Emailer Dave:
I give you your 2014 Cincinnati "BAD NEWS BEARS" Reds

Here's the breakdown of this teams starting 8

1) Billy Hamilton- Completely Overmatched
2) Brandon Phillips- He'll be fine
3) Joey Votto- Looks Complete LOST at the plate
4) Jay Bruce- Will be fine.
5) Ryan Ludwig- Looks like an OLD MAN, and SHOULDN'T even be on this team
6) Todd Frazier- Still don't think he's an everyday player
7) Zack Cozart- Will be fine if he can hit .250
8) Pena, ALL Hit, no D
Given 5 outs in the 8th, and can't score, PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!!
83-79 and NO PLAYOFFS for THIS team, Sure hope Hamilton can steal first base, he's no where close to being in the Bigs, Embarrassing as a leadoff hitter.--
