The Big Red Machine these 2016 Cincinnati Reds are not. My advice: Stay away ... far away.
I tried to make John Lamb work. Two starts later I've learned my lesson, a costly lesson at that as Lamb gave up nine earned runs in 9 2/3 innings on 13 hits and six walks. He's back on the fantasy baseball waiver wire where I should have left him.
Raisel Iglesias is promising, but he's on the DL with a shoulder injury. Dan Straily has pitched surprising well, but he and the rest of Reds fill-in starters are not worth taking a price on especially given they're backed by one of the worst bullpens of all-time.
It's either fade the Reds, or stay off their games because this a team that just can't be backed.
