    I'm just not sure how any of us can even being to consider the Reds a contender. We're like, 4-5 players away, not 1-2.

    Yell a little more loudly at the guys in the bullpen. Maybe withhold their allowence for a week.

    I don't see it was Narron's fault - he can't go out an pitch for the guys. If he had Hammonds out there we'd be saying the same thing. The guys in the BP aren't getting it done at the moment. BP arms are at a premium. The mistakes were made before this year in not havnig arms available to bring up and putting together a workable BP. Too many of the same kind of guys. Yan should have made a difference but both he and Coffey have been unreliable lately.

    Instead of watching our bullpen blow yet another game, let's all just volunteer to transport experimental explosives in our shorts

    Unlike Standridge, Belisle at least gives you a chance.

    I for one don't blame this one on Narron. I still think he's a bad manager, but this loss isn't his fault.

    I hate baseball.

    The bullpen does fine, but blows another game. Amazing

    Well Standridge looks like the suckiness of the other guys in the bullpen has rubbed off on him now.

    Interesting how the Brewers keep a young guy like Weeks in there day in and day out even though he is erratic in the field.

    Braves will likely take 3 of 4 and the Reds go in at 45-44 :thumbdown

    1-8 vs. the NL Central in the last 9 games
    8-17 since the high water mark of 36-24

    Only hope is the NL Central is a complete mess and someone must get an invite to the playoffs

    This bullpen is absolutely awful. It contains one guy (Coffey) who can kinda' sorta' pitch and a bunch of junk that can't. I'm actually surprised that the Reds made it past Yan's puke job earlier in extras to make a fight of it.
