    Reds really suck right now. Bad pitching, bad base running and bad defense don't equate to winning ball games. Is there any relief in sight, or will this bad stretch push them to the basement where they might stay the rest of the season?

    It's a miracle they are only 3 games under .500 from what they have gotten out of the SP the last month.

    I believe if we pick apart the teams the Reds are playing the same way, we will see mistakes made by opponents, including the Giants, Cubs and Rockies.

    For the record losing a fly ball in the sun or lights isn't a physical or mental error. It simply happens at times. To the very best of fielders.

    I still like the Reds offensively and defensively. When the starting rotation gets Disco,Homer and Finnegan back, whenever that may be, I think this team can still make a run for a wild card after the All Star break. They are better than anyone in the division head to head when they are on except for the Cubs and Brewers.

    Guess you've watched every single one of their games, without missing an inning, to ensure they haven't made a mistake?

    I agree, IF they can get to that point. Big IF that they get that healthy.

    @LRCW. I'll be in the stadium for both games for Cleveland. Had a few minor league starts. I'm ready!
