Found August 12, 2012 on Redlegs Review:
Don't deny it. Each day of the week feels different in their very own way.

Since we already know that not all days are created equal, I wanted to set out to determine which day(s) the Reds played the best on and which day(s) they played worst. With that in mind, here is Cincy's record this season when playing on a particular day of the week: Monday: 6-6 Tuesday: 9-8 Wednesday: 9-8 Thursday: 6-7 Friday: 12-6 Saturday: 13-6 Sunday: 13-5 Overall: 68-46 By the looks of it, the Reds should really make an effort to play all or most of their games on the weekend. They're 38-17 on those days and just 30-29 on all others. Sunday is their best day...
