The Reds almost made me retire my fandom today

Today started out a day that any Reds fan loves. A 9-0 lead in the 2nd inning at Wrigley Field.  As a Reds fan, I should have known that even a 9-0 lead isn't safe, let alone the lead in Chicago.  As I sat there watching home run after home run after home run, it made me more frustrated with this Reds organization and where their future is.  They have traded away star players like Volquez, Cueto, Phillips, Chapman, Bruce, and Frazier, with NO return on investment.  This team blowing the lead was going to be the last straw for this Reds fan. 1034
