jareda33

Something absolutely DRASTIC needs to happen to this bullpen in the offseason. That type of performance is unacceptable and it happens regularly. That was the 7th or 8th time Mahle was in line to get the win and ended up not getting it because of the bullpen. Totally unacceptable.


elchamps

Yeah we know. It’s a broken record at this point.


elchamps

Antone is such a great guy. So full of life and positive energy. My heart really does hurt thinking about what he’s feeling right now.


DG-turf

Great game Mahle. Sucks we couldn’t finish that.


TheRealJalil

Wow we did make it to 3K damn.


rolmega

Wow, so good. They've never won a world series. Ryan Braun is a cheater. See ya tomorrow.


TheWorstYear

Aquino is a good counter to Hader. Fast bat speed to match his high heat Didn't work this time, but something to consider later on.


SirDukeIII

Well Aquino is looking better behind the plate when it comes to discipline, here’s hoping his average starts to improve from here


BobEBoucher

3000 comments. 2000 of them were; "FUCK!!!"


TheRealJalil

Tough one tonight! Let’s get em tomorrow! Hope for healthy Antone!


elchamps

I just hope Casty stays and we can run it back next year. These bozos don’t deserve to be at the top of the Central


punkrockabilly

Dang


ltch223

Punisher having a hell of an at bat though


rolmega

Hell yeah, AA! Wear him out for the rest of the series!


ltch223

Blowing big leads is the most demoralizing way to lose. Comebacks give the other teams momentum


[deleted]

On the bright side, Aquino’s put up some damn good AB’s tonight.


Redlegs229

3K comments so that’s cool


LastRuneUser

Can blame it on the BP, could also blame it on Shogo being a pitchers spot in the lineup with the bases loaded. It’s baseball, shit happens


elchamps

I dearly hope that the Giants or Dodgers demolish the Brewers in the playoffs


DG-turf

We’ll be back tomorrow. 2/3 then lets go from there


rolmega

Votto closeup said it all.


Dandibear

Right with you there, Joey


allegedrc4

Aquino putting in work. Wow.


SirDukeIII

I think votto’s crying for Antone dude


NobesTheSavage

Aquino putting up a solid AB, I’ve gotta admit


TheRealJalil

He had a 10 pitch AB earlier too, I’d love to see him get a hold of one


punkrockabilly

Reds!


elchamps

Imagine having a golden opportunity to steal a game from the NL Cy Young and not doing so


jackengle

Holy shit 3k comments on a game thread. Tigers fan living in Cincy so I follow closely, but I still didn’t know reds fans were this great of fans


TheRealJalil

Almost!


punkrockabilly

Reds.


cerodark

This game definitely sucks to lose, but we showed we can crack one of the best starters in baseball. Lorenzen had one bad outing this season and it happened to be in a very important game…so what. Still absolutely love this team. I know we can do damage in the playoffs no matter who we face. After all the Brewers are one of the best teams in baseball. Can’t win em all.


steadyfast102

I think we have already proved that we can hit good pitching. This game showed us that our bullpen is still horrible


cerodark

That was the first runs that Lorenzen gave up this year. Pitchers are going to blow saves it happens, but Givens and Lorenzen are as reliable as they come.


Stork-Buckeyes

This team's bullpen doesn't get better after 100 years.


allegedrc4

This game is a gut punch and a half.


NobesTheSavage

At this point, gotta just shake this one off and try again tomorrow Our goal is the postseason, whether it’s through wildcard or division


punkrockabilly

Reds.


punkrockabilly

Reds.


elchamps

don’t ever forget that josh hader is a racist pos


Phillyfunbags

He looks like a mega jerk!


TheRealJalil

Pepperidge farm remembers


punkrockabilly

Reds.


Redlegs229

I will see all of you tomorrow. Tough one tonight. Go Reds


punkrockabilly

Reds.


choate51

Bullpen looked damn good when playing teams that reside at or near the basement....


rolmega

There's not much you can do when your bullpen gives up six runs in like three innings. That's the end of the game. That's the problem with bad bullpens, you don't have the time to make it up.


steadyfast102

It was actually 2 innings


rolmega

Even better.


steadyfast102

This team loses in the most retarted fucking ways


internet_bastard_man

We don’t use that word anymore and it’s ironic that you spelled it wrong


punkrockabilly

Reds.


insideman513

it doesn't really count if you're just writing random stuff yo


punkrockabilly

It counts for me. And we made it.


