This is not a thread bashing the Reds play or how the season has gone. I'm merely stating a question...is the division out of reach?
The Reds are 7 games out on August 9. The Reds play the Pirates 6 more times. It's doubtful the Reds will win all 6 games. The Pirates have some tough games left, no question. But their remaining schedule appears to be medium difficulty. Of course the Pirates could choke.
But with the Cardinals up 3 games on the Reds and the Pirates up 7 games, is winning the division in reach? Or better yet, at what point do you think the division is out of reach? I know you never say never, especially after some epic collapses the last few years by other teams, but what makes winning the division that much tougher is the Reds having to climb 2 teams.
