    .667 at home and .500 on the road....

    That translates to a 54-27 home record....have always wanted the REDS to figure out how to dominate at home again like the Big Red Machine did.

    ....and a 40-41 road record...will produce an overall record of 94-68, which should win the division easily.....so, maybe a .600 home record and .500 road record....that would produce an 89-73 record, which might win a wild card and maybe the division.

    So, on this 6-game road trip, I'm hoping for 3-3, preferably 2 of the wins in Chicago.

    We're 4-2 at home so far. Looking good.

    Even though we lost a 3-2 game, I think we can win our share of 3-2 games.

    After starting 0-2 with two frustrating losses, a pleasant recovery on this trip. One of the next two and it has been a succesful week in Arizona and Chicago. Steal the next two and it will be in the unexpectedly pleasant range.

    Technically they have three West Coast trips this year...

    (1) 6 games (LA, SD), May 11-16
    (2) 6 games (OAK, SEA), June 18-24
    (3) 4 games (all SF), Sept. 20-23

    Old timers remember when West Coast Trips were commonplace. That meant a trip to SF, SD, & LA and one or two of those days were double-headers. Usually that happened three times a year.

    I need to stop. I sound like RFS. Except that he'd talk about the train rides.

    Mark me down for the projected W/L total. I'll take it.
