#908 Cincinnati Reds -1 +100 (3 units) WINNER!
The Reds faced some righties yesterday, and struggled with offense, but still pulled the win to put themselves only a game back of .500. A couple of scenarios where teams have done well: These are backed by numbers, but it is psychological. Cincinatti (65-66 / now -1 game off a win), Chicago White Sox (64-65 / now -1 game off win), and Toronto (66-65 / now +1 game off loss). Not a ton of weight in that, but it's an interesting trick to think about especially now. Where do teams find motivation? .500 when all hope is lost means something (history says so). Anyways, the Reds overcame the righties, now some lefties. They have an offense that is 29% better against lefties. Right now, that would be the biggest variation in the league. Big one here…Go Reds!
