It might just be a coincidence, but the Reds pick up Kyle Lohse and are now in a downward spiral, and the Twins lead the AL wild card. Cincinnati has lost Griffey to yet another injury, lost Guardado for the rest of the season to a torn elbow, and lost the wild card lead to the Giants while going 3-11 in their last 14 games. Two of those 14 games were Kyle Lohse starts, where he's given up 9 runs in 11.1 innings, and received only 1 run in support.
Did I forget to mention they also have Grant Balfour, Eric Milton, Juan Castro, and already jettisoned Joe Mays?
