Looking forward to Glasnow's 2017 debut. The Reds are the type of team the Pirates need to rack up wins against this season. Hopefully they can take care of business at home.

Sweep would be nice but 2 out of 3 needs to happen against the bottom feeders

Uhh, last time I checked, like this morning, the Reds are tied with the Cubs @ 4-2 atop the division.

And just shut out the Cards in St. Louis in 2 games over the weekend. Let's hope our rookies pitch better than theirs.

It would be nice to see them get off to a good start against the division. I will take 2 out of 3 every series.

We don't need to sugarcoat things.  The Reds stink.

So much for the Glasnow experiment against the putrid bottom scum REDS.

Yep, Glasnow is horrible and I put $1,000 on the Reds to win the World Series.

I was more disappointed in the bats than Glasnow.  1st inning two runners on no one out.  2nd inning bases loaded no one out.  3rd inning bases loaded no one out.  You only score one run out of all those base runners and it came on a bases loaded walk.  Polonco is standing there at a complete stop as the ball is put in play, and doesn't even think about running home on a force play until he sees it is a fair ball.  The base running has still been horrendous this year, and that includes base running fundamentals any good high school team does every single time.  It's just one game in the grand scheme of things and I'm not saying they won't turn it around, but they definitely have some things to sure up.
