    Spot on. Game thread is most active when they lose or struggle to win. Easy wins are almost always snooze fests.

    It would of been a "got ya" question for sure but I think that playing the worse team in baseball in September when your down 3.5 games is always a must win if you are serious about winning the devision.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    When you are down 3.5 with 12 to play I think every single game is a must win. You won;t win 'em all more than likely but they are all must wins in that position

    Rockies take the lead against the Cards... 2 to 1 in the bottom of the 7th.

    Worked out well, preserving most of the pen.

    Forget the Bengals. Go Rockies!

    Bases juiced for Colorado. Still bottom 7. Two out. New reliever inbound for the Cards. Good game if you have mlb.tv. Surely better than football and we have the vested interest.

    Iwouldn't call it a must win but it was a "will look pretty bad if you lose" game.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    If you're going for the division still, then it's damn near a must win game.

    If the Cards lose too tonight that loss yesturday was even more devistating. Would of been only 1.5 games out...

    We're good again!
    "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 division wasn't referenced on here until a few posts back.
