    19.2 if I added it right. Someone said earlier that this is a bad time to be hitting the Phillies and I agree. Cliff Lee is pitching tomorrow and he really doesn't have that bad of numbers as you would think being 2-7. He has a .383 ERA and just came off a 12K effort. He doesn't walk anyone, but that doesn't matter because the Reds don't walk anyway.

    I think the Phillies are a good team. Fortunately for the Reds, if they have a bad series they can put it in the rear view because of how well they have done so far. It's probably important not to put too much weight on this series, but their are a ton of great match-ups.

    Philadelphia is a solid team with very good pitching. The type of team the Reds will face in October. A split would be nice. Seeing them play sound fundamental baseball would be nice as well.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Here is another question I have. If the opposing team lets the runner advance to second base and, let's say the runner falls. Then the catcher gets up and throws him out. Won't he get credited with a caught stealing? Shouldn't they call it a caught indifferentiating?

    If they were truly indifferent towards the runner, then the catcher wouldn't even bother throwing down there when the runner fell. Maybe that is the true test. Have the runner fall down and judge the reaction.

    I have a very high caught indifferentiating percentage in my adult baseball league.
