This week on the podcast, Joel Luckhaupt and I try to decide whether there are any reasons to be optimistic about the rest of this Cincinnati Reds season. (The answer, we think, is “yes.”) We also decided to ignore optimism for a while, and instead turned to realism. It’s a roller-coaster ride of an episode, believe me.

(FYI: just when we thought we had the technical difficulties ironed out, they popped up again. Don’t think it’s too distracting, but you’ve been warned.)
