    I have no rational reason to believe this, but I have a gut feeling the Reds are going to go on a torrid streak.

    After the Mets' series, I don't have the slightest clue why I think that. Just a hunch.

    Are you sure you just don't have the flu?

    I thought the same thing.

    Maybe just enough to make the rest of the season semi-interesting.

    I can rule out no such diagnosis at this point in time.

    I think the pressure is off now. There was so much frustration, I tend to believe now it's just kind of 'let's roll.'

    I think they certainly have the talent to do so, even in spite of this awful run.

    If they can put together a really good run, they really would be right back in this thing. I feel so naive for still hoping, but I can't help myself.

    All we need is Cordero putting Baker in a chokehold and we are set for a 10 game winning streak.

    It helps that the Reds still have six games against the Brewers. Go 4-2 and that gets it back in striking distance.

    It's amazing how much faith some of you all have. I wish I had it, I'm scared to death they'll blow this game. The Reds would have to go on some crazy 16-4 run over the next 20 for me to get back involved emotionally.

    Jon Heyman tweeted this, for those interested:

    #astros price tag on bourn to #reds said wildly high. Cincy not playing on pence, whose price is even steeper.

    I'm thinking the same thing. And the Cairo comments will be the launching point.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    It might be time to make the Skyline Chili call to the bullpen.

    Two run game, sixth inning, Willis has loaded the bases with nobody out. Dusty showing confidence in the lefty here, leaving him in.

    I'll say this Dusty is due for one of these moves to work.
