    Out of the realm of possiblilty? Technically, no.

    Likely? Hardly...too many factors


    However, it's at least interesting!
    Going to the last series of the season, we still are mathematically alive for the postseason.

    If you had told me that before the season I would have taken it in a heartbeat.

    This is by no means a dissapointing season. It's one of hope.

    The Cardinals losing 4 out of 5 isn't totally out of the realm of possibility. Likely? No. Possible? Yes.

    The Astros losing 2 out of 3 to the Braves on the road isn't totally out of the realm of possibility. Likely? Probably not. Possible? Yes.

    The Reds sweeping the Pirates isn't totally out of the realm of possibility. Likely? Probably not. Possible? Yes.

    The Indians game.

    There are alot of games we shouldn't have won, but there are alot of games we shouldn't have lost either.

    They tend to even out.

    100% of them, I believe. He may be faced with writer's block this year.

    The Astros aren't going to lose 2 of 3.

    I'll be surprised if they lost 1 of 3.

    The Pirates have been almost as hot as the Astros have been as of late.

    Just for kicks....what would happen in a 3 way tie? I think we win because we won the division series against them both...right?

    No. You play a 3 team tournament

    It been discussed on here before. Reds would get a bye, then go on the road.
