Reds. Cueto becomes legend.
Reds. They have to be about due.
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.
My heart says Reds but my head says Rats.
I went with my heart.
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.
Reds Fan Since 1971
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.

Tough to beat a team four times in five days.
We've got this.
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.