BobEBoucher

Suarez jumping out of the way of a pitch right down the heart of the plate.


punkrockabilly

Reds.


punkrockabilly

Trying to get to 3000 comments.


NobesTheSavage

Bell made the right moves. Things just didn’t click today


liberatedtech68

Harder is filthy Jesus Christ


TheRealJalil

Yeah we’ve faced some real gnarly stuff this game and still scored 4 runs so far.


liberatedtech68

Just wasn’t enough


punkrockabilly

Reds.


TheRealJalil

Reds.


joethecrow23

Strikeout looking


SirDukeIII

Suarez you could at least look like you give a shit


ottovyeoj

We need baserunners, better slide that 257 on base percentage into the box. Edit: hell yeah


punkrockabilly

Getting close to 3000 comments. We are solid fans, imho.


liberatedtech68

Need to take the next two, no exceptions


Mastodon9

Even our good bullpen arms stunk it up tonight.


JoeyVottoBangs

Dicks out for Harambe


idontcare111

Just a real outstanding effort from the BP tonight. Divisional game and they piss their pants.


SomewhereAggressive8

Me, personally, I’m just going to start jogging every morning again to prepare my heart for a one game playoff. At least we have time to prepare. I’m ready for it.


TheWorstYear

Well. I guess this is a move Bell.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Redlegs229

Mahle threw 104 pitches tonight.


TheWorstYear

Mahle was at 100+.


[deleted]

He did let him go over 100. 105 to be exact.


IamSamBellToo

It’s one thing if one guy has a poor outing from the pen. It’s another thing entirely when every goddamn arm they bring in can’t get get guys out. That’s how this season has felt. They all suck in succession. They feed off each other. I hate it.


[deleted]

I’m not gonna get upset or try to blame anyone. Just absolute shit luck all around.


HawksFan003

Yeah I agree every move made was something I probably would’ve done so can’t blame bell


punkrockabilly

Best pinch hitter in baseball, no matter what he does here.


TheRealJalil

I don’t think he’s far from being a top 3 catcher in baseball.


punkrockabilly

Agreed, next year? Watch out league.


allegedrc4

I believe in TySteve


steadyfast102

I fucking hate that I love this team so much


SquadPoopy

Like what do you even do if you're David Bell at this point. Your top relief pitcher just came back from an extended injury and immediately gets injured again in literally 5 pitches, your entire bullpen is about as consistent as Ohio weather, and the 2 players you have to play a key infield position can't hit. The fact we're where we are is a goddamn miracle.


bearcats22_

[me rn](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6dQuwS5roE)


JoeyVottoBangs

Bring back the fucking Pirates and Marlins No more teams over .500 FFS


DG-turf

I would like to apologize for my impulse post within a rival thread, did not realize that was against the rules, it wasn’t anything provocative he just didn’t like it


RedsModerator

### Pitching Substitution Pitching Change: Josh Hader replaces Devin Williams, batting 9th.


JoeyVottoBangs

This will be a sweep. Get the brooms out.


LastRuneUser

Get out of this sub


TheRealJalil

Dude you are really great at this trolling thing!


[deleted]

Bullpens been pretty fucking good the past few weeks. Shit like this happens. Just a badddd overall night


jareda33

What are we doing…? We were up 4-1 in the 7th. How is just so automatic that the bullpen is so terrible? Especially against good teams?


joethecrow23

1 pitch out you say? Dude if the Reds can somehow take the lead and Garrett comes back out and wins the game I’ll fucking die of laughter


elchamps

This is the most pain I’ve felt all year. So bad for the old mental health. I just wish I could be numb to it. But after 20 years I don’t think I’ll ever reach that point.


joethecrow23

I don’t know, the one against the Padres where the Reds went off on Melancon to go up 4-2 in the top of the ninth only for the bullpen to go double, homer, double, homer for the walkoff in the bottom was probably worse.


SirDukeIII

That was our most exciting game all year bar none


ek1992osu

Reds pitching in innings 1-6: Fantastic Reds pitching in innings 7-9: You better have a monster lead..


