  1. I’m so happy Bryan Price didn’t use Chappy for a 2 inning outing last night so he could pitch today! I am so tired of that guy and his nonsense.

  2. Again, Cozart hitting in a 1 run game in the 9th inning. Why? So he can intentionally make an out.

  3. Price’s smartest decision of the week was the result of his player not being able to do what Price wanted.

  4. Look, if you can’t hit; you need to be able to bunt. One or the other.

  5. Two leadoff hits, and they didn’t move. I’ve seen this movie.

  6. And there is your 2014 reds – first 2 men on and they don’t move because the reds are the worst fundamentally sound team in MLB – pack it in boys , it’s over – don’t rush back Brandon , no use

  7. Unbelievable. We had 2 out there on base. Tying run on second with no outs and we can’t score. Frustrating is an understatement

  8. Santiago wasn’t even close to getting a bunt down the first two times. So … have him bunt again. Automatic out, runners don’t advance, rally killed against a very hittable pitcher.

  9. Well after the first 120 games the reds are at .500 With 42 more games. I just don’t know.

  10. At least the crowd got free pizza. And we won the Ohio cup. And, really, isn’t that the important thing?

    • What does he DO all day, anyway? This is something I’ve never understood.

  11. I have never see a manager this incapable of making a correct decision late in a close game. Bryan Price is as inept as they come.

  12. On to Colorado and a sweep of the Rockies. Hah! Well, actually I guess you never know. Go Reds! Adios Amigos.

    • But…he used Chapman in a non-save situation. See? He thinks outside the box.

    • Some of his in-game straregy is just brutal – really thought he would be better than this – just has not transpired into results – these one run loses are boardering on insanity
