I'm glad you mentioned the "Last 10" thing because I've thought that the entire season. With the Reds, it seems they're always in the 7-3. 6-4, 5-5, 4-6 range, or at least since late May when they reached 15 games over .500 for the first time. They've basically been a .500 team since then, because they just don't have the consistency on offense to go on an extended tear. They will go as far as their pitching and defense will take them.
Good thread, by the way.
