What has to happen for the Reds to face anyone other than the Phillies? Even if the Reds won there last 4 games they would have to hope for the Giants to lose 3 of their last 4 because of the season head to head. If they won 3 of 4 the Giants would have to lose all 4.. Not seeing that happen at all.
The only other scenario is the Padres winning the wildcard over the Braves. For that to happen the Braves would have to lose 2 of 3 at home to a resting Philadelphia team. Then the Padres would have to win 2 of 3 against the Giants. I mean it could happen but you know they are gonna want to get in there for Bobby Cox.
I'm doing this math in my head so if I'm wrong feel free to correct me.
So unless a miracle happens, we will be at Philly next week, so make your plans for Sunday at GABP..
