    How big is the rest of June?

    Home Games Left: 16
    Road Games Left: 6

    If we go 14-8 that would put us 15 games over .500 at 48-33 thats the halfway point and on pace for 96 wins.

    the Reds have played .500 on the road this year.

    I think the 16 home games are really important because if they slip at home they could be looking at a problem.

    Granted, a lot of the players on this team weren't here the last time the Reds went deep into June looking like they might be able to contend for the division, but for the players sake and the fans sake, it would be a huge psychological boost to go into the All Star break in 1st place or very close to it and be more than 10 games over .500.
    If I remember correctly, the last several times the Reds put together a competitive first few months of the season, in mid to late June/early July the wheels completely fell off.

    I like the 14-8 number that berryluther posted.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    I wouldn't worry too much about our 14-13 record on the road so far this season. Look at the rest of the division's road numbers to this point:

    St. Louis: 14-14
    Chicago: 11-18
    Pittsburgh: 9-19
    Milwaukee: 15-18
    Houston: 8-15

    We're the best in the Central on the road so far this season. Also, the Cardinals are getting ready to start a series on the road against the equally hot Dodgers who are 20-10 at home this year. We might have a 2 or 3 game lead in the division by the end of the week if we play well.
    I hate the Cardinals. I hate the Cubs.
    Let's. Go. Reds.

    I'm hoping for big crowds this week. Would love to skip out of work on Thursday for the day game...seriously considering it.

    I know at least three people (self-included) from our store that will be at tonight's game. We'll try to make it a loud one.

    I'm really looking forward to the SF series and the Philly series. I'm interested to see how we stack up against two good teams

    The Reds almost need to go better than that because of the huge amounts of Road games they have in the second half of the season. So far just hovering around .500 on the road and that's ok if you have an awesome home record which they do.

    I brought it up because of how many games we have at home. Our road record could slip but if our home record slips? I might worry.

    Also, St. Louis has some rotation issues right now. Hawksworth is going tonight instead of Walters. Penny and Lohse still on the DL. David Freese turned an ankle over the weekend, so Miles or FeLo at 3rd for a few games.

    June is a great opportunity to get our overall record to .600 and separate some more from the rest of the pack. It's likely that if we're not in first place in the Central, we're at least within 2 games of 1st place.

    After that, there's some Cavalry on the way in July, either through a trade (Harang for a Reliever if we eat the salary), Chapman, Volquez, Bray (who should be back before July), Dickerson and Hanigan.

    Cardinals are catching LA at a good time from our point of view, especially with Cardinals catching the injury bug.

    Here's to staying up late rooting for the Dodgers

    For some reason I'm leery of the Cubs' record, they looked pretty good today against a bad Pirates team. Five games under .500 isn't that bad.

    Nothing like having a beer in the Sun while watching Major League Baseball when you're supposed to be at work.
