Things are getting very bleak. The Reds young starters are getting worse rather than improving. They are 23-46 in their last 69 games. That’s horrible for guys you are going to depend on next season. This gives me great concern for 2016. I knew the Reds after trading Cueto and Leake would not be very good but to be this bad was something I never figured. I liked their young pitchers and I still think they can be good but they need to be very good next year. Good won’t cut it in the National League Central division next season. All of Reds nation has reason to be concerned.
It looks like the Reds will wind up losing maybe 97-98 games this year. That is something that no one predicted at the start of the year. I figured maybe 79-83 at the worst! But 65-97 is just unbelievable!
