Twelve games remaining in this season, and the Reds need to win each of them if they want to avoid a ninth straight losing season.
Perhaps the Reds think they can avoid that losing record. That would explain why Johnny Cueto is still pitching instead of being shut down for the year.
There is some great news, however! Rejoice! Willy Taveras is back!
Perhaps we should have a contest to predict how many of the last 12 games Taveras will start in CF and leadoff. Will he have to marinate tonight, or will Dusty stick him right in the lineup?
Oh, the questions…. Discuss them all here.
