DENVER – Everything that could go wrong for the Cincinnati Reds in the first three weeks of the season has gone wrong.
The Reds are off to a 3-19 start, the worst record through 22 games in franchise history and the worst by any MLB team since the 2003 Detroit Tigers. They’ve scored the second-fewest runs (67). The pitching staff’s ERA (6.15) is a full run higher than any other team. Their infield defense has converted the fewest number of ground balls into outs. Their run differential (negative-65) is the worst in baseball.
