Re: We don't have to beat the Cards...
I also agree that the Cardinals are more built for the playoffs than the Reds. Their top 3 pitchers are dominant and will keep them in any game.
But, that's why it's a 162 game season. I am confident that the Reds can win a lot of games down the stretch. If the Cards continue to play like they like did this series, they are going to a bunch of games too.
I have no idea what's going to happen but I do see it being a neck and neck race, just like it's been for the past 3 months. Someone posted a stat before showing they have been within 3 games of each over for over 90 days or something. I see no reason why that won't continue.
The only bad thing is people are going to be jumping overboard after we face Josh Johnson.
Votto for MVP
