I have seen enough of Difo. Not even close to being a major league player.

Maybe the same can be said for Kuhl.

Kuhl reminds me of Kip Wells. Without any talent. But scared of the strike zone.

Evans is definitely a better pitcher than a left fielder.

16 runs last night. Now 11 so far today. I know that we GABP is a hitters park, but especially when it's Pirates pitchers are throwing the ball

All we keep hearing from Block and McHenry is how hot the Reds are. Of course, they are hot. They are facing minor league pitching.

Well, at least the Buccos didn't get shutout today. Silver lining.

You gotta at least try to grab one on the road of a three-game series. They only had a chance in the opener. The Cubs series was at least competitive.

I was feeling pretty optomistic, after a good spring and an opening day win. But now we have the Hays injury and five consecutive losses, the last two being complete embarassments.

I understand we are rebuilding and are likely to have one of the worst if not the worst team in baseball, but if the team is going to be embarassed on a regular basis, that is not going to be the kind of environment that will foster the development that we need to see.

But its a long season and hopefully we are not going to see this type of baseball night after night. But with no starting pitching, this might be the historically bad season many have predicted.
