Suggesting that the Reds will make the postseason is not being optimistic. Look, I am none too thrilled with the way our boys have played the last two months, but they are STILL 4.5 up on the second wild card in spite of the below .500 run they've had.

I was pretty down after the teeth kicking we got yesterday, but the bottomline is with just over 50 to play the Reds still are in the thick of the playoffs.

Now, do they need to step it up and NOW? Absolutely. I don't deny that one bit. I do deny that the sky is falling however. Go Reds!