Sp8craft

It feels like we are going to be another one game playoff team this year…


steadyfast102

If we’re fucking lucky


Joey_Rogers

Get the brooms out boys


elchamps

okay pal


punkrockabilly

Nice hanging with y'all tonight. Was a very fun positive thread for the most part. We will try again tomorrow.


joelernst

Well hopefully the bullpen gets it out of their system and remembers how to get batters out for game 2 and 3. Would love to see the shoe on the other foot for once


JoeyVottoBangs

The reds bullpen fucks


TheBerlinWaller

Wong has had our number all night. Busy doing some soldering work but I'm getting tired of hearing the cheers and his name. LOL


whosline07

*all year


TheBerlinWaller

True


ShrlyYouCantBSerious

Time to go back to my Ken burns documentary. We’ll get ‘em tomorrow, goodnight comrades.


TheBigLemanski

For some reason I got Ken Burns mixed with Ken Ham in my head and was concerned.


ShrlyYouCantBSerious

No lol I’m watching the one on Country Music.


cilich8

Feel bad for Antone, rooting for dodgers. Bullpen has been super solid the last month. Get them tomorrow.


steadyfast102

Fuck this bullpen


rolmega

Fuck this ~~bullpen~~ ownership group. FTFY


ryanthepostmaster

If the Padres win I’m gonna punch myself in the dick all night instead of going to bed.


[deleted]

AG, this is what the reds think of you. Realize you suck bro


[deleted]

[удалено]


SomewhereAggressive8

A lot of Brewers comments are talking shit about reds fans because of shit like this. And it’s justified on their end when you do that.


DG-turf

If you read it I really wasn’t trying to rile anyone up. I’ve learned my lesson. my bad


SomewhereAggressive8

All good, lesson learned! 👍🏻


EffectiveCycle

Dude don't do that. It got us in trouble the last Brewers series.


DG-turf

Didn’t know. My bad g wasn’t even trying to stir anything up.


ryerocco

Busch league and embarassing


ottovyeoj

Mods are we still banning for antagonizing in other teams subs? Cuz we should.


Rapture00

We have issued 3 bans of varying length thus far in the previous week for being a shithead in other MLB subs.


excoriator

Yeah, it happens.


TheWorstYear

Stay out of their thread


DG-turf

Didn’t realize it was an issue my bad. Didn’t even say anything crazy he came at me


joethecrow23

It ain’t over yet with Tucker, TySteve(I assume), and Aquino due up but that was not good


Fedor1

The biggest dick punch isn’t gonna be losing Antone, it’s not gonna be losing this game, it’s gonna be seeing Doolittle back in the bullpen.


RedsModerator

### Pitching Substitution Pitching Change: Amir Garrett replaces Luis Cessa, batting 8th, replacing pitcher Luis Cessa.


TheRealJalil

AG STOKED dude hasn’t been out there in two weeks… this is kinda perfect, really. Let the dog outta the cage!


TroutCreekOkanagan

It’s over til I say it’s over! - Ryan “notebook” Gosling


dabird777

Welp. Don't use Cessa for 8,000 years, this is what you get


SquadPoopy

Go Dodgers, keep them Pads down!


GlutenFreeFratBoy

Omg hi AG lmfao


DG-turf

Well that just blows. Hello ag


Joey_Rogers

Jesus Christ how does the bullpen just suck so much fucking ass


jeffkay62

Uh, Mr. Doolittle? Are you there?


HawksFan003

Giannis haunts my dreams bro. I like him but he haunts all my dreams. First he beats my team the the playoffs then becomes part owner of my favorite teams rival. What next ?


EffectiveCycle

As a UD fan I want to like Giannis because of Kostas, but this isn't helping


TheWorstYear

Garret, no one wants to watch you hop.


jimnantzstie

Hahahhahah it’s almost impossible for this many guys to all be this bad all on one team


JohnnyC908

Buddy, let me tell you about a team over in Baltimore...


JStout77

6 run givin up in 2 innings by our bullpen. Pathetic


ek1992osu

Pack it up for the night. God can we stop giving up so many runs after the 5th inning already?? This fucking team..


