In a division where four teams could reasonably make the playoffs the Reds are going to be a factor down the stretch. They are probably the most respectable of all last place teams and didn’t totally gut themselves at the break. They will win some games down the stretch.
Two years ago Anthony Descalafani was 9-5 with a tidy 3.28 ERA. Injuries struck and he has never been able to get back to that form. Now he is is neither young nor old and the Reds are in limbo as to how much he factors into their plans. Every game is a guess though.
The Nats are not that far out of a playoff spot but nobody has any insight as to whether this group is tough enough to go for it. They seem to change their mind every day but perhaps now that the deadline has passed and they have their group they just play like they should have all season long.
Gio Gonzalez was one of those would they, won’t they guys to start the week. He is having an alright season but he gets bumped up a notch with Strasburg unavailable. His strikeout rate is down again this season but he might be getting more mound savvy. He always walk a lot of guys though.
