    In their recap ESPN mentions that the 2005 Reds also were 31-50.

    According to baseball-reference.com, the 1982 team was 32-49 at this point.

    FWIW.

    81 box CIN HOU W 11-6 31-49 6 19.0 2:43
    And the 2005 Reds were better than the 2007 version. Wow. What improvement.

    Woohoo! The Reds turned a corner tonight!

    I would like to remind everyone not to get googly-eyed about Kyle Lohse tonight. He is nothing but a tease--but hopefully, if he can string together a couple more outings like this one, the Reds can trade him and he can be someone else's tease.

    So true. Lohse is Jeckyl and Hyde. One start he's Superman and the enxt start he's Truman Capote. His overall stats don't look too bad, but in the end, he's not effective. Time to cut another Minnesota reject and our losses.

    In a perfect world, last night would have been his showcase, and he would virtually be on the way to another team before he makes a start. Every start he makes after this one has more of a potential to decrease his trade value than increase it.
    Unfortunately, in this world, I think he will get a few more chances. I even have the fear that "the right offer won't come along", and Wayne will stick with him - but I hope that fear is unfounded.

    Did anyone else hear Brantley tell his story about his curveball tonight? It was hilarious! He said that as a young college pitcher he was very proud of his big, breaking curve because he could see the break from the mound. Well, his coach at Mississippi State asked him, "If you can see the break, don't you think the batter can, too?" He said, "I guess so. I hadn't thought of that." Then his coach said, "Shorter is better." And Brantley then replied, "Not in my experience!" Then both Brantley and George laughed. (Though I don't think George knew what he was laughing about!)

    Not even to the all-star break and already we're talking about Brantley's weiner size...... yes folks it's time to.....
