    It's August 22nd...the Reds are 1 game out, and are 2-3 games (depending on the late games) AHEAD in the Wildcard.

    Read that over and over again, because it is hard to believe.

    The Reds are the best team in the division. Gotta keep going though.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    There are a lot of people here who need to do just that.
    This is so much fun. I know the Reds have problems, but man this makes me happy, having my team in the running after the trade deadline...and hopefully much later.

    Lost somewhere was the fact that tonights victory over the 'stros clinches the season series (Now 9-2 with 4 left IIRC).

    Add to that the 9-6 series win over the Cards...

    Quote from Lance Berkman after tonight's win:

    "The way those guys are playing now, they have to be the favorite," Lance Berkman said, referring to the wild-card race. "They're a very resilient team. They're playing better as a team than they are individually. They have a knack of winning baseball games. That's something special you can't put your finger on."
    Great quote! Gotta feel good about that.

    I hate Berkman when he kills the Reds, but he has always appeared to be nothing short of a class act. On and off the field.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    I totally agree.

    Earlier this season, he was interviewed on Real Reds. It was awhile ago, so I can't the gist, but I remember thinking at the time "Wow! That was an impressive interview and he seems like a truly level-headed, down-to-earth nice guy".

    I just wish they'd learn not to pitch to him.

    Re: One game back...

    I said it a week ago i'll say it again.

    We will be in first place by Friday Night.

    Actually we SHOULD be in first place tomorrow but it'll more than likely be a Tie, but Friday we should stand alone atop the NL Central in AUGUST!!!

    GOOOOOOOOOOOO REDS!!!! Lets get another no doubter tomorrow

    I liked what Narron had to say in this a.m.'s DDN:

    CINCINNATI — It isn't often Cincinnati Reds manager Jerry Narron gets lured into direct conversation about his team's chances to play in the World Series, but a Houston columnist opened him up a bit.

    "With the way the National League is, few teams over .500, I'm not surprised by anything that might happen," he said. "There has been a belief in our clubhouse since spring training that we had a chance to be competitive. This is an opportunity year for everybody. Everybody feels like if they can get into the postseason anybody can get into the World Series.

    "The New York Mets have the best team, best talent, but everybody else in the league figures if they get into the playoffs they can get to the World Series," Narron said.

    "What has kept us going is being resilient after some real ugly games. The guys don't get down, they come out the next day and play well and play hard. I don't know if that's being tough mentally or just being knuckleheads. Everybody picked us to finish last, and these guys want to prove we're not a last-place club," Narron said.

    I'm not trying to be a party pooper here, but don't forget that the LOSS column is more important than games back. We are still two back in the "L" column, FYI.
