First let me say that I'm new around here and don't know what's appropriate....having said that I will plunge ahead: The Brews are dead....the Stro's are dead....the Cubs are dead too.
This is a 2 team race now....when I joined the site the Cards were 1 game ahead and have not played a .500 team since (well, Oakland was .500) and now the Reds have the lead.
There is no reason for this team that is the best hitting team in the NL not to step on the Card's neck.
Stop worrying about Dusty...he is no genius but he is no fool, either. Bet the farm that Cards lose tomorro....they will.
If the game was played on paper they would be 15 games over .500.....but the fact is that they have a skipper they hate, and a new batting coach, a bloated fool with a career BA of .260 that never laid down a bunt or went to the opposite field.
I can see these 2 teams going down to the wire in late September....Time for the Reds to get it done....Am I wrong?
