Rounding third and heading for home...
Good game fellas.....lets go for the sweep tomorrow.
The good news is, just like Cronin and the 'Cats, this is their last stand as the Reds are turning a corner into a very good team and, in time, the Dusty bashers will feign into irrelevance because the criticism will become too ridiculous for anyone to give credence to it.
Dusty haters are running out of material and starting to sound like broken records.
Here's my top 3:
3: Xavier Paul - way to go buddy. Helluva first start for the Reds and I hope many more! 3 hits and 2 RBI!
2: Drew Stubbs - 3 for 4 and the Go ahead homer! Glad to see your bat waking up!
1: Mike Leake - 8 solid innings. Starter's and rotation's ERA trending down - way down!

There are only two seasons - Winter and Baseball.
Happy time to be a REDS fan, BP is really stepping-up with Votto out .
Went back to the 75/76 to see how those teams did with regards to winning streaks and re-remembered how awesome those teams were. In 1975 the team went 108-54. They started out the season 18-19. Yep, at just about the quarter pole that team was sub-.500. They went a ridiculous 90-35 from that point on. That is just plain sick. They had winning streaks of 10, 9, 7, 6 and 6. In their last 11 games they won 5, lost 1 and won the next 5 to close the season winning 10 out of 11. Just prepping for the playoffs I suppose.
In 1976 they went 102-60. They had just two 7-game streaks. The next longest streak for that team was just 4 games, although they did have 7 of those 4-game streaks.
A watched plot never thickens.
