    ......And here come the Cardinals!

    Yikes.

    Reds had a chance to bust this open and put away that ailing Cardinal team.

    Frustrating.

    You do know there are about 90 games left right? Kind of hard to put a team away this early.

    I wouldn't be too worried about the standings until about August unless teams are more than 7 or more games out. It's such a long season.

    Yes they should have won a couple more games in the last week, but you have an unrealistic expectation level.

    This is an 87-90 win team in its current construct with more good than bad but some obvious flaws that are well documented on the board. This is simply not a team that is going to blow away the league with a 100-win season and continue to play at a .600+ win percentage.

    Actually no one in the NL may get to more than 92 or 93 wins the way things look at this point. And I expect each division to be a dog fight and the wild cards to be a complete free-for-all.

    The _ardinals will have a rough patch again this season. They'll get swept by someone again. They won't get endless feasts against the Royals and Marlins for long.

    When exactly was our chance to put them away?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    We're in late June - would you consider a 5,6 or even 7 or 8 game lead at this pint "putting them away"? The Reds aren't putting anyone away in June. Now, some teams might put themselves away playing .300 baseball up until now but that's not what we're talking about here. This is going to be nip and tuck all the way I suspect.

    Gotta win 9 out of 10 or I just will not be satisfied.


    On a serious note, with so many individual playing WAY over their head in StL.....I think it would be fair that they should be making the comment about not putting the Reds away.

    Cueto and Votto are the only guys playing out of their mind....Cards have had ridiculous performance from 7 hitters and 4 starters.....so far.

    It has to be Sparky and his lineups.

    Serious question. What record could the Reds have right now, that would make you feel they have "put away" a team that is 40-35. Bear in mind the best team in baseball currently has 46 wins.

    Oh cynics of RedsZone... I believe he was referring to the point that the Cardinals were dealing with injuries and the Reds didn't open up a larger gap... Not to mention that one has to expect Wainwright to get stronger down the stretch...

    But whatever...
