    Um, I have always struggled with that "new math" you young whippersnappers use, but if we were 20-4 in the last 24 then we win a game... How does it go to 20-5 instead of 21-4?

    Corky was hotter than a grease pit before he went down.

    Phillips, Choo, Frazier and Heisey are all still due for some big weeks/months.

    Should also be a decent amount of rest days on the schedule as well, although there isn't an off day now for a while.

    The young whippersnappers do not do math after midnight, apparently
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Re: It's moving time

    7-3 now. Won 9 of 12. Hopefully the Reds put a fork into the Diamondbacks over the next 4.

    David Schoenfeld is saying over at ESPN that the Reds are now the team to beat in the Central:
    http://espn.go.com/blog/sweetspot/po...-in-nl-central
    Right now, the Reds are hot, the Pirates are scuffling and the Cardinals are the team everyone bet on at the All-Star break. But it's anybody's race to win, and while all three will likely make the playoffs (the Reds are five games up on the Diamondbacks for the second wild-card slot), only one of the three can win the division. Let's ask some key questions and predict our winner.

    Who has the toughest schedule remaining? Here are each team's remaining series against teams currently above .500:

    Pirates: STL (3), at STL (3), at TEX (3), CIN (3), at CIN (3)
    Cardinals: ATL (4), CIN (3), at PIT (3), at CIN (3), PIT (3)
    Reds: ARI (4), at STL (3), STL (3), LAD (3), at PIT (3), PIT (3)

    They all have home-and-home series with each other, so no advantage gained there. The Reds have one extra series against a quality opponent, but one big edge they have is 24 of their remaining 38 games are at home and they are 37-20 at home, 33-34 on the road. The Cardinals have a tough slate ahead, beginning Thursday when they have consecutive series against the Braves, Reds, Pirates, Reds and Pirates, but their final 19 games are against current losing teams.

    Advantage: Reds and Cardinals. That season-ending stretch should play into the Cards' favor while the Pirates have to finish up at Cincinnati and also have more road games remaining.
    ...

    Enough … make a pick already: The Reds have been the third wheel in this party all season, but they're finally on a good roll, winning nine of 12. This is the time of season when rotation depth plays a huge factor, as legs get tired and arms get sore. I like the way Cincy's five guys are throwing right now, and I like all the home games the Reds have on their schedule.

    I'm picking the Reds now to win the division … putting the Pirates and Cardinals into six minutes of hell.

    I wanted six wins on that roadie, and they were one Chapman away from doing just that.

    This is one sick, sick race.

    Look FORWARD!!!! Our rear-view mirror doesn't mean squat! One game at a time, one series at a time and one WORLD series at a time. We'll get there. :O)
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Re: It's moving time

    Tonight's game vs Corbin precedes a stretch of facing 4 straight starters with a 4.50+ ERA. Hopefully Cingrani can win the pitchers duel and the Reds role on. I was going to cancel my cable, but this is too much fun!

    Re: It's moving time

    Arroyo has generally been a 2nd half pitcher...and he is rolling into the stretch in solid form. With Luddy coming around, Hani well rested, and Frazier heating up, he could easily get to 17 or 18 wins.

    If things continue on as they have since the ASB, I think he is the #2 guy for the playoffs. (I admit I am biased.)
