I Need The Reds To Win More Of Them Baseball Games

Perhaps you recall that I wagered several American dollars on the Reds winning more than 78 games this year. Had they won last night, they would have been ahead of pace. And I would have rejoiced (yelling and stuff). But they didn't. So I caused a commotion (yelling and stuff, but angry).

What makes this defeat so difficult is that, coupled with Sunday's loss to the Brewers, the Reds have faced two of the three best lefties in the NL (Sabathia and Santana - Hamels being the third lefty) in consecutive games and had victory snatched from them.

Current projection: 77 wins.

I need a new hobby.
