    I still have a very bad feeling about this series. Don't mean to be a debbie downer, but I'm already nervous.

    Since the Reds are currently "contending", apparently not.

    I just wish I could watch, or at least listen, to those games. Should be interesting.

    What this says to me is that the Cards have to manipulate their rotation if they are to have a chance. The Reds don't. They can pitch their starters based on what's best for them overall.

    Cards better stop worry about the Reds, and start worrying about the game in front of them, or they might be 6-7 games out come Friday.

    Contend for more than the NL Central.

    They already struggle against Houston as it is, especially Bud Norris. They're (again) throwing all their eggs in the Cincinnati basket, they might trip and crush their eggs against the other teams.

    I don't get this. I want my best pitcher(s) going against them. I assume they're fearing for retaliation from St. Louis? I'm sure that's contributing, but I still want him out there.

    May be more Cincy's concern that the moment and emotions do not get into Cueto's head.

    That's what it says to me too. Larussa is sacrificing his other games to concentrate on the Reds...not very smart when all the games count the same in the standings. In fact, this move may lose them the Wild Card race. Most teams with a weak back end of their rotation move their best starters UP in the rotation at this time of the year. Moving them BACK gives more starts to the worst pitchers. Tony's just TOO smart for me.

    We need to GET to the playoffs before we start worrying about the playoffs.

    That's a good possibility. The fact the Reds aren't taking this seriously as the Cardinals might be working to their advantage. The Reds are grasping the big picture, where the Cardinals continue focusing too much on one team.
