I think we can agree that it's been epically ugly. One for the books.
The key is to make each game its own game, and not the whole season. Or the future as we know it.
Lets take induvidual and collective deep breaths. The Reds are playing Baseball in October, have exceeded even they're own expectations. I'm still satisfied, even though the boys have played rough.
Its one thing to get beat (see Halladay). Its another thing to beat yourself by repeatedly shooting yourself in the foot.
I'm not happy with just being in the playoffs. Maybe in a few months I will be but you have to go into these kinds of games with a killer instinct. You get a team down, you put your foot on their neck and don't let them up. 5 out innings and blown flyballs aren't doing that.
Mind you I do not want Utley to be seriously injured.....but the next time Chapman faces Utley I hope a Chapman fastball does hit Utley. I would like Utley to show us how he acts when a Chapman triple digit fastball actually does hit him.

Yes, this team has exceeded expectations. Yes, I'm just happy they're in the playoffs. Yes, I picked the Phillies in 4. But it's the way this is happening that I'm upset about.
The Reds need Pujols to be shown on the big screen so Lidge can pee himself.
This series has been epically bad so far. The Reds have entered the record books twice in two games, and for horrible reasons. The first no-hitter in the postseason in decades and now they have committed the most errors in a single game in NLDS history. Amateur. Hour.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
Everyone at work was giving me grief after the no hitter. I said how much worse could game 2 be. Who would have thunk this would happen. Can't wait to see game three in person.
