    Blame the MLB for moving Opening Day to Thursday, not the Reds.

    Exactly. They are damned if they do, damned if they don't. If they make people stand around for hours and wind up not playing, Opening Day is ruined.

    I think they made the right decision. It's what the extra day is for.

    Exactly and how long did he last in Washington with all that talent?

    Since 2000, 16 managers have won 90+ games and not returned to the team the next season. 3 of those have been Dusty Baker (2002 SF, 2013 CIN, 2017 WAS).


    Makes you wonder doesn't it.

    Pitchers get injured, part of the game, but why do they stay injured on the Reds, for years at a time........
    Finnegan appears to be on the 25 man roster and @HammerTime says Reed is starting on TUE (although not 1 of the 13 Ps currently listed on the 25 man roster?).

    That said, your overall point that the 3 Ps acquired from KC have "underwhelmed" is accurate.

    Only thing I don't get is Gosselin and Pennington. They are the same crappy player. No need to take up two bench spots with them IMO.

    Reed would not be starting if they had not moved opening day.

    It will be easier to let them go when Senzel is ready.

    Yep, they wouldn't have needed a 5th starter for a bit and Finnegan would have been ready at that point.

    I thought that Garrett was in line to make that start?
