Last year on June 29th, the Reds were 42-34, and had a one game lead over the Pirates and 2,5 over the Cardinals. We've improved from a .553 winning percentage to .568 and still find ourselves 4.5 games behind the Pirates and 1.5 games behind the Cardinals. In the last 10 games, we're 3-7.
The Reds and the Cards have stunk lately. Cherry pick end points if you must. The Reds have gained on the Cards since the 2 teams played each other 3 weeks ago, see how easy that was.
On a bigger note, I sure hope Shelby Miller turns into a pumpkin soon. (The A's did their part) If he is dominant it will be a tough 6+ years for the Reds.
