Reds in 5.
Beat Holladay & Oswalt once & win game 3 vs Hamels.
My head says the Phillies....duh.
However, I've been known to have a clouded thought process from time to time.
Go Reds! A little bit of 1990 could go a long way!
Phils in 4. I've undersold the team all year so why quit now?
The Reds in 4. 'A Team of Destiny'.
Hopefully I am wrong but I think it will be the Phillies in 4. I do think if the Reds can win one of the first 2 games in Philly they have a real chance to pull off the upset.
If they can come out guns blazing against Halladay tomorrow, who knows what might happen. Of course, that's not to say I want them up there hacking. But a crooked number in inning 1 and/or 2 could let EV settle in, and could get the mojo rolling the right way.
Momentum and psyche are a big part of the postseason, IMO.
Halliday is obviously the highest of echelons when it comes to MLB pitchers, but tomorrow will also be his first playoff appearance. Whether or not if effects him, we'll find out
Phillies in 5.
The nice thing is I picked both the Pirates and A's to win their series against the Reds in 90', so I really don't know what the hell I am talking about alot of the time.

One win in Philly tips the scales. Reds in four.
I hope like heck the Reds win.. That's all I know.
I can't sleep I'm so excited/nervous. I just hope Edinson pitches to his true ability. If he does the Reds have a great shot tomorrow.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
I've got the Reds in 5.
I'm not opposed to being aggressive. I just hope they're smart about the pitches they go after, but I guess that goes without saying.
Side note, I was reading on a Philly forum tonight and one poster put up something like "Well, The Reds are 5-30 against the trio of starting pitchers we're running out there, etc. etc."
Guess it never occurred to him/her that 23 of those win belong to Oswalt, and almost all of them came when he was much younger, and The Reds were mired in the lost decade.
