    Well, We're Guaranteed of a >.500 Record at the ASB

    Guardado looked good tonight, the offense has not shown that they are disheartened by the numerous bullpen fiascos of late, we're healthy, and we're firmly in the race for both the W/C and the division.

    If you'd have told me this in March, I'd have been happy.

    We still need help in the 'pen, and we need to find a replacement for Joe Mays in the rotation, but we can do this....the events of the last 48 hours have really given me a renewed sense of optimism.

    We may not win the whole thing. We may not even make the playoffs. However, I do feel confident making 2 predictions:

    1. We'll stay in the race, and will be buying - not selling - at the deadline.

    2. Win or lose, Reds games will be exciting each and every night, and not always for good reasons.

    With Harang and Bronson going the next 2 we have a legit shot of being 5 over at the break. For all that we have been through lately, I'd take that in a heartbeat.

    Actually we're guaranteed a winning record going into the AS break. The worst we can do is 45-44. I thought we'd win only one in Atlanta, but we may end up 46-43, but 47-42 would be maavelous.

    I'm surprised, yet happy that Captian Obvious made the trip out to see us!

    These new glasses are killing me. I don't read so well.

    Who would have thunk it?

    Just think where we'd be if the pen was fixed earlier?
