Homer Bailey endeared himself to the Reds with his comments today about the GM and his teammates. The worst part, IMO, is that he doesn't seem to realize that his contract is a decent part of their problem up until now.

Huge walk off shot tonight after Mike Matheny pulled one of the worst managerial moves this year (letting Oh bat with the bases loaded in the 8th + his inability to figure out the double switch)

Btw, since May 5th, Joey Votto has been the best hitter in baseball. Just thought I would toss this out for no real reason.

Agree that Price is terrible, but you can also only manage the cards your dealt. Jocketty is not a terrible GM, is he the best in the MLB? Not at all, but I wouldn't say he is terrible. Votto is tearing the cover off the ball lately, BA up to .293, was like .250 at the break I think. They are playing good baseball right now.

Big win for the Reds last night. I know they can't make it back but Hope they can move up some before the end.

Can't believe you say that about the GM ? He got his money ! He made to many bad decisions when contracts was on the line! Wish Bruce the best but 0-4 in his first start strikes out twice .

I don't see how you can say that about the GM. I never said he was the best in baseball or anything like that. All those good Cardinal teams, he built those teams. Those good teams the Reds had from I think 2010-2012, he helped build those teams. So clearly he knows what he is doing. He might have mad a few bad choices in contracts but he isn't terrible by any stretch of the imagination.

The Reds won again this afternoon over the Cardinals, 7-0. They are tearing it up right now. They've won all 6 series since the All-Star break.

Good day for Phillips, but not a great start to the Pittsburgh series.

Bailey is actually pitching well for how long he's been completely out of the game. I'm pretty happy with his pitching in his first couple games.

As a Cubs fan, I think I can safely say that I hate the Reds after tonight. I'm just glad the Cardinals are awful or this would be 10x more annoying than it already is.

Ridiculous! Up 4-0 bottom of the 9th with 1 out, end up losing 5-4.

Last night was embarrassing to be a Reds fan.

You bean the 10th batter of the 9th inning to force in the winning run with bases juiced to lose 5-4.

I think they can over take the Brewers, but they'll have to be more consistent.

According to Game Score, Bailey had the best start for a Red last night. 6 shutout innings, 11K and 1BB.

The Leake deal is also looking better and better every time Leake goes out to pitch. He logs innings and doesn't walk people, those are the positives that you can say about him this year. Bottom 5 in the NL in hits, runs, and ERA.

This post will likely come back to bite me as a Cubs fan since he pitches tomorrow and has dominated them throughout his career, but I'm glad he went to the Cards this offseason.

Bailey has looked pretty strong since his return, liking what I'm seeing.

Votto

Last 60 games: .377/.506/.589/1.095
Since AS Break: .462/.560/.692/1.252

He's up to .301 on the year. That dude is insane.
