    some truth in what you say but 86 games is a pretty good chunk of this season --- I won't disagree that one can lie with numbers but having watched almost all of their games I feel like I've watched a .500 team except for a hot streak in May against poor teams.

    Now the Reds can't even beat bad teams.

    Swell.

    That's a feeling, not the truth. If one lives and dies with every game, then they're probably a .500 team.

    The truth, they're one of the best teams in the league. It doesn't matter when you win, just that you win.

    Even though they're 47-24 vs. "bad teams?"

    Re: Cincinnati-Colorado 9/1/13

    Are we still debating whether a team that is currently .555 is really a .500 team?

    The point is valid -- for the last 2/3 of this season they are a .500 team - and yes for the entire season they are better --- I see regression -- you may not.

    Again, every team is a .500 team for some arbitrary stretch.

    Fortunately, they play for the 162-game season, not some arbitrary stretch.

    Do you think they'll have a .500 record by the end of the season?

    I have no idea how that's trolling. If you say they're a .500 team, wouldn't their record be .500 at the end of the season?

    but I never said the bold part in the way you imply --- call it what you want.

    so why go there?

    For the last 2/3 of the season they are .500 team and you see regression.

    But you're not saying you think they're a .500 team?
