I hate, HATE depending on other teams to do The Reds' dirty work. Maybe I'm being panicky but this 6-game lead feels like nothing right now.
Concern is OK. Its still a nice lead this time of year, but the Reds just lost 3 of 4 while the Cards won 3 of 4. That's how comebacks start and the Reds need a win. The Reds showing some chinks in the armor and it isn't because all the LH OF are hurting. Many mocked the acquisition of Westbrook, but he's a better #4 starter than anyone in Cincy.
