    Another wasted first-round draft choice. This one on an 18 year old wunderkind.
    You think his career is over?

    Reds offense in 2018 was #8 or better in almost every stat. The offense wasn't the problem last year. Looking at the off season moves, I expected this year's offense to be better than last year's. You didn't?

    Yeah, they will be better but who cares in June when we are 15 to 20 games out. The season is over early like many of the past seasons.

    I think I heard that the Reds are scoreless in 19 straight innings. Nearly three games.

    On a positive note the commish really likes our Reds, with their lack of offense they’re lowering the average length of a game!!

    Reds have scored only 11 runs through the first six games which is second fewest in Reds history. 1943 was the lowest. Suarez with a leadoff double in the second.

    Reds don't score after a lead off double (21).

    Isn’t the success rate after surgery 90%?

    Terrible would be an understatement. I do not think I have witnessed 3 straight shut outs. One thing that drove me nuts at the end of spring training was Irwin getting sent down. He was raking all spring. He’s better than kemp and Schebler at this point. Doesn’t make a lot of sense and it has to cause chemistry issues. Irwin played well at the end of last year as well. He has earned the right in my book. Scooter must mean more than we realize. Better keep him and Senzel to CF so we can score. Unfortunately that’s not till June and we will be 25 games back.
