    It's moving time

    The next three weeks should be a good time for the Reds to make a move if they are going to do so.

    Code:
    Fri, Aug 9  vs San Diego	Arroyo (9-9)	Cashner (8-5)	
    Sat, Aug 10 vs San Diego 	Cingrani (5-1)	Ross (2-5)	
    Sun, Aug 11 vs San Diego	Leake (10-5)	Kennedy (4-8)	
    
    Mon, Aug 12 @ Cubs		Latos (11-3)	Rusin (1-1)
    Tue, Aug 13 @ Cubs              Bailey (6-10)	Samardzija (6-10)	
    Wed, Aug 14 @ Cubs
    
    Thu, Aug 15 @ Milwaukee
    Fri, Aug 16 @ Milwaukee
    Sat, Aug 17 @ Milwaukee
    Sun, Aug 18 @ Milwaukee
    
    Mon, Aug 19 vs Arizona
    Tue, Aug 20 vs Arizona
    Wed, Aug 21 vs Arizona
    Thu, Aug 22 vs Arizona
    
    Fri, Aug 23 vs Milwaukee
    Sat, Aug 24 vs Milwaukee
    Sun, Aug 25 vs Milwaukee

    St Louis has 6 vs the Cubs, 3 with Pittsburgh, 3 with Milwaukee, and 4 with Atlanta.
    Pittsburgh finishes up against Miami then has 3 with Colorado, 3 with St. Louis, 3 with Arizona, 3 at San Diego and 4 at San Francisco on a West coast trip, before 3 with Milwaukee. St. Louis and Pitt then meet again at the end of the month.

    Neither St. Louis nor Pitt has it too rough but the Pirates seem to have the toughest of the 3 on paper.

    On the Wild Card side, Arizona has 3 with the Mets, 3 with Baltimore, 3 @ Pittsburgh, 4 @ the Reds, 3 @ Philadelphia. This seems the hardest of the bunch.

    If not already, that series against the D'backs can pretty much solidify a playoff spot.

    This next stretch will decide if we win the division.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    Reds take two of first three and have picked up two games on Pitts and one on St. Louis and Arizona.

    Re: It's moving time

    If they're going to make a run, this looks like the time it needs to happen.

    What would they need to legitimately get back in the division hunt? A 14-3 run? Maybe 13-4 with some help from others?
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Re: It's moving time

    NOW is the time for sure. We got Broxton and Hanigan back, we get Luddy back in a few days, MUST make a move now. Those 4 games we gave away out west hurt, we'd be only 2 games back behind Pitt and we'd 2 games up on the Cards. They'd be feeling the pressure even more. 6 games out of 1st and 2 behind the Cards now. Sweeping the Pads would help, then putting it on the Cubs would be sweet. This team really needs to reel off a winning streak like the Braves and Tigers.

    I think that's asking a bit much, because those streaks rarely happen. We just need to win each of these series and hopefully throw in a sweep or two. I think a bigger factor is the weight on the shoulders of the Pirates. I don't expect a collapse similar to last year's, but at some point they're going to start feeling that 20-year old monkey on their backs. Maybe around the time the D'backs come to town.

    Re: It's moving time

    If The Reds win every series that'll be a 10-4 streak. Doable, with only a little more offense.

    I think if we want to make a BIG move, sweeping the Cubs is important. We don't have to make a big move.

    Re: It's moving time

    Reds need a bat or several guys to heat up. They aren't going to reach escape velocity hitting like this.

    I think putting Ludwick in this lineup, and moving BP to leadoff or #2.....is going to make one heck of a difference. We know the pitching will show up, like the sun rises.....but it is time for some bats to star raking. Consistently.
