    They literally haven't for 122 games. With the caveat that any team can snap off a 4-5 game run, even awful teams, you're 100% correct that consistency has not been the hallmark of this team. In particular, this pen doesn't seem capable of stacking quality 3-4 inning efforts on top of each other.

    Reds needed to win at least 9 vs the Cubs/Nats/Cards, they won 4.

    They split with the Cubs and Cards. That wasn’t terrible. Getting swept in DC was terrible.

    This thread should be called "maintaining the gap two days at a time."

    (note: LM mistakenly put the Padres at 2.5 out, but they're really 22.5 out)
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me
