    What will the Reds record be after 17 of 20 on the road?

    Reds are 4-2. What will their record be after the next 17 out of 20 on the road? I'll say they go 10-10 to be at 14-12. I hope it's much better.

    I think that the next games against Philly, Chicago, Atlanta and Houston will be a good test and indicator. In the 20 games I think the Reds will carry a .600 win pct. Which would be winning 12 of the 20.

    Agreed. I thought we'd split with the Cubs, though by beating Mitre and Maddux, not Wood. I thought we'd take 2 of 3 from the Phils. The damning part is that sans bullpen self-destruction, this 3-3 stretch *should* easily be 5-1. It's not a "what if" or "shoulda, woulda, coulda" scenario. It's a matter of stating that 4-0 leads with 2 outs in the bottom of the 7th can't turn into 6-4 losses, and 10-7 leads in the 8th can't turn into 11-10 losses. And, though we might not have rallied today, you can't stay within 2 runs into the 8th inning of a Jimmy Haynes start, and then lose 8-1.

    Even with a few bad starts in the stretch (Wilson, Harang, Haynes(?)), this lineup, parts of the rotation, and even some of the bench did everything they had to do to put us in a winning position, only to have it repeatedly yanked out from under them by the bullpen. If that becomes norm, rather than exception, this team will play sub 500 during the span, rather than the 5+ games over they potentially were striving towards.

    During that span of a mere 5 games, Graves (decisive 2HR inning versus Cubs), Wagner (drubbed by Phillies and Cubs in 2 separate huge, decisive innings), Norton (drubbed in each of his 3 appearances), Jones (2ER inning vs Cubs) each had 1, or more, decidedly horrid showings. Even when some scoreless innings were being placed on the board, it was often the case that the pitcher was getting slapped around but benefitting from at'em balls, or baserunning snafus. And it wasn't all Wrigley (some was, some wasn't), as the worst of the performances started in Philly, and the Cubs better relievers ala Hawkins, Farnsworth, Wellemeyer etc... weren't having many problems. Only Riedling (who should be our primary setup man), and Reith (maybe the closest we can come to filling some of Sullivan's middle relief role) pitched well during that span... We can't survive that kind of BP epidemic. We probably need to make re-assign some roles, and tinker with the design and/or bring up another LHP option.

    Looks like the optomist have a chance at being fairly close.

    Well, not to jinx it, but I have been EXACTLY on thus far,with 6 games to go.

    And as wheels said, Ears hasn't been right all season. I said, in ST and then in the first week of the season, that it wasn't a slump. His shoulder still isn't right. Now, I don't want to say that his broken wrist/arm is good, it's not. BUT, it will give that shoulder time to rest and, in the long run, I honestly believe this will do more good than bad. It helps his shoulder heal longer and it also lets us know just what we have in WMP.

    But still, I'm feeling pretty good on my prediction skills :mhcky21: :GAC:

    Damn, one game behind now. Guess we'll just have to take 3 outta 4 from the 'Stros...and just for the record, I think we can, seriously, as long as Berkman doesn't get a chance to hit...he OWNS us! :MandJ:

    Looks like Johnny Footstool's gonna get the number right (9), just not the sequence. I'd be stunned, totally stunned, if the Reds win more than a game in Houston (unless they replace Wagner with Bong; Jones with Belisle--breaking them in with long relief stints, and then replacing Norton with Mathews).

    My pessimistic prediction:

    1 from the Phillies
    1 from the Cubs
    1 from the Braves
    3 from Pittsburgh
    2 from Milwaukee
    1 from Houston

    9 wins total.

    I agree. It's going to be tough.
