Paul Daugherty column on struggling Reds and the upcoming Bengals season

Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher Brad Brach (47) delivers during the ninth inning of a baseball game against the Chicago Cubs, Sunday, July 4, 2021, at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.

If you want to drive yourself nuts as a sports fan, knee-jerk react your way through a baseball season. You’ll be asking for padded walls by August. That’s a fact.                 

Snap judgments don’t play when the games happen six days out of seven. Overreacting is what radio guys do. It’s part of their job description. At least they get paid for it. 

The Reds lost again at Wrigley Wednesday night. Jason Heyward, a great defensive outfielder but a career OK hitter, had one homer in June, one in July and none in August. He has two in the past four days in September, including the 3-run smash last night to beat the Reds in 10 innings.
