    Reds All-Star Break (7/10-7/13)

    Reds will be back at it Friday at home Vs Washington.

    Good sign Homer goes into Coors and Chase Field vs two good teams and throws very well. I'd expect another No-Hitter at some point this second half.

    Castillo is gonna be a good one.

    How about Joey Votto? He's on pace for better numbers than his MVP season.

    He's unreal.

    Scary thing is he's always been better second half.

    If he has the exact same numbers as last year's second half he'll end the season with a .358 avg, 118 R, 38 2B, 41 HR, 123 RBI, 109 BB, and only 74 Ks.

    With a starting rotation that was in shambles basically all year. I think Price has done a pretty good job with this team.

    .358 would be insane.

    He's certainly in the MVP running at this point.

    Vegas has him at +5000

    Dont loose 13 in a row on that road trip (or whatever it was) and they are a 500 team.

    When and why did MLB go to a 4 day All Star Break? Didn't it used to be 3 days?

    They lost 9 straight at Los Angeles Dodgers (3x) then at San Diego (3x) then returned home to play Dodgers again (3x) before going to Tampa Bay (lost 2 out of 3), lost 2 out of three to Nationals and the makeup game at STL.

    June 9th thru June 26th -- 16 games, 2-14 record.

    Even better 14, so go 7-7 in that time and they are a contender for the playoffs.

    The .443 winning percentage translates to 72 wins over the course of a full season.

    I said 73 wins in the preseason prediction thread, we will see.
