The Reds have had 58 20 win seasons in their history. Last being Danny Jackson's 23 in 1988 and Tom Browning's 20 in 1985. Then there's only 1 in the 70's and 5 in the 60's. In other words it's an extremely rare occurance in our history/lifetimes. Assuming he wins today he's at 14 with about 12 starts left. If he goes .500 he'll get it.

I know wins aren't a great way to judge a pitcher, but when you near 20, it's a pretty good judge of the season you and your team have had.

This is a very cool season to witeness.

If he goes .500 he can't have any no decisions. I still would bet he gets to 20 assuming 12 more starts.

Given his number of decisions per start - I'd say if the Reds give him support at a reasonable level he should win 21 or 22 games this season. Outside shot at 23.

I was really hoping Bailey would win his 10th the other night. He started out good and fell apart.

Leake and Arroyo should just concentrate on having a winning season.

Latos could get to 15 or more wins if he picks it up. So could Bailey.
