a dozen old wealthy people. That's it.
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    Paris pitched much better than Neagle in 1999. The Reds had won 15 of his 21 starts going into that game. Neagle, who was injured for a good part of the season, pitched quite poorly. Now maybe a bullpen game was in order, but Neagle wasn't the answer.

    I remember that game at then-Cinergy Field. In the pregame, the crowd thundered like in the BRM days. I thought “we have this game”. But when Alfonzo hit his HR, the only sound I heard was the celebrating from the Mets dugout. I’d never heard a full stadium so quiet. I looked at my son and said “I think we’re in trouble”. And we were.
    Transport me to the orb match.
