    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.

    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

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

    We wouldn't be talking like this if the bullpen hadn't been strengthened. I think we'll be in the race to the end now.

    If the Reds bullpen acquisition settles down and solidifies the pen we will be in the catbird seat in the Wild Card standings. The Reds bullpen has KILLED them and they are STILL the best non-division leading team in the National League. Amazing.

    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.
