So far they aren't just on pace, they are actually winning the exact games within each series as projected (excepting the rained out Philly game, which may have stolen one from us). However, so far it's been the exact scenario versus the Phils, the 2 of 4 vs Cubs, the 2 of 3 from the Braves, and a nice start towards 3 of 4 versus the Bucs (which given the way they are playing could be a 4 of 4). The hardest test will be the split with Houston, but if we go into thaty series 6-7 games over .500 as we projected... the team should be in a very comfortable situation. And, going into that tough Away set versus the Astros will still likely have not lost a series yet on the year.Originally Posted by SC Reds Fans
I'll still be shocked if they aren't 17-10 at the end of the stretch. It could have been even better had we protected a few significant late inning leads, and had we not blown a few other close ones. However, it would be hard to ask for more than what this team is accomplishing, even on nights where they don't get quality starts or solid BP relief... and the Pirates are the perfect panacea in the midst of the more difficult series.
Good calls, so far.

They haven't really had him all year anyway.

Well, not to jinx it, but I have been EXACTLY on thus far,with 6 games to go.Originally Posted by SC Reds Fans
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:
3 wins ahead of my prediction.My pessimistic prediction:
1 from the Phillies Wrong! 2Ws
1 from the Cubs Wrong! 2Ws
1 from the Braves Wrong! 2Ws
3 from Pittsburgh Right! I'm the MAN!!
2 from Milwaukee
1 from Houston
9 wins total.

My how quickly things can change.....
Bout time you chaged your signature Springfield?
Didn't I just write, "my how quickly things can change", that works both ways right?Originally Posted by smith288
Say Smith, the Reds have a .571 win pct. right now, just what is .571 X 162 games?
It does work both ways but do you honestly think this team, as it stands, has any hope of keeping up a 571 win %? Seriously.Originally Posted by SpringfieldFan
I don't know that it will stand this way, though I don't have any faith in the Reds FO, a bit of a stretch, but the FO and our bullpen are somewhat synonymous to me.Originally Posted by smith288
I will still have to wait and see what May and June brings.
Though the following has nothing to do with rather the Reds will win 92 games, none of the division teams seem to be winning that much, I mean that none of the teams in the Reds division seem dominate at this segment of the present season, which might make for a nice season regardless of 92 victories or less for the Reds.
I agree. We wont get to 92 wins but if things stay the same in the Div, we will be among the "elite" in the hapless Nat Central
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:Originally Posted by SC Reds Fans
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).
