This was supposed to be the week…

August 7, 2011

…that the Reds got back in it.  Sigh.  To be honest, I can’t watch a whole game anymore and I’ve reverted to listening more and more to the bluntness that is Marty Brennaman.

I can hardly stand this any more.  Why aren’t ALL of the young guys playing?  This season is now a lost cause with the Reds 9 games out, they should be playing, especially since Rolen is done and Gomes is gone.

Why has this team rolled over for the Cubs and Astros?

Where is the fire?

Why have they stopped “plugging away”?

Why haven’t “we got hot” yet?

There is only one logical explanation for this type of stupidity:

(my apologies to Keith's Sports Journal, http://49er16.blogspot.com)

As Redleg Nation poster “Aaron” says:

“While most of the blame must be placed on the players, there hasn’t seemed to be any accountability this season. “Oh, we’re playing like crap? Well, that’s OK. We’ll get hot soon.” That attitude is OK in April, but it’s continued all the way through August. This “players manager” attitude is a little troubling.”

That pretty much sums things up.
