    Two of these starts were the guys at the end of the rotation, too.

    This weekend vs. the Suds Duds:

    0-4 Fire up the fire sale. Start auctioning off the short-timers.
    1-3 Don't flush yet (but keep your hand on the pull-chain).
    2-2 Treading water - I'll take it.
    3-1 Getting really interesting up in here.
    4-0 Start burning up the phone lines hittin' up anyone and everyone for a stud starter (rentals included)

    The problem is that there is no predictability on which one of those it will be...

    Dom out of paper cups. That is a perfect symbol of this team. Workmanlike, but plenty of swag to go with it.

    More and more as the season progresses, the narrative seems to be that the Reds are improved over the last few years, but they just can't get a win streak going to save their lives.

    I know the Latino contingency of the club is strong. But sadly they can’t compete with the “If we’re drinking champagne from paper cups I’m there” Dietrich contingency.

    Coming back to earth a bit, as expected. 5-2/ 4 under.

    Most would’ve taken a split on the road before the series started.

    6-4/ 5 under.

    This team keeps baiting us along with possibilities at 5.5 back, with the chance to make it 4.5 today.
