Every season's schedule seems to have its own quirks. The Reds have only five more homestands remaining in the 2006 season, and two of them are upcoming ten-game homestands, seperated by only a short six-game road swing.
They'll pay the price for all the time at home after that, though, as they'll have only six more home games until September 4.
Normally you would think that lots of home games would be a good thing, but I'm not sure that's the case with this team. So, is the upcoming run of home games a blessing or a curse? If the current slide continues, the natives may get restless and start to turn on the home team, making them look forward to getting out of town.
