Reds' rebuilding priority: Fix an historically bad bullpen

CINCINNATI (AP) During the fifth inning of the Reds' final game, their new general manager held an impromptu session with reporters at the back of the press box. Dick Williams listed the items on their must-do list.

The bullpen was at the top.

Reds relievers were historically bad in 2016, the overriding factor in another lost season. As if anyone needed a reminder, the bullpen blew a lead with two outs and none on in the ninth inning Sunday as the Chicago Cubs rallied for a fitting 7-4 win in front of thousands of blue-clad fans.
