Cincinnati Reds Week 3 Pitching Report

The Reds entered Week 3 3.5 games behind the NL Central leading St. Louis Cardinals. The Reds played 4 in Milwaukee and a rain shortened series against the Chicago Cubs in Week 3, ended out the week 3-3 and 8-10 overall. The team has completed 10 percent of their season and are drastically falling behind the 3 out of 5 wins a week range and are currently going at 2 out of 5 wins cycle. The Week 4 competition brings Milwaukee into town for three days followed by four games in Atlanta. The Reds will have to win all of their games this week to get back to winning 3 out of 5 game cycle.  Continue reading

As for the win (win 3 out of 5), they failed to do that and will need to bounce back in Week 3 against Milwaukee and Chicago (Need to be 11-8 by the end of the week).  Continue reading

Cincinnati Reds Week 1 Pitching Report

The Reds opened up their 2015 season to a surprising start with a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the opening series and closing out the weekend with a 4-2 record with a 0.5 game lead in the NL Central. Wire-to-wire? I highly doubt it, and it’s rare that this will happen in 2015. One of the key things to dissect in the 162 is to go by cycles, a cycle of 5 games to be exact. Most postseason teams will have 90+ wins, but to be better than safe than sorry, win 3 out of 5 games and the last two in the 162 is “insurance”. So if your squad is looking to 96 to 98 win team, this is the model to look at. The Reds with 6 games assured themselves that they reached the first of 32+ cycles.

The Reds in Week 2 will face the Chicago Cubs and St Louis Cardinals for 6 games, in which by the next post should be at 7-5, if they follow this cycle.  Continue reading
