Even after last night's debacle, the Reds are still 7-8 on the road, which isn't bad. What is bad is 6-7 at home. Last year the Reds were only 3 games over .500 at home.
Good teams win at home. Last year, every division winner was more than 15 games over .500 at home.
I don't know exactly why the Reds don't win at GABP. But unless they learn to do so, they are going nowhere.
So the loss at Houston was bad, but winning on this next homestand is perhaps more critical.
