    Huge...no, we're talking colossal...relief with this game.

    Here's the thing for those who worry most (not me, though I certainly do worry). With rare exception the Cincinnati Reds don't do collapses. That's Pittsburgh's department. We can, and often do, underperform and fall short of expectations.

    This year, it feels pretty damn likely we'll again make the postseason but I'd really, really like to see the team make a serious run for the division. It's still very doable. And that would make some postseason durabilty more likely.

    I'm in DC. I come to Cincinnati 2-3 times each year for games. Have already been twice this year and will catch them at PNC in a couple of weeks. But, I decided after last year's LDS debacle that I wouldn't spend the money on postseason tix unless they make the LCS.

    So, let's keep this winning going. Let's get to the LCS if not WS so I can come witness it myself!

    This has been a Public Service Announcement for Dusty, Joey, Brandon, JJ, Zach, Bronson, Billy, Bruce, Shin-Soo, Todd, Ryan, Homer, Mat, Mike, Devin, Aroldis and the others.

    I know losing the series to the Cubbies was unexpected, but still a 7-3 homestand meets any kind of reasonable expectations. Even if we had won the series as expected, it would have been 8-2, and that would have been unexpected in any kind of combination. So, not a disaster.

    Don't forget, even the mighty Turd Birds lost a series at home to the Scrubbies.

    Yep, usually the teams that brag about "leading the league in DP turned" have bad pitching staffs that allow lots of baserunners.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Same reason why GIDP'ing on offense a lot is typically a good thing.
