    Taking Harvey’s production out and replacing it with Homer is going to make that hard.

    Gave my son 400-1 odds a few weeks ago. He said "I'll take $5 of that action." While I would love to see the Reds make the playoffs, paying out $2k would suck!!!

    They've got 6 teams to jump just to get to the 2nd wildcard. If the Brewers maintain their current winning percentage the Reds would need to go 48-18 to match them. That would be winning at a .727 clip. The Red Sox, with the best record in baseball, have a .694 winning percentage. It would take the collapse of 2-3 teams and the Reds playing out of their minds.

    While I would like another high draft pick I'd also like to see a push to .500 this second half. While Harvey hasn't been an ace or anything he's been solid and replacing that will be hard. My guess is they play to .500 the rest of the way and finish 10-12 games under .500.
