I know all the 'experts' and baseball people arent giving the Reds much of a shot, if any. However, I like going into a series being the dog, imagine the pressure we'll put on Philly if we can get to Halladay and take game 1 from them at their place!?
I just like the idea of going in, relaxed and nobody expecting you to win - if we can pull out game 1, the Phils will be pressing and I would much rather face Oswalt with a 1-0 series lead where maybe he'll feel even MORE pressure since they brought him there basically to 'lock' up their WS berth for the year.
Granted their roster and staff across the board is better (and for $141 mil vs our $72 mil) but we just need to go in and play solid d and get some clutch hits like we did the 1st half of the year.
Well, gotta make my time off request from work on Wednesday so I can get home in time to catch the first pitch, it should be fun and hopefully we can steal a couple wins from the pHillies!
