None of the remaining series worry me...I think this team will weather it all. They may build up a nice lead (7 or 8 games) before the Cards series and then step on their neck for the final blow. Best case scenario has the Reds 11 games up on the Cards at the end of the series.
Worst case is now 1 game ahead. The way the Cards are playing, I don't realistically see us less than 5 games ahead AFTER the series ends. Face it! The 2010 Reds will be in the playoffs.
