Obivously we want them to go 10-0 but realistically, what sort of reccord would you be happy with in light of the current standings (both division and WC race)?
Gotta go at least 6-4 to stay in the thick of things I think. That's honestly how I see things shaking out too: 3 of 4 in SF, 1 of 3 in LA and 2 of 3 in SD. If the Reds can sweep either the Giants or Pads though, things look REALLY sweet coming back. I'll even go be Cyclone's best friend for his playoff tix then.
Bottom line is the Reds can't go below .500 on this trip. 5-5 is a slight disappointment, but should keep us still in it. Anything under and we'd need a 7-8 game win streak to lock up the wild card, and I'm not 100% sure this team has that in them.
