2016 Cincinnati Reds thread.

Recommended Posts

May as well start a thread for the regular season, and it's probably gonna be a long and ugly one. Before one game is in the books, five pitchers are on the DL. They are only projecting the Reds to win 67 games as well.

 in first place, probably won't be saying that very much this season.

So you're not feeling that whole 1990 Wire to Wire thing happening again?

Yeah, me neither.

I ran across this MLB payroll comparison chart. Hard to compete when other teams spend over twice what yours does.

Pretty telling.  Seems like if you want to compete with a small budget you had better spend it on pitching and that is not what this years Reds are all about.

Well, the tribe looked exactly like they did last year.  They threw Kluber out there, then could barely score to even support him.

I'll tell you what, Mike Napoli looks like we just tossed washed-up stiff Nick Swisher out the door and went out and found his twin brother to replace him.  He just looks hapless and old.  I'm fucking pissed.  We throw our Cy Young winner out there and can only manage 5 hits in support.

If any of you Reds fans are interested, Francisco Lindor, the shortstop the tribe got from Puerto Rico, is a stud.  They brought him up from triple A last year and he immediately became, and remains, the best player the Indians have.

They looked goodcompetitionng today.  Im starting to believe.  Now comes the fall.

These wins were against the Phillies. Hardly top notch competition. Still, first place does feel good.

Well the Pirates ended the fun. Now they lead the division and they're playing good ball too. I'm just hoping for something interesting to watch in baseball, because last year was rough.

so far the youth movement looks pretty solid, maybe in a couple of season they will get back to the playoffs.  They need to get some more good young players for Bruce and Phillips this season, when they start selling off talent.

The Reds take 2 out of 3 from the Pirates, and finish the home stand at 5-1. Another walk off win. On the road to Chicago up next.

The Reds jump out to a hot 5-1 start, and the Tribe sits at a desultory 2 and 2.  The weather in the mistake is so bad they can barely play games.  On the plus side, I managed to watch a few innings of Sox ace Chris Sale as he beat the Indians.  Dude can frickin' whip it in there.  He's a freak.

Wow, the Cubbies destroyed the Reds last night in no-hit fashion!

I got to watch the rerun at bw3s at lunch today. Talk about a baby seal beating. They stink.

Lindor cranks one out last night to win in extra innings.  Tonight the Reds have the chance to avoid the sweep, a goal they will likely accomplish.  The tribe can't stand prosperity.  I'm actually amazed they won the first 3, they were more likely to lose 3 in a row than win 3 in a row.  In spite of great starting pitching, and a couple nearly great bats, it is just not their year.  Again.

The Reds and Indians seem equally poor this year.

The Reds suck big fat donkey balls.
BIG. FAT. BALLS.

The bullpen's level of sh*tiness has reached levels of sh*tiness never thought possible.
They're sh*tty.
