Agree. Getting out of this tough stretch 5-5 (maybe even 4-6) would be huge.
Will be a great test for the starting staff as the current 4.32 team ERA and the other associated key splits (K/9, K/BB, WHIP, OPS) are actually respectable (giddy by Reds fans standards).
The offense may need to carry 2-3 of the games as these teams can rake, otherwise it could get ugly over the next week.
The hope is that the 2006 Reds team is a bit of an enigma and hopefully they'll once again step it up a notch against the Sox and Mets over the next week.
