    Before you start thinking WC, you have to get to .500. When we get to .500 then I will look at the WC standings.

    Let's change the season to 188 games. Have a double header everyday until the season ends.

    Even the most extreme optimist should look at it this way. Get to .500, or target it, then see where things are from there.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    too far back, too many teams, too few games left...on the bright side this team can score some runs so you get your moneys worth when you go see them play...much better team then a few years ago...next year is looking better and better!

    The Reds should finish ahead of a number of those teams, but they won't finish ahead of Houston, Philly, Florida, and maybe Washington, but I don't know, if the Reds don't see their pitching re-implode, they could finish in front of Washington.

    Considering how they were playing 6 weeks ago, I think that's an amazing development in itself.

    Re: Are the Reds out of it?

    Think we have a shot at a W/C huh? Hereís a Breakdown of what I think our record may look like, granted I am basing this on how we are playing now w/o Sept call ups etc. Plus you have to hope to make up 9 games on Houston and 7 on Marlins who both have 50 games to play (not counting their games today), as opposed to our 48 (after todayís win) who are the logical choices to win the wildcard.


    The Tough
    6 vs St. Louis (3 GABP, 3 Busch last series of yr) last 2 weeks of season, rest time for Cards? Iím optimistic, we will take 3 of 6 as we will get 2 of last 3 @ Busch to end the season.
    3 @ Braves = We will take 1 of 3

    The Rest
    4 vs S.F. = My gut says 2-2, donít know why because my head says 3-1. But 2-2 it is
    3 vs. Dbacks = 2-1
    3 vs. Phils = 2-1
    3 @ Wash = 3-0
    3 @ Hou = 1-2
    3 @ Cubs = 1-2
    10 vs. Pirates 3 @ GABP 7-3
    10 vs. Brewers 3 @ GABP 6-4

    28-20 + our current record 52-62 = 80 Ė 82 that from an optimist! 80-82 isnít gonna win Dick, but perhaps 3rd place. W/ the Cards & Stros ahead of us, personally I hope we go at least 31-17 and end up 83-81 wouldnít that be something. I say we keep a watch even though, most of us will turn to football and stop paying them much mind. This will give us a reason to watch them at least casually for the rest of the yr. However if we go on a tear between now & the Houston series which is a span of 17 games we could be in it but you are talking minimum 13-4. I dunno but it should be interesting if we are around .500 going in to Houston. But again I am an optimist and I just donít see it.

    BTW Record to be IN the W/C Race in the end 35-13 or something very close.

    Ashes in the mouth.

    But I'm a glass-half-empty guy. Largely because I know the Reds won't carry a strong finish into next season. They're immune to contending.

    LOL jeez must have been all those numbers crunching around that threw me off. How about 30-18 for 82-80!
