The Cincinnati Reds are a mess.
At this point, everybody knows what they did over the offseason: in their effort to cut costs, they got rid of important players such as Tucker Barnhart, Amir Garrett, Jesse Winker, Sonny Gray, Eugenio Suarez, and more; while failing to re-sign Nick Castellanos.
Fans, obviously, voiced their anger in their social media channels and networks: they didn’t like the fact that ownership took a team that was on the verge of contention and turned it into a rebuilding one, just to save money.
After the first couple of games of the season, Reds’ Chief Operating Officer Phil Castellini, the son of owner Bob Castellini, taunted fans who criticized them and urged them to sell the team.
“Well, where are you gonna go? Let’s start there. Sell the team to who? … What would you do with this team to have it be more profitable, make more money and compete more?,” he infamously said.
The Worst Team In Baseball
That pride is sure backfiring now, as the Reds have fallen into an ugly rut.
“Since Phil Castellini asked fans ‘where you gonna go?’ on Opening Day, the Reds have lost 8 straight games by a combined score of 53-18, and the team owns the worst record in baseball at 2-10,” Reds reporter Brandon Saho tweeted.

The Reds are the worst team in baseball by win-loss record, and have dropped their last eight games.
They have also lost nine of their last ten, and look clueless on the field.
The season will likely be a long one for Reds fans, sadly.
