    Can you guys please stop winning please?

    The Cardinals have won 9 out of the last 12 games yet lose two games in the standings. Come on Reds, help me out here. Stop winning!!!

    The Cards have arguably the best offense in baseball with a run differential of 102. They have the 4th best starters ERA. Heck, even their 8th/9th innings haven't been bad. It looks like they filled that black hole that was the 6th and 7th inning. It wouldn't surprise me if their final record reflects their run differential. I still don't think we can take the division because the Reds have too much of a lead right now.

    That said, wouldn't it be cool if the WC game consisted of two NL Central teams? It would be nice to see the Pirates and Cardinals duel it out in one game.

    The past two to three weeks have been extremely fun and frustrating at the same time for Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and St. Louis alike.

    All three teams are playing very, very good baseball but can't get any help in the form of other teams losing.

    We will take your request under consideration.
    "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."

    mehh... I still think you guys have the division. I wouldn't worry too much unless you're starting rotation has some injuries.

    Reds 17 games left versus Cubs and Astros, the Pirates and Cardinals 12
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I've posted this another post somewhere but I really think the biggest challenge you will have will be the 7 games you have to play against Phillie. They have a losing record but I don't think that is the kind of team you can fall asleep on and they have the talent to go on a run.

    Correct, could be 6 games of Hamels, Lee, and Halladay.

    Gahh... I guess we'll have to beat the Rockies into submission again tonight. I'm predicting Holliday, whos beasting right now, will hit 3 HR's against his former team.
