ok so the division should be a lock 99.9% and a magic number of 3 with like 16 games left (8 for us to get wins and 8 for the cards to lose) but....the big picture is slipping away. We have slipped out of second seed as of today. SD and SF are battling it out flipping back and forth up and down by .5 games and leaving us in the dust as they go. The phillies are on an 11 game win streak. and disappearing over the horizion as they leave the rest of the league behind. meanwhile the Reds seem to be relaxing with their magic number of 3 and thinking 'we're fine. surely the cards will lose at least 3 or we will pick some up at home'
I hope Dusty has a plan, Votto has some antibiotics and the Reds start playing the winning way they were playing, again. (remember the rallies, the come backs the extra inning wins the no matter what we will win this game attitude we had when we were running down then fighting off the cards? we need to get that back or there will be a city full of fans holding worthless scraps of paper that used to be postseason tickets as our Reds are eliminated in some far away land.
I know the division is locked but what is the plan then? ok you caught it now what are you going to do?
