Don't look now, but Arroyo's ERA is under 5.00 for the first time since his first start of the season. And now that Corey Patterson's batting over .200 for the season, you'll see that look of regret on the face of Cubs fans when they realize what got away. Things are really starting to look up for the Reds. Heck, I bet they even have a big crowd down at the ol' ballpark tonight.
The Cubs are currently mired in a 5-game losing streak, their longest of the season. For some perspective, the Reds have had 5 losing streaks this season of 5 games or more. But that doesn't matter now. The Reds are in the spoiler part of their season. So, hold on to your hats because these games, you know, mean something to like one of the teams involved.
