I've been just as frustrated as anyone else with some of the recent games but the attitude around here has taken a turn for the worst. Lets keep in mind that we played the best team in the National League very tough the last three days. Have we endured too many years of losing to enjoy winning? It seems like many people are just waiting for the Reds to fail and with one loss proclaim the season over. Lets all stop and think about this: we're in first place in the WC. Also, as much as anyone can question the Reds, the Cardinals are also shaky and vulnerable. I really believe that this is our year to return to the playoffs and we can do some damage in the National League. I haven't been this excited about the Reds this late in the year for a long time so I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the playoff chase.
