Re: Wins comparison/Upcoming schedule comparison

I kept asking what's worse? Losing against bad teams or losing against good teams? It's interesting and a valid point for playoff banter but it doesn't matter in the regular season. Teams needs wins to reach the playoffs and a W against the Marlins equals one against the Cardinals.
Reds played the Marlins while Stanton was floundering offensively. He may have it going when the Pirates and Cardinals play them.
And the better teams might hit the skids about the time the Reds play them.
You never know what could happen.
