The Reds have been overwhelmingly unlucky this year. Sure Stubbs and Rolen have still not been good, but they havenít been so terrible. And boy, Cozart and Mesoraco sure look a lot better, donít they?

When I started doing this, I didnít know what Iíd find. I figured Stubbs and Rolen had been unlucky while Votto and Frazier had been lucky, but other than that, I didnít have any idea. I figured it would probably all balance out.

But it didnít. And what that tells us is that this team is better than weíve seen. They really should hit better going forward, especially given the light schedule they have for the remainder of the year. Hopefully, what should happen is what actually happens.
