    Doug, I respect your opinion on scouting matters, but you are way off on this one, as others have pointed out. I flew back from Montana, specifically to catch a ballgame this year. I have rooted for this team since I went to a game at Crosley Field in 1969. I simply think they are playing like crap right now.

    I often read the "hot" team going into the playoffs will win it all. If that is even remotely accurate, the Reds have no chance. I attended games in '75 (loss) and '76 (win), but watched from afar in '90. I am old enough now to know that winning the WS is a truly remarkable and special event. The Reds pull it off this year, and I will be thrilled. AND surprised. I simply can't see it happening.

    I hope the Reds win. I'll be rooting like heck for them. But I just don't think they will. Losing the last five games like they did left me wondering if they have just hit empty on the gas meter.

    By Tuesday I'll be convinced we're about to run all over the Pirates. Right now I'm still shellshocked from the last 5 games.

    Although I voted that the Pirates will win, it still wouldn't shock me to see the Reds win the whole thing. I think they have the pitching to do it. I kept waiting all season for the Reds to put together that sustained run of excellent baseball, but they never really did. I hope October is when they finally do it.

    My sentiments exactly, I have been REDS fan since the days of Jim Maloney, Lee May and Bobby Tolan; however i took off my rose-colored glasses 20+ years ago. After agonizing through this past weekend my gut tells me that the Reds are spent and the Pirates are the better team. I see no urgency or drive in the Reds players, the Pirates are in the same situation as the Reds and they came to win. Home field advantage was at stake this weekend, not to mention the Reds had a shot at a Division title after the first game vs. NY, but they rolled over... I hope up I am sooo wrong

    Reds have now lost 5 in row 3 times this season. They never lost 6.

    I'll take the Reds!

    Dusty is a mad, mad genious! There was a reason we got swept by the Pirates...very, very hard to beat the same team 4 games in a row!

    Incredible foresight and thinking!

    I really like Cueto starting the game. But, I just don't trust this offense against Liriano. I know they have done decent against him, but I think the Pirates win at home.

    I think if this team can somehow get to a 7 game series and throw Cueto, Latos, Bailey, Arroyo, Cueto, Latos, Bailey they will win the World Series. Tough part is getting there.

    Strangely, I think our dropping 3 straight has increased our chances of winning the WC game. This team plays it's best when desperate and angry. Unfortunately Dusty has never figured out a way to make them a little desperate and angry game in and game out. The Pirates did us a favor.

    Because if I had $50, I sure as heck wouldn't bet on the team that just got swept by their upcoming opponent.
