    The day Bailey and his albatross of a contract expire will be a happy day for the Reds. The Reds chose poorly when they gave that one out.

    The shame is they're actually getting on base better this season. 5th in OBP but 14th in homers in the NL.

    Reds making the aging Adrian Gonalez look like Barry Bonds.

    He’s gone after next year, they will buy his last year out for 5 million.

    That $5 million will hurt. That will prevent them from signing 2020's Gosselin, Pennington and Gallardo.

    True but better than giving him 20+.

    His 2nd. He his first a few weeks ago on a Sunday vs. the Cardinals. Only reason I remember is because it's the first game I attended as a fan in 6 years since they move the game so far back that we didn't vend.

    I think Homer Bailey might be my least favorite Cincinnati Red in my lifetime.

    Suarez has been pretty darn good since coming back from injury.

    Adam Duvall is quickly making his claim to that title for me. He adds absolutely ZERO to this roster. He'd be lucky to have a job on 29 other teams, yet he plays every day for the Reds.

    They are going to have to settle on Winker, Hamilton and Schebler as their everyday outfield. Duvall is in one of the worst funks I have ever seen. i don't see him coming out of it anytime soon. Not sure what they can do with him but they have to move on. Good guy, hate to see him struggle like he is.

    They need to send him to the unemployment line. He's still on a rookie deal and is only making $645K. Cut him loose and let Ervin man the 4th OF spot.

    Since the All-Star break last year, Adam Duvall has been stellar. .197/.265 with 16 HR and 54 RBI. He does have 113 Ks in that time frame though. It's almost 400 ABs. It's not a slump, it's the crappy player that he is.

    I happened to be in the aisle right above the end of the Reds dugout when Teddy came out. It was awesome. Love their special bond together.
