    We’re something like +30 for the year in runs scored, only team in MLB that’s a positive in runs scored for the year and has a losing record.

    We’ve scored 14 runs total in Castillo’s last 2 starts and lost both games??
    Didn’t think I would say that all year!

    I heard the say on the radio on the way home but dont remember exactly. Bringing up Lucas Sims or something like that. I think he is 3-0 with a 4+ ERA.

    When we've had a thread starter go back-to-back this year, they are a combined 0-3-1 in the second series, with an overall record of 3-8 (not counting the two games in the Pirates series, so far). Obviously I'm wishing you well, Pete...but you'll be bucking history to pull off a series win.

    I knew we had a new rotation, but I honestly thought it was a rotation for who had the next series AFTER a previous losing series. The rule for years has been that a winning series deserved another start in order to keep the momentum going for the Reds (which has been lacking recently).

    ....so cut me some slack!

    Slack given!

    Man, it's all good! We're all here rooting for the same outcome, however it may occur. Like I said before, I'm hoping you have good luck with this series. And yes, I know how it had been in previous years. But, it was a couple series ago that I noticed that we hadn't had any luck with "keeping the momentum" by having someone go back-to-back, even after a series win. When I looked into the "analytics" of BGP thread starting, I saw that ChickenWyngz had a winning series (3-0), followed by a split (1-1), and then a loss (0-3). Later on he had another winner (2-1) followed immediately by a loss (1-2), as did FutureCoach…a win (2-1) followed up by a loss (1-2). That was the only reason why I suggested a rotation on a per series basis (regardless of outcome), and it was strictly that...a suggestion. But obviously there's no hard, fast rules. It wasn't intended to be a personal attack on you, and I hope you didn't take it that way.

    I'm just here to root on the Reds, not make enemies.

    I thought maybe it was the pitching matchup...but, if you sit a guy for going 7 for 16, with two doubles, two HR's and six walks (.428/.591/.938)...then you should have your head checked. So, got to be something other than that. Is this one of those "planned" days off?
