  The Reds refuse to go into the abyss of another losing season without a fight. They've won five games in a row overall and eight straight against the Astros. Are you as excited as I am??? I thought so.


   Tonight we'll find out if Justin Lehr learned anything from giving up FIVE home runs in his last start, which happened to be against this very Astros team. Lehr hasn't been pitching too great lately, but he's not taking losses either. Over his last five starts his ERA is a Badroyo-esque 8.00 but somehow he's 2-2 and the Reds are 3-2 in those five starts.


Felipe Paulino on the other hand has been pitching pretty well while getting no help from his teammates. He is 0-4 this month despite a 3.52 ERA because the Astros haven't scored one single run for him. Somewhere, Aaron Harang nods his head in a knowing manner.


   The suddenly surging Reds will definitely better last years' win total. How does this make you feel as a Reds fan? Do you see real progress or is it just dumb luck? Personally I see a lot of improvement in the pitching and fielding departments, but the offense is going to need some help next year if they're going to make a run at the playoffs. I know it's all been said before, but what else are we going to talk about?

  Florida is favored by 21 points over UK but Tim Tebow may have H1N1. UC won again and I'm pretty sure they could give tOSU a run for their money on a neutral field. Louisville disbanded their football team to save money and to stop wasting everyone's time.
