Hello everybody and welcome back to the Mid-American page. This week I traveled to Great American Ballpark to watch the Cincinnati Reds take on the Colorado Rockies. It isn’t a huge secret the Reds haven’t been good, but when you watch it in person, well, it’s ugly.
I’ve been a Reds fan for awhile now and you really saw this shift from good to just terrible once Dusty Baker was fired. Now the Reds are on their third manager in five years. Riggleman is doing an ok job but I don’t not see much success with him. The Reds have a lot of talent down in the farm system and really need to find a manager to help mold them.
The Reds have almost gotten rid of almost every assets from the good years. The only remaining players is all-star Joey Votto, Billy Hamilton and Homer Bailey. Joey Votto, in my opinion is the Ted Williams of our era. The Reds really just need to blow this whole thing up and buy into the farm system. Votto deserves better and needs out of there before his career is wasted. The Reds could get rid of Hamilton but I don’t not see the point because he is still moderately young and one of the best defensive outfielders, not to mention his unbelievable speed. Now Homer Bailey.. What a joke. Read Cory’s article about that one.
The Reds are in desperate need of a rebuild they do not look like they truly want to blow it up just yet. What do you think? Let’s us know down in the comments. Thank you for tuning in on this Friday and stay tuned into myself and the rest of the Mid-American crew for more fresh daily content.
