    Votto strikes out looking for the fourth time today I believe. He is just terrible. He needs a stint on the IL.

    This team is really frustrating to watch. It seems like every time I turn on the game it's only to watch them blow a 2-3 run lead.

    That strike 3 wasn’t even close. CB Buckner still sucks.

    Suarez strikes out and the Reds just game another game away to the Giants. These games we give away against the Giants are why we can not contend. Cubs, Cards and Brewers wins these type of games.

    I don't know why, but Votto does not get those border line pitches from the umps that he got two years ago.

    Maybe it should be its's own thread, but Billy Hamilton is outhitting Joey Votto on the season. Even striking out less per 100 plate appearances. Since he reverted to being a defensive hitter, he has not earned 20% of his $25million salary.

    Can we change these Reds thread titles to “Whine and Complain About the Reds vs. XYZ Series” because that’s all that goes on in these things. Good Lord people.

    That's likely to remain the case as long as they stay below .500. It doesn't help that they've lost multiple games after leading by 2-3 or more runs through 5 innings of play.

    I appreciate the score updates and short summaries of the games. Beyond that, not much of interest in here for me any more.

    I nominate this to be the avatar for these threads.

    Did you watch the game today? You don't expect passionate Reds fans to Whine and Complain? Manager making terrible moves, our Superstar batting .206 and terrible baseball plays like ever game. You must be a fan that says if they win OK and if they lose no big deal. I am tired no Playoffs for several years, no playoff wins for any longer and no World Series since 1990. Getting fed up with the Reds.

    I understand you like the Reds no matter what and Votto is your hero no matter what he does. So you don't want to bother with the truth about the Reds.

    Dude every post in these threads is whining and complaining about something. It’s the same thing from the same posters in UK threads, in Bengals threads, etc. It’s tiresome.

    And yeah I’d love the Reds to win, but dude it’s baseball. It’s entertainment, it ain’t worth getting that worked up over. Way more important things to worry about.
