The Cincinnati Reds went from a team that was not included in the MLB to a midfield team recently.
This is some progress, at least, considering how bad they looked in the first few weeks of the season.
However, they are a very bad baseball team, probably one of the worst teams in the league.
Because of their terrible 3-22 start, they still hold MLB’s worst record at 12-29.
Three teams are equally bad: the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals with a 14-27 record and the Washington Nationals 14-29.
The Reds have recently begun to make at least some of the crime, especially in home games.
But they can’t string a hot streak together.
“The Reds offense has scored 4+ runs in 11 straight home games, the 6th longest streak in the franchise’s history (since 1901) and their longest streak since 2018. Sadly, they have only scored 5-6 in these 11 games,” said statistician Joel. Lukhaupt Tweet.

The Reds’ nightmare season continues
It is unfortunate that most of these 11 games did not contain only anti-offense in their pitching.
At home, the Reds have a 5-10 record: bad, but probably not scandalous.
On the street, however, they are terrible at 7-19.
With truly talented and healthy everyone, they are probably not the worst team in baseball, but they failed to show what it takes to consistently win a game.
The 2022 campaign is not their year, there are many reasons and circumstances that go off the field.
It’s nice to know that their offense can put together at least some standard at-bat.
As incredible as it sounds, if the Reds catch fire, they can still theoretically dream about a post-season spot because it’s too early.
But they don’t have the talent on the field to make such an impossible comeback.
