Agree, easily the most difficult stretch of the year and much better opposing strating pitching on deck. Reds are clobbering the weak teams, I think the quality of opposition will bring up the level of the Reds on the field play.
With the Reds starting staff, not too worried although this is not a good stretch to enter with the current bullpen issues.
This is easily a WC team worst case barring something unforeseen, a complete meltdown due to more injuries piling up. The club has no depth left in AAA to shore up any position or the bullpen.
