it isn't that much easier than ours is if at all.. they play the mets while we play the dodgers. We do have to play the Padres.. but we also get to play the Pirates.
They play the Nationals, Florida, Atlanta, and Houston for the rest of the year.
It doesnt make it an easy schedule.Originally Posted by redsrule2500
The Pirates swepted the Cardinals about a week or 2 ago.
yea and SOON.. the pirates will not even have a mathmatical chance at reaching the post season.. which makes them VERY VERY VERY dangerous
And they are good too. Rollins, Utley and Howard are the best "big three" in the NL not named Beltran, Delgado and Wright (or Reyes).Originally Posted by redsupport
Utley, Rollins and Victorino all play good D up the middle too. (Wish we had Rollins.)
If the Reds can stay ahead of them it will be an accomplishment to point to in a mediocre year for Wildcard contenders. I still believe it can happen though. Never thought I'd hear myself say this, but we have better starting pitching.
The Reds are going to take the division anyway. Let the Cards worry about the Phillies.

The Reds just need to keep winning and everything will fall into place. Besides, the Phils will choke like they do every year.
Best thing the Phils ever did to help their chances was dump Rheal to some team.
Exactly, the Reds have been doing this for 2 consistent months. Everyone is waiting for the Reds to fall as they do every year and someone to overtake them. Based on where the Reds have been I'd say they'll end the year with nothing short of the Wild Card.Originally Posted by GoGoWhiteSox
