I think this proves how bad the NL is this year. We've lost 4 straight and we still are leading the WC. Leaving your playoff life in the hands of other teams is not a good way to get there, but what the heck I've enjoyed the ride. If we can get to the playoffs there will be 2 other average teams there with us and the Mets aren't exactly a powerhouse, so anything could happen. I think the Reds will probably go on another streak winning something like 6 out of 8, and probably lose 3 or 4 in a row again. That may just be enough to get to the post season.
With this team you just can't get too excited or too angy, hard to do. I think we're going to be biting our nails down to the last few games of the season, it'll be a heck of a lot more fun than last year. '99 was fun, we didn't make the playoffs but it was fun, and this is a game, it's entertainment, it's supposed to be fun. Watching this year has been fun, the Reds have served the purpose of entertaining me this year. I just hope it lasts until November.
