    Didn't the pictures start with #27? Myers and Harris both wore #28. (Harris also wore #7 in his first stint with the Reds.)

    At their current pace, Reds would go 17-12 to finish the season. That puts them at 95-67.

    If they were to finish at that record, just to tie, St. Louis would need a 26-5 record.

    I'd also like to point out that a 100-win season while extremely unlikely is within the realm of realistic possibility.

    We need a 22-7 finish. Not unheard of, especially with how we played in August. You never know. I kind of want to see how many wins we can get without using up those 7 losses. If we set out sights on 100 wins, the rest takes care of itself.

    Simply an incredible stretch over the last three weeks with a 14-4 record coinciding with an improbable 5-13 stretch from the Cardinals. A nine game swing in three weeks and +4 games in 4 days.

    No BP for a week, no problem. Jay Bruce carries the club for four games and then misses a couple as a late scratch, no problem. Rhodes needs a few days off, no problem. Call up a phenom for maybe the ages and he delivers with a presence heard round the baseball world. This team is simply unbelievable right now and after the lost decade it seems only that much sweeter.

    One win over the weekend can pretty much wrap this thing up. 2 of 3 and its over before Labor Day. Still paranoid about the four game stretch in Colorado, but going 5-1 against the Cubs/Brewers really shows the day in and day out focus of this special club.

    They won 96 in '99 I believe, and 91 in '90. What did they do in '95? They had the best record in baseball in '94 when the strike hit, didn't they?

    They won 85 in 1995. The season was only 144 games that year due to the strike extending into the 95 season.
    The Reds had the 2nd best record in the NL in 94. The Expos had the best in all of baseball.

    After last night they'll need a 22-6 finish. Making the playoffs matters more anyway and, at this point, they should be in pretty good shape there. The next thing I'd care about is home field advantadge. Right now the Reds would have it. But barely.
