Power Rankings
That's 11 wins in June so far with nine remaining games. They only won nine in April and eight in May.
Since I demoted them to last place, the Reds have gone 9-4 and show a renewed sense of fight. Sometimes I take for granted my ability to motivate teams here in these rankings, but this is a nice little reminder of my great power. With great power, however, comes great responsibility. I do not take this lightly.
Here's hoping that Adam Duvall wins the NL home run crown for the season. That would be something.
On Friday, May 6, the Reds won their third straight game to start the season 13-17. Since then they've lost 18 games against only four wins. They might have a better record than a few teams, but they are pretty clearly the worst in baseball right now.
In the World Series era, the franchise record for runs allowed in a season is 907, which happened in 2004. They're on pace to allow 958 this season.
Remember, they started 5-1. Only the Braves are worse since then.
Quite the spilt here: The Reds are 12-9 at home but 2-10 on the road.
The bullpen has allowed at least one run in 21 consecutive games, setting a major-league record. In fact, it was more than one run in 18 of those games. Obvious, simple truth: It's hard to win games this way.
Look at the bright side, they are actually 8-6 when they don't play the Cubs.
Excellent outing Tuesday night for prospect Robert Stephenson, allowing only one run on three hits to a good hitting team. These are the types of things upon which to focus during the rebuild. Also, I'll be surprised if I rank the Reds higher than this the rest of the season.
