Let me tell you about how satisfied I am with this recent turn of events: very very satisfied.
6. Sweep. Hot.
Won a series in Yankee stadium and followed up by a four game sweep of the Braves. Is there a team in the league that wants to play the Reds right now?
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
Reds now 25-19. If the Cardinals would lose, we'd be in first place.
Now if Philly could wake up after they put 6 the 1st two innings....and seem to have fallen asleep.....the Reds could be in 1st place.
Wigginton just popped up with bases loaded against a rookie pitcher up 1-0......classic aggressive hitting which drives everyone nuts here.
The Reds' rotation is silly good right now.
4 game sweep of the Braves?
I'm really going to enjoy going to work tomorrow.
Damn it feels good to be a Redleg. This team is on fi-yah.
Great series...to be fair. McCann sat 3 games and no chipper. Pretty week lineup IMO. Great results though.
VBR IS LIVING IN CINCINNATI...I FEEL GOOD!
Phils up 9-7 on the Cards in the 6th.
First place looms.
94 and winning the division and the NLCS but falling in the WS to Toronto in 6
94 Reds / 86 Cards / 85 Pirates / 76 Cubs / 72 Brewers
Most fun I've had at the ballpark in a long, long time. Watching the grand slam sail to the fair side of the pole right in front of me was awesome. The crowds this week have been electric.
Reds in first as Cards scared me, but lose. They can hit and will be a factor all year.
