Will fix, typo, sorry.Now, if Dusty consulted RZ, they might have that record. :)

LOL. By the way, made a few other corrections.

This time around, the worm turned a bit. More offense, less pitching. The pitching numbers were even worse than indicated, except Mr. Cueto got in under the wire of the 10 game spread.

I'd expect to see more of the same, more hitting, perhaps some further decline in pitching. I still think 3.56 is a bit optimistic for the Reds pitching. (This is just based on previous years; I'm not used to a mid-3s ERA for the team.)

So hopefully the offense will continue to improve. It's uncanny that the OPS v. lefties is now virtually identical to last year's excellent OPS number. The rub, of course, is hitting RHP. Some ways this can improve is for Bruce to get hot again; Rolen to make a good return (Frazier crushes lefties, Scott however can help against righties); a deal could be made for a lefty bat or a righty who hits RHP; or the team could just generally do better against righty pitching.

On the pitching side, some of the numbers surprised me. Arredondo, despite his walks, has some excellent numbers, Ks, BAA, only a 1.06 WHIP. Maybe he should have stayed in to face Fielder, as some suggested.

Leake and Bailey doing much better. But Latos really needs to pick things up. Maybe tonight.

It seems to me that the trends you are noting is typical in MLB, as pitching declines as the year goes on. Hot summer, long season, pitchers fading, injuries...
