    time to start worrying?

    I know I should't get ahead of myself but right now this team is just playing terrible and I guess I am probably the biggest negative person on this board but, facts are facts and right now the REDS are just not getting it done. our offense besides of gomes tonight has just been awful, it's just been awful for our offense lately.

    I'm telling you, everybody that was printing playoff tickets already better be waking up from their sleep because right now it doesn't look good, terrible effort if you ask me. this division is far from over, right now the cardinals are about to be 6 games back, I say I am worried alittle bit, we still might win it but this doesn't look like a playoff team right now and I love the REDS more than anybody, it's just awful right now.

    Hate to say it, but Cards are due to get hot. If this lead gets to four games by early next week I think the Reds might be in trouble. Simply put, the Reds are not playing well at all.

    If Chris Welsh says we're going to the playoffs, then we're going to the playoffs!

    the Reds July dive is just last this year. They will probably hang on but I bet it's a lot closer than 6 games by the end. And yes I am worried, I see two teams starting to move in opposite directions.

    Which two teams are you talking about?

    the Cardinals who have won 3 or their last 4 and the Reds who have lost 3 of their last 4.

    Re: time to start worrying?

    I think the hardest thing for any athletic team to do is finish things off, especially young players. I feel the Reds are playing tight and afraid to lose, not only is the team struggling at the plate but we are seeing defensive lapses that this team hasn't had. The scary thing is the Cards are good enough and have the pitching to run on a 10-12 game winning streak and the Reds have enough question marks and lack of a bench to lose 10-12 games in a row. I'm not say either will happen but nor do I want it to happen but I think it is far too early to say this thing is in the bag.

    But hey in March if you told us that the Reds would have a 6 game lead on September the 18th I would have said I'll take it and I must say it beats the alternative of the last 10 years when these games didn't mean anything. So I guess we will sit back and enjoy the last two weeks, remember even though the Reds have had a winning month every month so far it has by far been anything but easy wins.

    The Cards don't have the pitching depth to get past a 3 game winning streak, yet alone over 10.

    I hope you right and I'm wrong. However, they just won two in a row with Westbrook and Loshe, they certainly can win three in a row with Garcia, Wainright, and Carpenter. That puts them at 5. Westbrook looked really good last night, he had the ground ball going and lots of DP's. Loshe has now beaten the Braves and Padres in back to back starts. We all no that the three headed monster is about to get going again.

    But the Reds can take care of their own position by winning series.
