Its kinda funny because it seems like this magic number has been stagnant for the better half of September. But when you take a second to realize that the Reds have a 6.5 game lead with a week left in the season. I think Dusty is doing a good job of getting players rested, giving alot of players PT, and realizing its all about going into the post season fresh.
I think a lot of Reds fans are waiting for the other shoe to fall but it wasn't going to. Its all about preparing for the post season. Most of us fans wanted the Reds to steam roll in to the playoffs but after one more win or Cards loss, it will be all gravy.
