    He is who we thought he was, says Dennis Green. I'd just assume see Stubbs in the 2 spot.

    Not too worried yet, I'd feel a lot better if they don't get swept.

    You might want to recheck those stats.

    Or they're just concerned that the team is not playing well right now.

    Just a little perspective which I hope can be helpful, in 1990 the Reds were 5 1/2 games up on the Dodgers (who we were actually playing at this time in 1990) and had just completed a 4-6 stretch. That would be largest lead we'd have the remainder of the season, although it only got as close as 3.5 games up. We finished five games up and I just heard at the HOF exhibit, the 1990 club clinched the latest of any Reds club.

    I'm still a little concerned, but like where we at (which is my broken record these days).

    Just a bit of a clarification. We're now through game 148 with a 6 game lead, the 1990 Reds through the same number of games were 4.5 games up. If we play like we have (.400 clip), the Cards still need to go like 11-5 the rest of the way. It looks like it's going to be a Cordero finish to the season though.

    If you can't just sit back and enjoy this season, then some people need to find another sport. There are going to be ebbs and flows to a baseball season.
    That's not a RedsZone problem, that's a you problem.
