Reds record on:
May 1, 2006:18-8
June 1, 2006:29-24
July 1, 2006:44-37
Aug 1, 2006:55-51
Thats a 44-52 record since April by my math.
So don't have unrealistic expectations. A game or two over .500 might very well win the WC but thats more due to the state of the NL than the Reds being a good team.
Looks like they did good in June as well...
