    7 Game Homestand

    The Reds have what appears to be a very winnable homestand this week. Down teams, and they're missing their best pitchers.

    Here is who they're scheduled to face:

    Pittsburgh:

    Burris
    Maholm
    Olendorf
    Morton

    Houston:

    Wandy Rodriguez
    Felipe Paulino
    Bud Norris

    7 games, 7 winnable games. No starter on this 7 game homestand has an
    ERA lower then 4.30.

    What would be an acceptable, dissapointing and terrible homestand in your opinion?

    I think anything less than 5-2 would be pretty disappointing.

    Anything below .500 would be unacceptable at this point - I'd say 5-2 is likely, 6-1 would be great, 7-0 would be unreal!

    Good News: Leake throws 2 of the 7 games

    Bad News: Harang throws 2 of the 7 games

    I'd settle for 5-2, just keep winning every series, 3/4 and 2/3! I hate a 4 game series because it's hard to not split, but with Pittsburgh I think they should be able to take 3/4. No Oswalt!

    5-2 I would be happy with. I'm going Saturday against the Stros. It will be my 5th game of the year on my package. It will be the 3rd time I've seen Harang. Who did I anger to deserve this?

    Haha, we had the same issue a few years ago when we got the Bakers dozen package, At least it's a win-win with the Joey Votto action figure, lol. I've gotten to the point I just buy tickets on ebay or stubhub the nights I want to go, that way you can see the matchups, and if they happen to fall out of the race, which I hope they don't, you don't have a lot of 2 hour drives to see meaningless games.
