Reds & Nats, 2013 LCS. Take2 (9/13) Reds but no Nats

They are still in a race for 1st. Wood is not good enough IMO to be able to shut you out for 7 innings. Everything this team did for the last 7 games was great....so they decide to phone it in tonight against this team? And we wonder why people get frustrated with this team.
3 at MIL, who now they cannot beat with worse players on that team.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
The Wood part of the equation doesn't surprise me in this loss... What surprises me is the Cubs bats ability to get those two runs.... That's the luck part. What an anemic line up... Whiskey tango foxtrot.
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
Look....if they had been playing better against MIL...I would not be that concerned. With this schedule....winning almost every game until heading to PITT is a must in order to win this division, IMO.
Last I checked these guys are not machines. The drop off tonight against a solid LH could be seen coming. By the middle of the game it was obvious they were flat. After taking 6 of 7 emotion filled, high intensity games I don't understand how folks can't give them a pass for a night.
