    It's a made up sample size that doesn't mean anything.
    I did it too when I posted the team's record for July and August.

    BearcatShane is 100% correct. The Reds are 2-1/2 games out if first with five weeks to go.

    That's all that matters

I would have expected better, but it's good enough to be in the division hunt.

    Fortunately St Lewie is only 39-35 in the same stretch (Pit 42-32) and the rest of the serious NL contenders (Giants, Nats and DBacks) have largely fallen apart over the same period. ONly the Dodgers and Braves have been crushing it over the last ~75-80 games.

    74-57 given the injuries is a bit disappointing after 35-21, but all in all an acceptable position. They've got a chance to win the division going into the last month with a wildcard all but secured given the weak NL field. Not a great season and certainly not the one we expected, but fortunately no one wants to run and hide with the division.

    Looking into the crystal ball, I think the Reds catch the Pirates over the last week but can't quite catch the Cardinals.
    So, it seems you are arguing that the timing of accumulating wins and losses is more important than the overall record. For instance, the Reds were a mere 32-27 as of June 9, 2012 after losing two straight to the Tigers. They were 44-37 at the halfway mark. They had the hot streak after the Votto injury which built up most of their above .500 mark, then went back to "medicore" ball. That resulted in 97 wins.

    The moral of the story: Winning baseball is long periods of .500 ball with spurts of winning streaks and minimizing spurt losing streaks. There is nothing mediocre about being 17 over.

    The base running errors need to stop. Please make them stop.

    Big series starts tonight. I'm excited to get things going!

    Moving time is now officially stuck in 5pm rush hour traffic on I-95.

    Moving time should get back into the swing of things tonight. Jeff Manship starting for Colorado means the Reds really should win tonight and move a game closer to either Pittsburgh or St. Louis.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I wouldn't count on the Reds doing much in Denver to gain ground. Teams with good offenses are the Reds' kryptonite.

    The only moving the Reds are apparently going to do is on a treadmill, staying right at .500
    like they have since late May. Walt's moving over from his right side to his left side while
    sleeping the summer away.
