    C'mon, admit it, you did it too........

    You took a peak at the standings after our win today

    Yeah, me too. Glutton for punishment I guess.

    Weird thing is, that if we can somehow win out (stop laughing) at that point, the Cards/Astros don't even need to TOTALLY fall apart-- just finish below average. I guess all I'm saying is that w/ 6 games left we still haven't been eliminated. I am "excited" about the upcoming week? Well, no. But yeah, I'll be taking a peak at the scoreboard tonight. You will too

    Yeah, I admit- I can't let go yet- I know it isn't gonna happen, but I guess pretending make it more interesting, and I never did the pessimism thing too well.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    We're only four games behind the Cardinals. It certainly helped that the Astros swept them this weekend. Of course, we now have another team three and a half games behind the cardinals, which would be...the Astros.

    Five and a half back in the wild card, behind Houston, Dodgers, and the current WC leader, which is, terrifyingly, the Phillies.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I calculated the chances of getting AT LEAST a three way tie for the division at 2.13%.

    The wild card is much more remote.

    i did too...i kinda always doubted the 99 team --i just dint give my heart away to them because i dint think they could pull off the kind of streak they pulled off the last half of the season ....so i missed out on much of the joy --course i was in grad school then too and i felt like if i got to involved with the reds- i wouldn't be able to keep my studies together --so yeah, i got a masters out of it -but what did i give up? true love? ---if i had to do it all again ....i'd woulda still got the masters, but i woulda peeked a whole lot more.... god, i love baseball.

    Cards lose again. What am I missing? Are the Cards on pace to play 161? Do they have an "if necessary" game with someone?

    Astros win and Cards loss put REDS normalized probability of AT LEAST a three way tie at 2.84%.
