Since I pick up the Reds, I watched most of the series. I like Chase, but those errors continue to mount. The Legend has all but disappeared. Overbay had a good series defensively, but is close to a waste when batting.

Who could have any doubt that hitters should be a priority for this team? The bullpen is above average! The A’s lefty would seem to be a good pickup if the cost isn’t high. One earned run given up in 3 games vs. one of the best hitting teams in the league. Pirates cross the plate FOUR times in 3 games. Give credit to the Reds for pitching well, but if Presley, Walker and Cutch are shut down there’s not much left.
