    "Have been'" and "are" are not the same things.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    From an article on Yahoo:

    The 2012 Reds were road warriors with a 47-34 record and the 2010 team was a solid road team (42-39). If the 2013 Reds can't start stringing together wins on the road, the 2013 Reds may start to look a lot more like the 2011 team that fell flat on its face with a losing season and a road record befitting of a losing team (37-44).
    Road record is critical. It's awful hard to win the division if we lose 2/3rds of the time on the road.

    Small sample sizes in baseball are meaningless.

    I haven't even been watching them lately. Too frustrating.

    I have a bad feeling about this season for some reason.

    We've already won two more games this April (13) then last April (11), and still two days left in the month. Not worried one bit.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
