So many are ready to go ahead and mark us playoff bound but look what is happening to the Padres, who had a MUCH more commanding lead. This thing isn't over, we still have to win games, there's a ton of baseball left.
It's definitely not over. But IMO, we're a better team than the Padres. We've only lost three series since the all-star break, so I don't see this Reds team suffering any prolonged losing streaks. And I don't see STL suddenly getting hot either. We'll be fine, even if we lose to Jiminez today. But didn't we hit him pretty good right after the break? STL apparently has our number this year, but nobody else does.
