Oh No It's Oswalt...

Baseball is a game of strange, inexplicable statistics. Oswalt's 23-1 lifetime record against the Reds is one of those. In 2 starts this season Oswalt has allowed 9 runs in 13 innings. Oswalt is just 31 years old, so he should have plenty left. Of course his last win came last September against the Reds. The Astros always beat the Reds. Cincinnati was 3-12 against Houston in 2008 and stands a sorry 21-48 in the last 69 games against the Astros. Despite Oswalt's slow start to the season, digesting all of these numbers has me reaching for the maalox.
