Anyway that same speech needs to be said today. I hope at 4 I am told "i told you so" too. Hopefully GABP is rockin. The Reds need some home field support to pull this out. Theres just so much to say but i hope we get it done. T-Minus 1 hour.
I think momentum and speeches are all overrated in baseball. The Reds had every ounce of momentum coming back to Cincinnati up 2-0, but lost two straight. If you need a speech to get ready for the playoffs, you shouldn't be on the field. The team who makes the least mistakes and gets a little bit of luck today will win.
