You know, I like everyone else was distraught last night. I had thoughts of not going to Great American Ballpark on Sunday because I was so upset. Then a nights sleep happened and I started putting things in perspective this morning.
This team has gotten us talking about Reds baseball in October again. They didn't make all those errors on purpose last night. They have come up big again and again for us this season and had a bad night. I mean to be honest the last two games really couldn't have been any worse than what they were. I know it's a long shot to comeback and win this series, but stranger things have happened. Like getting a no hitter thrown against us in the postseason and making 4 errors in one game.. I'm in no way predicting a comeback but the way crap has gone this season it honestly wouldn't surprise me. Maybe what this team needs is a little positive home crowd vibe for a couple of games.
No matter what happens though I'll be there at GABP cheering on the Reds. It's going to take us, the fans, to help the Reds get back into this series. I honestly think things have to go up a little because it's been about as bad as a series could go.
If the probable happens and we get eliminated the next two days, I'm going to be there at the end and giving this team a standing ovation. They have brought the sport of baseball back on the radar in Cincinnati and I have a pretty good feeling it is here to stay for a few years.
As a fan base we need to pick up this team and encourage them instead of bash them today and tomorrow. I know it's a long shot but if we some how get two wins at home anything can happen in game 5.
