As crazy as it sounds if there ever was a must win-series in June the set against the Redbirds meets most, in not all, of the requirements. The Reds currently languish seven games behind St. Louis in the wildcard race. A Cardinal sweep would put the Reds 10 games back and let the bidding for Adam Dunn (among others) begin in earnest. A number of folks on this board feel that St. Louis is not for real, but they have me convinced. At the very least, ten games back with more than a handful of teams in between is an obstacle of the highest order. On the other hand a Cincinnati sweep puts them just four games back in the wildcard race. That would make it game on IMO. Two wins seems the minimum the Reds could get away with here. So that would, indeed, make this a must-win series in June.
