Ladies and gentlemen, your first place Reds!

17 05 2010

The last time the Reds were in first place all by themselves was on April 17th, 2007.  They were a half game up on Milwaukee, and then lost seven of their next nine games.  They would never get closer that 3.5 games to first place for the rest of the year.

The last time the Reds were in first place this deep into the season was 2006, when they were tied with the Cardinals on August 24th.  They then lost the next six games and finished that season in 3rd place.

Hopefully this time it will last a bit longer.  Like, say, until October.  Here’s to ruling the NL Central for a long time!

(And yes, I realize it’s only May 17th.  But it’s been 509 games since the Reds have had sole possession of first place.  I’m going to enjoy this as much as I can.)

Nothing wrong with enjoying the moment – I am doing the same! Hopefully, the Reds can maintain the positive momentum and actually do well for the rest of the season…
