    Talk about unreasonable expectations.

    Our group of choke artist should be 74-57. If they weren't choke artist that is.

    Makes sense.

    I don't see the Reds squandering opportunities. I see them taking advantage of them. Not in the last 3 days but for the season.

    And just for the record, to have not squandered our latest opportunity at first place, the Reds would of had to sweep the Giants just for a shot to take over the top of the division tonight.
