Power Rankings
After five pretty rough overall outings to begin his big-league career, pitching prospect Cody Reed threw six strong innings (5 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K) Tuesday. Granted it was against the Braves, but it's something to build upon.
In his last 36 games, Joey Votto is hitting .312/.456/.552 with nine doubles and seven homers. After a terrible start to the season, he's himself again.
Adam Duvall as an All-Star is a really fun story. Hopefully he's in the Home Run Derby, too.
One of the biggest upsets of the season was the bullpen going eight innings against the Cubs without allowing a hit. Granted, it ran out, but that's a silver lining to the loss, no?
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.
