well the reds can't go .500 this year but i do believe that joey dingers is back baby!  i think he has an outside shot at fifteen

So the Bengals are 2-0.... who da thunk it?

If they can win one of the next 2 away games (at Carolina and at Atlanta), we may have something to talk about....

i'm liking this strategy of needing a forced fumble recovery to ensure a victory, a victory that shouldn't have been in doubt.  i just knew that they weren't going to play a complete game.  not that you need to to win, but just score another touchdown.  just one.  the field goals will always come.  am i at least feeling confident about this year's bengals?  i'm always confident about the bengals

since it's pretty silly not to at this point, the reds oughta extend harvey and might as well gennett.  trade billy, move pereza to center and hope he commits less than 20 errors (which i think is a lot), bring up senzel.  i don't know if he can play short but mr twenty errors and his twenty errors is our current shortstop.  i don't get to watch the games but i listen on the radio, is he bad defensively?  and we need to sign a quality free agent starter.  i'd be happy with 85-90 wins next year, if everyone stays mostly healthy

How the fuck do you figure the Reds can win 85-90 games last season with essentially the same lineup that will struggle to win 70 games this year?

there were quite a few injuries which set the team back a bit, especially the pitching.  i don't think i'm being too unrealistic.  while i am counting on a return of joey dingers, a consistent scooter, a healthy winker, and the potential of nick senzel,   the offense is still better than average.  yes, pitching is a most glaring weakness.  i don't know if all those reliable bullpen weapons will be available next year, if it is, it's just ironing out the rotation.  homer should be let go, finnegan's too familiar with the dl, as is disco, sal romano probably won't pan out (maybe relief).  so that leaves luis castillo, tyler mahle, maybe cody reed, some others, and potentially matt harvey.  not sure what the free agent pitching market is going to be like but castellini said he's committed to upping the payroll.  that's why i think we're one or two quality starters away from having the type of season i mentioned

damn mixon's out 2-4 weeks.  played thru an injury which requires arthroscopic surgery.  he's been balling.  still like gio though. he's solid.  gonna probably be a lot of dalton next week.  fuck yeah 

edit

the past two bengal games have been victories of the score bengals 34, opponent 23.  and the forced fumble at the end to seal it!  is this a team of destiny or what?!
