    Can this happen? Yes. Will it happen? HIGHLEY unlikely.

    The Reds at this point have to hope they hold on to the Wild Card and that dreaded 1 game playoff.
    You are also forgetting to mention that the Cards and Pirates still play 8 more times this season. The Bucs face us 6 times and the Cards face us 7 times before the season is out. Hoping those two split and us winning respective series will go a long way to ensuring a repeat division winner.

    Ten days later, all that great figurin' is meaningless, lol.

    3 1/2 back with 43 games to play, including 6 with the Bucs.

    Not sure it's likely, but it's definitely not highly unlikely anymore.

    Simply taking four out of six against the Pirates and the Reds are 1.5 games back...

    Re: I'm not sold on the Pirates

    this late in the year we cannot count on other teams to beat the cards and pirates, we need to at the very least win each series we play against them.....and hope we can eeek out a sweep of one or both at least once....

    The cards have had their hot streak this year....the Pirates have had their hot streak this year.....heck even the Brewers have had a hot streak.....we have not. if we can find a way to put together one good hot streak then I think we can win the central......but we are not going to win it by playing like we have for the year.....we need to start winning 7 out of 10 the rest of the way.

    we can almost say for a fact that the cards and pirates will play 500 baseball from here on out....as long as we get on that hot streak then we can make up a game every 10 days then we will be fine.....we just cant lose any games over those 10 day stretches...I like looking at the chase for the central in 10 game stretches.....it helps with not getting to high or low on a single game or 2.....its kind of like the old golf thread that kingspoint would do every year.....I wish he still did that..he was always one of my favorite posters here....I dont see him much around here anymore.

    Wasn't it less than 10% a week ago?

    Seven very productive days for the Redlegs. Hooray for the Cubs.

    Negative...personally, I can't stand the taste of beer. I know...I'm weird. I don't remember the last time I drank a beer, honestly. I'm thinking maybe Jack and Coke.

    Congrats, in all seriousness.

    2010 was like heaven for me as a Reds fan and we only had to endure 2001-2009 as far as losing seasons is concerned.

    I can't imagine what you guys must be feeling right now.

    Indeed. No fan of any team should have to endure so much losing, and believe me when we say that the city of Cincinnati knows all about that. Enjoy this next month before we beat you to a pulp in the playoffs!
