Reds still suck and the Knicks get horny

I have officially stopped rooting for the Reds.  Not only am I not rooting for them I’ve found myself rooting for the bullpen to blow another lead.  What the hell?  For the first time in my life not only do I not care if they win but I have resorted to rooting for them to be the worst team ever.  Well the team might not be the worst yet but the bullpen for sure has a chance.  SI ran a story highlighting just how bad they are.  Take a look at the numbers SI put together.

team year era
Phillies 1930 8.05
Browns 1936 6.88
Browns 1950 6.81
Athletics 1936 6.61
Pirates 1930 6.49
Reds 2016 6.46
Phillies 1929 6.38
Yankees 1925 6.24
Phillies 1938 6.16
Devil Rays 2007 6.16

The only other team on the list that played in my Mom’s lifetime are the 2007 Devil Rays and that team finished 66-96.

Seriously, what is there to root for?  Their best player is the most unlikable superstar alive.  BP is a dick and that is putting it nicely.  Bruce is biding his time until he is traded and they don’t have a pitcher that can stay healthy or get some one out when they are.  Good thing there are plenty of great craft beers to choose from when you visit GABP this summer.

On a lighter note, The New York Knicks named Jeff Hornacek as their new head coach yesterday.  I know many of us don’t care about Jeff or the Knicks for that matter but I do have to tip my hat to the New York Daily News for this mornings headline.
