With the Reds set to begin a six-game road trip starting tonight, what do you think their record will be?

Keep in mind the probables for both series:

6/23 @ TOR: Owings (4-7, 4.50 ERA) vs. Tallet (4-4, 4.68 ERA)
6/24 @ TOR: Arroyo (8-5, 5.16 ERA) vs. Richmond (5-4, 3.79 ERA)
6/25 @ TOR: Cueto (6-4, 2.55 ERA) vs. Cecil (2-1, 4.26 ERA)
6/26 @ CLE: Harang (5-6, 3.65 ERA) vs. Ohka (0-1, 4.70 ERA)
6/27 @ CLE: TBA(Bailey?) vs. Sowers (1-5, 5.95 ERA)
6/28 @ CLE: Owings (4-7, 4.50 ERA) vs. Huff (2-2, 7.09 ERA)

With the return of Votto I hope our offense takes off tonight, regardless of the number of lefties that we will face on this trip (Tallet, Cecil, Sowers, Huff).

I think the Reds win four games on this trip, taking both series 2-1.

I predict Willy Tavares gets 20 more ABs than Chris Dickerson and that Ryan Hanigan gets 0

Dickerson in the lineup tonight in the 9 spot, while Hanigan starts the game on the bench...amazing how much better the lineup looks with Votto back in the lineup...I wouldn't be surprised to see the Reds get hot on this trip :thumbup:

I think we go 2-4. Swept at Toronto but win 2 of 3 in Cleveland. Votto alone isn't enough to save this hapless offense.

swept in toronto.

And maybe win 1 to 2 from cleveland.

But against toronto. Im expecting a good butt beating.

Every game that Taveras starts we lose, except for getting lucky once.

Every game that Taveras doesn't start we win them all.

I think we're crossing into beating a dead horse territory RE: Taveras in this thread.

Also, I just saw that we're at 34-34 and about to go under .500 for the first time since about April.

Yep.
It is certainly going to take more than Votto. All of these guys who are 3 for 39 and 4 for 48 are going to have to turn it around or Joey will not make much difference.

Got that one wrong. Taveras didn't start and we still lost.

Hanigan not starting is the common connection between these first two games.

Let's say he starts tomorrow and the REDS win. Coincidence?

Didn't Bailey go against Sowers last year?

It would help if Hanigan played and Dickerson played and Votto played at the same time.
