    Leading wild card again

    The Reds jumped back into the lead for the wild card last night with the Dodgers loss to the Cardinals.

    Is there any doubt we would have lost the last 2 games without Guardado on the scene? We may or may not have gotten fleeced, but at least these 3 additional arms give us all hope for the rest of the season instead of watching it fritter away.

    I am happy we got Guardado. The other arms have yet to prove anything in a Reds uniform, but I am sure they will pan out, nonetheless.

    I like Everyday Eddie's energy.

    And I like what I am hearing about the National imports talents.

    Some talent and some energy. Minus Todd Coffey, two things we haven't had a lot of.

    We need to win the division. I do not want to play the Mets in the first round. Although, if we have to, we have to.

    I like our SP vs theirs and our "O" vs theirs in their park.

    Getting the wildcard isn't necessarily a bad thing if you go by recent history. Astros last year, Red Sox in 2004, Marlins in 2003, Angels and Giants in 2002.

    I would much rather have the division. I would hate to play the Mets. They are really good.

    If you want to go to the World Series, you are going to have to play them anyway. Might as well play them while they have probably had it on cruise control for a few weeks.

    Elizardo who has been cosistent but may not be able to handle the pressure at 23?

    Or Milton who has gone through it before but has shown a higher degree of suckitude than Ramirez thus far in the regular season?
    Depends how the 2nd half goes. If the playoffs started today I would go with EZ.

    However lets not get ahead of ourselves.

    somebody else could beat them first. I don't see how they won't be in the World Series, but that is why they play the games.

    Re: Leading wild card again

    If you have to play the best team maybe it's better to play them in the short series. I like our top starters as much as theirs. Anything can happen in a short 5 game series.
    2006 Redszone Prospect Draft - Johnny Cueto
    2007 Redszone Prospect Draft - Pedro Viola, Alexis Oliveras
    2007 Redszone Mock Draft - 1st (27) Michael Burgess, Supp. (60) Wes Roemer, 2nd (92) Barry Enright, 3rd (122) Jonathan Bachanov
    2009 Redszone Mock Draft - 1st (9) Shelby Miller, 2nd (58) Marc Krauss, 3rd (89) Daniel Fields
