San Diego Padres, a Dead Cash Cow
Schedules Are Looking Red for CincinnatiAs bad as their recent 4-6 run looks on paper, it’s worth noting that the Cincinnati Reds (49-60) played the Cardinals, Pirates and Diamondbacks during that run. Defensively, the Reds were solid through those 10 games, but they just didn’t generate enough offense to offer up any real threat. They were held off the score board in 3 of those games, with their lone offensive outburst coming at the start, when they knocked off the Pirates 15-5.Looking ahead at their remaining schedule, the Reds will have the majority of their games against teams in the playoff picture right now. That does not bode well for their overall season record, especially if the offense remains as anemic as it is at the moment. Michael Lorenzen (3-7, 4.84 ERA) will be trying to break out of a 3-game losing skid with this start.
