    Yep. With 2 of the losses being from walk-off wild pitches.

    Go back to Boston. I don't know why you peruse the Red's thread except to cast a shadow.

    Was I incorrect? Scooter has had a fine year. He does not deserve the Silver Slugger Award at second base.

    Not at all but you manage to stick your nose into the Red's thread whenever you can to drag the Reds down farther. You know that it hasn't been that long ago that the Red Sox sucked and couldn't get out of their own way. The Reds are not good right now but they have some things going for them and hopefully they will be back soon. How did 1975 end up for you? But I'm guessing you weren't a Sox fan back then probably a Big red machine fan huh??

    The "clown" had great 2016. Not so much this year but you see that a lot with relievers. Don't dump him yet. See what happens in 2018.
    He has to learn to spot and take off total velocity on his pitches. Plus his mechanics suck which is why I get upset when I watch him.

    Did anyone notice that Storen almost gave up 4 runs on 3 pitches? Might have been a new MLB record if he had done it. 1st pitch single. 2nd pitch ground rule double. No pitch IBB (new rule) and then strike 1 and grand slam on 4th pitch. When I 1st watched it, I saw P:3 when he gave up the GS and thought we had set a record!!!

    I can't imagine a 4P grand slam has happened often.

    Price is an idiot. Why in the world is Winker not playing every day? Schebler comes back and Winker gets regulated to the bench. Moronic.
