Re: So...is anyone else worried about the Reds?
I am not worried about the Reds. They've done better than I thought they would and it doesn't make sense for me to start making demands on them that I think are higher than they should be at this point. They are starting to look like they have a shot at being a very good team for the next decade, so I hope they give me reason to amp up my expectations over the next few years. For right now, I'm thrilled and amazed at what this ball club has done and if they go out early, then they go out early. Sure, it will be a disappointment because it's always a joy to cheer your team on, deep into the playoffs. But the Reds are a good team again and I have no reason not to expect them to be in this position next year.
Secondly, what is it going to take for people to quit worrying about these guys? Haven't they taught us this year never to count them out? They're a resilient team.
