I don’t know about you, but I kinda enjoyed yesterday’s off-day. Maybe fatigue is setting in, and here we aren’t even to the dog days of August yet.
Oh well, another game or two like the last two in Cleveland, and I will have caught my third wind.
The Reds host Arizona tonight to close out what has been a fairly miserable month of June. This month has seen the Reds go just 11-14 (and that’s after the two straight wins over the weekend). The Reds are now at .500, three games out of first and three games out of last place.
So, how much ground have the Redlegs lost after this miserable month? Well, as June began, the Reds were three games over .500…and 3.5 games out of first place (5.5 games out of last).
That’s right; the Reds have played under .500, yet they’ve gained a half-game in the standings. Ain’t life in the NL Central grand?
Bronson Arroyo tonight, and who knows what to expect from him as he faces AZ’s Dan Haren. Keep your fingers crossed and discuss the game here….
