    Do the Reds have a home-field advantage? Is it possible that the short OF fences are actually beneficial, since the Reds can build a team that adjusts and fits to it?

    That home record was below .500 before the last homestand.

    Sorry, but I'm going to have to go with: Allowing more runs than they score.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    That is true, but even then, the road splits were worse than the home ones.

    True, but before that last homestand GAB wasn't exactly a home field advantage for them. Obviously it was better than their road record but still not that good.

    I guess time will tell on that, but I do think at season's end, it's going to look lopsided as it does now.

    They need to start scoring more runs than the opponent on the road. They'll probably win a few more games.

    The Reds biggest problem is the West Coast. Every year it seems like the West Coast bites them in the butt. We all know what happened 2 years ago. Now this year it seems like a repeat. They get hot then go to the West Coast and get swept by the Dodgers (hopefully I spoke too soon on this one).

    The Reds biggest problem is their pitching. Going into tonight they had a 4.56 team ERA, second to last in the NL.

    and that doesn't even include the many unearned runs this team gives up. the entire defensive aspect of this team is rough, from pitching to defense....just bad

    The Reds biggest problem is winning.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    The Reds' pitching is the problem, of course. But Dusty will be the first casualty.

    Thankfuly they won 6 in a row at home to "skew" those home numbers - they really aren't much to write home about at home either.
