    Let us not forget who the Reds are playing. That said, I love the wins and will take them any way we get them, against whoever.

    The Reds to this point in the season have played better against teams with winning records than they have teams with losing records. So that considered, I'm pumped about the past three games.

    For most of the season they've played teams with "better" records.

    So, with that in mind, all wins are good wins.

    5-2? It's the Jerry Hairston, Jr. factor. That's what a difference a good leadoff hitter makes versus an inept leadoff hitter.

    I was just thinking the same thing, LOL It's about time they start beating the teams that they should be beating and if you add this new concept to the fact that they do well and somehow beat the teams who should be beating them, then we could see a really fun second half of the season. I'm having fun watching the young guys anyway but if you throw a few more wins into it, then that's just fantastic. BTW-That Jay Bruce catch in CF was the #1 web gem on Baseball Tonight earlier this evening!

    Imagine this team without the Corey Patterson experiment.
    Who's on first?

    The only thing to talk about on REDSZONE would be "when are the playoff tickets going on sale", and who can we trade "for" to push us over the top.

    Dunn would stay with the team to the bitter end and we'd get 2 1st Round picks for him in next season's draft. (If Jockety doesn't get a better offer in the next 3 weeks, then that's what we will get for Dunn.) The Brewers are going to lose some key players possibly and they could have 5 1st Round picks next draft.

    And Dunn's 3-run shot ties it up.

    So far this season, Dunn's OPS is absolutely identical to his career OPS number.

    By the end of the season I expect his OPS to be the best he's ever had. I'd be shocked if he doesn't end up with an OPS of .950 from July through October.

    Lets hope they can keep it going the last time I heard they where 8 game out of the wild card with 1/2 the season left. It can be done.

    Exactly! Though my wife laughed at me when I said that and said she could tell I wasn't raised in Cincinnati.

    I really hope we turn this ship around and make some noise the 2nd half of the season. That would make for a GREAT fall!
    Let's make some noise!
