Have I been living in a cave or is this new news? This is the first I've heard of it.

The opponents
The Reds' May schedule (records entering Tuesday):
3-4 at Colorado (15-11)
5-7 at Arizona (13-13)
9-11 Washington (8-18)
12-14 Philadelphia (11-14)
16-18 at Pittsburgh (7-20)
19-21 at Detroit (17-9)
22-24 Milwaukee (15-11)
26-28 Arizona (13-13)
29-31 at Chicago Cubs (14-10)

Granted, any team in baseball can get hot for a few weeks, but this is not exactly a killer schedule, right? At least not until May 19, when the Reds travel to face the better-than-expected Detroit Tigers.

Plus, the Reds are 12-4 this season against teams on this list they've already played.

The Reds also play the Pirates in the National Baseball Hall of Fame Game, Cooperstown, N.Y. The exhibition is scheduled for May 15.

I remember it being announced last winter. I just couldn't remember when it was. The month of May looks very good. Twenty six games and I think an 18-8 record is not out the realm of reality. In fact I think it's imperative they have this type of month because a very tough month of June lurks. IMO a so-so month of May and a bad June will equal a very long last three months of the season.

I'm guessing they'll bring up a minor league arm to throw the HOF game, so that'll be good to see one of our prospects or a veteran trying to make it back.

BTW, that ball park in Cooperstown is a very nice field (you've probably seen it in the movie A League of Their Own).
