Did it really happen? Did the Redlegs, just a day before June ends, finally notch their first winning road trip of the season?

Nice.

With Pittsburgh and Washington coming into Cincinnati, the Reds have a real chance to make some progress. I will be there for the Nationals series, and I hope the Reds are in the midst of getting healthy in the win-loss column at that time.

Fingers are crossed.

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

    What are the chances that Griffey is a Red at the end of the year? Arroyo? Dunn? Harang?(!)

  5. Woah, terribly sorry for the multi-posts there… My laptop appears to be more tired than I am right now.

  6. Pittsburgh and Washington. These are the teams that have killed the Reds the past couple of years. Just dreadful. Now, look at this year. Put your finger on a series or two that has murdered this season and what do you see?

    Swept by Pittsburgh and Houston in April, lose 5 of 7 to the Dodgers and Padres in May, three more losses to the Dodgers and two to the Blue Jays in June.

    It’s THESE teams they can’t beat. For some reason.

  7. Looking at the scheduule, everyone knew they would struggle during the brutal first half of the month. Now it is time to get things going. The schedule only gets better starting right now.

  8. That’s a good lineup up there….but Dumpy’s got other plans. According to Mark Shedlon:

    “A late-night note taker, Reds manager Dusty Baker often wakes up with a thought for the next game and writes it down. It’s likely he’ll be scribbling down lots of notes over the next few weeks, especially different lineup combinations.”

    Hahaha…maybe picking the lineups at 3 a.m. is why they never make sense.
