Re: 2009 Scoreboard Watching
The Reds are 37-37 and 2.5 games out of first place despite:
1. Willy Taveras and his sub-.600 OPS playing everyday over Chris Dickerson
2. Joey Votto missing 30 games
3. Edwin Encarnacion missing two months
4. Edinson Volquez missing a month and a half (and more)
IMO, if the Reds had remained relatively healthy, they would be in first place right now.
Also, consider this: The Reds are 0-6 against the Padres (32-41) and Royals (32-42). Win just two of those games and the Reds would be 39-35 and only a half game behind the Brewers for first place.
I miss Adam Dunn.
