What are the chances that all four of those happen? The end of September is a lousy time to be figuring out what's wrong with your No. 1 starter, trying to fix your closer and finding out why your best player isn't the same as he was post injury. Not to mention that little problem of the entire team reverting to its weak-offense ways with Votto back in the lineup.
