I think Lonnie Wheeler said in the paper today that the Reds would have to play .700+ baseball (perhaps Wheeler said .760- I'm not exactly sure) and the Brewers would have to go one game under .500 the rest of the way- for the Reds to tie the Brewers for the Central Division crown. I don't see this 2007 edition of the Reds doing that.
My heart however would love to see the Brewers go a long way in the playoffs and possibly pull off what the Cardinals did last year.
I guess I was thinking the thread was about who you were rooting for, and I can't find any reason to cheer for the Cubs.
