A test begins

There are always some sizable obstacles and tests during the course of a 162-game season, and this 11-game, 11-day road trip through Chicago (4 games), New York (3 games) and Philadelphia (4 games) heading into the All-Star break certainly qualifies.

Does anyone care to guess what the road trip record will be? I’m going with 6-5, which would satisfactory for a trip of this nature.

Haven’t looked at the pitching match-ups in NY and PHIL, which makes some difference, but I’m going with you at 6-5. I say we go 3-1 in Chicago and split the rest of the trip. The Mets are playing better now, but the injuries are going to take a bit of a toll on the Phillies. But beating Halladay or Hamels will be tough for the Reds in Philly. So, 6-5.
