    Re: Do you think we'll make the playoffs?

    I just hope we make it back from the West Coast. If we get crushed by the Padres, I am thinking the Reds get on a plane and head into the Pacific Ocean and disappear forever.

    We need a three game winning streak in the worst way. If we do not win all three against the Padres, I will have my flag on the pole ready to raise, and I am one of the biggest Reds fan in the world.

    Honestly, I don't know. We're beat up pretty badly and everyone else in the race seems to be getting hot at the right time. I'll just have to hope for the best. It's been an amazing season. I'd like to see a stronger finish.

    Re: Do you think we'll make the playoffs?

    It's almost over. Although with the wild card in the NL, you never know! There's always hope...

    The Reds are pitching better, but just poorly enough to lose.

    The hitting is just OK, but poor enough to lose.

    The defense continues to resemble a chinese fire drill at times, and that's an insult to the Chinese. especially situational defense, IMO. Some guys just continue to lose focus, it seems, at just the wrong time. For instance, Maddux's safety squeeze last night to make it 4-1, Marty was upset- said the Reds looked surprised by it, when everyone else in the park knew it was coming. I didn't see it, so IDK for sure, just going by what Marty said.

    The Reds sit at .500 right now. As much as I wanted to think this was going to be a fairytale year, it's not. This is a .500 club, which is what many, many folks here were hoping the Reds could get to this year.

    There'll be plenty of blame to go around after the season is over- not enough moves by Kriv, too much tinkering by Kriv, if we'd have brought Homer up, we would have won it, Narron is a moron, Lopez/Kearns trade sunk this team, Bray/Maj sunk this team just by being here, the bullpen is full of gas cans, Griffey is old and slow, Dunn swings and misses too much, and can't play defense, Freel plays too hard, or not enough, or too much, Phillips should have been at SS, and on and on and on (I'm sure I missed something?). And the beauty of baseball is that there are little kernals of truth in all of it. But when the dust settles, and all of the numbers are down in black and white, those numbers will tell the tale of why this team did not reach it's goal this year. I'm looking forward to finding out why, so this team can improve itself to the next level for next year- I'm sick of the stinking Cardinals winning this division every year.

    Why necessarily blame, particularly with the current FO and field management. Yeah, maybe some, but this club came in with its back to the wall. Maybe others here can can lend some historical perspective, but has there ever been a club who made such wholesale changes within a season and stayed in contention nearly to September?

    I don't know how this season will play out, but it has exceeded my expectations and I see a bright future if we're given the chance to remake our system top to bottom, something that has been promised but not really undertaken.

    I'll take congratulations for a good try and let's work to make the Reds one of the best organizations and teams in MLB.

    redsmetz, I agree with your post, totally.

    There is always blame, for everything that does not work out. That's just the way the world is today, a fact of life. My post was partly tongue-in-cheek, as you and I know there will be plenty of blame laid right here, amongst the die hard Reds fans that frequent this board!

    The Reds succeeded in keeping most of the town's interest, all the way up to the beginning of football season this year, that's a big improvement over years past.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what changes Castellini and the FO have in store this offseason, too

    Re: Do you think we'll make the playoffs?

    Wow, I voted no, but I expected more than 10% of the board to vote yes.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Re: Do you think we'll make the playoffs?

    I'm gonna say Yes.

    We have the streaking capability to do it, so I think we can. We win 5 games in a row we are back in first, maybe even competing for the division again.

    Then again, we could crash and burn from here on out - but I'm doubting it!!!

    Re: Do you think we'll make the playoffs?

    I voted yes but am not suprised at all over the outcome. People on here have been wanting the reds to blow it since contention was first mentioned. God forbid next year we are able to spend money in the off season then it will be real hard to keep reds fans negativity affloat. Whats really sad is that the homestand were the reds need the fans the most, alot of fans dont care any moreand wont be there. I for one will be upset if i miss a single game, already have tics for 6 games. Also for all of you who are quitting on the reds after this roadtrip to cheer on the bengals, your stadium is shaped like a womans private area, and i hope it collapses on you while im watching the reds in the playoffs. GO REDS AND BROWNS.

    I say "yes" for now. Silly game this baseball is... and PLENTY of crazyness left to go around. Just as fast as you can the lead, you can get it back. Of course, you'd be hard pressed to convince anyone around here of that...

    Wow, do you really believe that all these die-hard Reds fans on this forum want this team to fail?? I don't agree with all of them, but I do know that they ALL want this Reds team to win. A lot of us just have different ideas of how to get there.

    Re: Do you think we'll make the playoffs?

    Sadly, I voted I dont know. I was hoping to see Homer Bailey on the Sept callup list even if we didnt use him that much. Not like we are going to use 2 pinch runners every game anyways. Maybe he just would of brought a boost to the team. But we do play the Padres 6 times in the next few weeks so its up to this team to rebound from this skid.

    I voted with my heart and went with yes. I'm still hoping!!

    Even if they don't make it, there were a lot of positive moves made this year and it at least gives me some hope for next year.
