Re: Far too early to be throwing in the towel
Luckily for the Reds the NL stinks this year. I think only the Phillies/Mets, possibly the Astros, maybe the Brewers, and the Reds (if we can add a starting pitcher and a couple BP arms) will be the teams competing the for the NL wildcard. 85-88 wins could win the NL Wildcard. There doesn't appear to be one great team in the NL this year, so while I would be surprised if the Reds were to win the WC, it's not completely out of the question.
