What else can be said at this point? This season has been a farce.
An eight game losing streak is bad certainly, but it honestly wouldn't be time to panic if the Reds were losing tight games but still pitching and hitting well.
That's obviously not the case. The Reds are getting killed. And all we've seen is a swap of Joe Valentine for Ricky Stone. Unless he's got something big cooking, (which is theoretically possible), it's becoming increasingly clear that Dan O'Brien is in a little over his head.
