    Tragic Number: 1

    How do the Reds force a playoff?

    Reds win out (2 games)
    Cards lose out (3 games)
    Astrose lose 1 of 2

    Any Reds loss or Cardinals win and we are done.

    That being said, it was a fantastic season. They exceeded all of our expectations. Nothing to be ashamed of.

    Even though I know we really have no chance, I am thrilled that we are still in it coming into the last weekend of the season - much better than I had hoped for.
    All in all, I am rather proud of the way the team did. Sure, mistakes have been here and there - but complaining about the same mistakes day after day will not make the past fix itself.
    My hopes for the offseason, next season and the seasons after are much higher than they were last year.

    AT least we have hope on the next to last day of the season. It's been since 1999 that we have a glimmer of hope at this time. It's been a good season all in all and I am excited for the future of this franchise.

    I agree, 44, that it's been a very exciting season, and I don't want to beat a dead horse, but the excitment has nothing to do with the Reds exceeding any expectations.

    They've been Pythag lucky (+4.6) and third-order win lucky (+5.1), but they haven't improved much on thier run-differential from 2005. They simply have scored less and given up less, but that's it.

    Still, it would be pretty cool to win the division. Hopefully they win these next two and the baseball Gods are on our side. It's going to take a mini-miracle.

    Probability Cards lose 3 = .125
    Probability Reds win 2 = .25
    Probabilty Astros win no more than 1 = .75

    Combined probability = 2.34%

    Chances haven't gotten any worse of the last week. They just haven't gotten any better.

    Re: Tragic Number: 1

    Would that be 43-1 odds?

    Reds will make the playoffs. Go to Vegas and bet your life savings on it.

    I would but I already invested the life savings on Enron and WorldCom stocks... if all works as planned, then I will buy the REDS someday!
