    Reds are 16-7 in August (.696%)

    Is that good?

    Post all star game 25-13 (.658)

    Over last 30 games they are 20-10 best in the NL, 2nd in MLB behind the twins

    I may be wrong but those seem like good numbers to me.

    Nice bounce back after that awful sweep in Philly (which I was there for 2 of those games, I may add).

    Certainly, at a time where many expected this team to falter, and for the "real" Reds to emerge, we have stepped it up.

    There have been critical moments this season, like the Philly sweep, the St. Louis sweep, and other points, where people felt like this team had been "exposed." It's after those humbling losses that we have bounced back the most.

    How can the magic number to clinch a playoff spot be higher than the magic number to clinch the division?

    It's because Philly and SF have better records than STL for the wild card right now. Our magic number for the wild card is based off of Philly's record, while our magic number for the division is based off of STL.

    But if the magic number for the division is 32, the magic number for a playoff berth would also be 32.

    Ohh.. yeah, that would make sense. Perhaps it's supposed to say 35 is for the wild card.

    Wildcards races are tighter than the division race.

    Its 32 for the division and 35 to clinch a wild card spot.

    I didnt realize that would be so confusing.
