Redlegs Rundown

Completely Embarrassed

Took our annual Ball Trip with the guys this weekend.  Unfortunately it was to Pittsburgh where our beloved Reds took it on the chin the two games we went. 

Needless to say this was not the team we expected to see when we bought our tickets back in March.  Also needless to say we were utterly embarrassed by our boys' effort.  It was, in a word, pathetic.

I am losing hope.  I'm losing faith in Jocketty and Castellini.  As much as I'd like to believe they have our best intentions at heart, it just doesn't look like it on the field.  And with the news over the weekend from Hal McCoy that the organization is going to be in the hole $15 million this year, it doesn't bode well for next year without a fire sale...which is basically what I hoped for before the trade deadline. 

Simply, I'm embarrassed.  I'm completely depressed over the organization's direction and I honestly have zero hope for next year or years after. 

All you need to know is the Pittsburgh Pirates were clowning the Reds over the weekend.  The Pirates....
