CINCINNATI -- It wasn’t supposed to go down like this. The Reds were going to be world beaters this year.
New manager Brian Price was the missing link in what promised to be an uninterrupted chain of success for the local nine. That lofty expectation was based largely on the assumption that Joey Votto would return to his MVP form or something akin to it. That Brandon Phillips would have another All-Star/Gold Glove season and Jay Bruce would replicate his 2012 success.
The team’s three highest paid players would prove they were worthy of their millions.
Not even close.