LastRuneUser

Ggs boys, on to the next one


Alex8796

That would be the game


JoeyVottoBangs

My balls hurt


cincinnentian

Well shit


Saul_Teaload

Welp I don't do it often but I believe I'm calling it a night. See y'all tomorrow


pengals12

Lol goodnight


urbanfervor

...... Fuck


JStout77

Bout to ram my head through a wall.


Colin_Bowell

Their ball park still looks like a prison inside. Hideous park.


whosline07

It's really cool from the outside.


jloadin3

what a tough way to lose a 4-1 lead 😭😭😭


NobesTheSavage

This game hurts so bad


belmontbreak

Yikess


Hambone721

G'night y'all. We'll get it tomorrow.


Low_Newspaper3533

And that’ll do it


liberatedtech68

Cool. I’m fine.


[deleted]

It just sucks that this shit has to happen THE LITERAL ONE TIME Mikey Biceps has broken down all season.


TheWorstYear

STL lost to Detroit. Thats good.


joethecrow23

Thank god holy fuck You can’t walk him in the 9 hole there lmao


SomewhereAggressive8

So we’ve already DFA’d Doolittle. Who comes up now?


[deleted]

My guess would be Lodolo.


joethecrow23

They got Tony, Sims, and Hoffman still but that homer probably means it won’t matter


SomewhereAggressive8

I meant going forward who do we call up to replace Antone. I’m assuming he’ll be back on the IL after this.


TroutCreekOkanagan

I can dig it. Banger incoming!!


NobesTheSavage

You weren’t wrong...


rolmega

Reds' bullpen redefining the phrase "innings of work" tonight.


DG-turf

Why the fuck did he swing.. I’ll take it


GlutenFreeFratBoy

I love the idea that Suarez is on our bench nowadays just as a Josh Hader specialist


3rdrich

Just hoping Tejay still can pitch after this… hoping for a good recovery and for him to be back at 100. Dude is a gamer.


TheRealJalil

Fun fact, JBJ is like the only guy below Shogo in hitting metrics in all of baseball this year. He’s been BAAAAD.


gdlmaster

He’s been weirdly efficient against the Reds though.


liberatedtech68

Which means shogo has only been BAAAD


steadyfast102

And we’re about to walk him


elchamps

Wonder if Brewers fans would cheer if Hader came out and threw five pitches and then tore his UCL


SomewhereAggressive8

Probably not. And you can bet your life there would be some Reds fans cheering it if it happened. Check out their GDT. Every comment was about how bad they felt for Antone.


ottovyeoj

We've got commenters calling Rowdy a piece of shit for the crime of batting while Tejay got hurt. There's real toxicity in this sub since the team got good.


SomewhereAggressive8

I didn’t see those comments but that’s really stupid. This is my first year in this sub so I kind of figured that’s just the way it is. But yeah, looking at the Brewers sub, they seem to be a way more positive bunch.


[deleted]

Yeah, let’s not entertain that idea please.


Handy_Dandy_

I just switched from Spectrum to Cincy Bell and now I can’t stream the game to my Chromecast from MLB.tv on my VPN. Does Cincy Bell prevent that?


TheWorstYear

No but David Bell does


allegedrc4

No, but if you switched routers, something might have changed that is causing it to not work.


Handy_Dandy_

I did switch routers. It’s still streaming on my phone, but when I try to cast to my Chromecast it shuts down. What could it be?


allegedrc4

No idea, I know Chromecast uses mDNS so it could be some issue with multicast being blocked on your router/its firewall. Sorry I can't be of more help, consumer routers do all kinds of screwy stuff. If it's CB's router you can probably get support from them.


Handy_Dandy_

lol but I feel like I can’t call Cincy Bell and be like “Hey, I was getting around blackouts with a VPN but now it’s not working. Can you help?”


allegedrc4

Just say you're having issues casting to your Chromecast. Although I honestly doubt customer support cares that much. Can you cast anything with the VPN disabled?


Handy_Dandy_

Yes, I’ve casted Hulu without the VPN on


allegedrc4

Weird. I honestly have no idea then, sorry. I still might consider trying customer support.


Handy_Dandy_

Gotcha. Well thanks for the help anyways. I just hope I can still watch Reds games without paying like $80/month for cable.
