    What happens if the Reds and Nationals tie?

    Anyone know what the tie-breaker is for the Reds vs. the Nationals? Having home field in the NLDS likely means not having to make a west coast trip, which has to benefit the Reds.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    I heard TV guys say last night the season head to head series would break the tie. In that case the Nats would have it. They won the season series 5-2.

    That's what I was afraid of.

    Unless of course the Nats lose in the NLCS, then we wouldn't have to worry about that.

    If the Dodgers win the wild card game, then both we and the Nationals will be making West Coast trips....

    Rock Paper scissors did not make the list. Here are all the playoff tiebreaker rules.

    Determining Home-Field Advantage in Two-Team Tiebreakers

    1. Head-to-head winning percentage during the 2012 regular season.
    2. Higher winning percentage in intradivision games.
    3. Higher winning percentage in the last half of intraleague games.
    4. Higher winning percentage in the last half plus one intraleague game, provided that such additional game was not between the two tied clubs. Continue to go back one intraleague game at a time until the tie has been broken.
    5. Dance-off
    Here is the 99 danceoff vs the Mets. American Pie: The Wedding - Dance Off - YouTube
    Corky Miller was the Reds dancer but I am not sure how the Mets got Seann William Scott to be their rep.

    For what it's worth, I think the Reds have an easier end to the season than Washington. That of course doesn't mean anything and Dusty may start resting players after the Reds clinch.

    I wouldn't be so sure. Every team the Reds play after the Cubs are all contenders for the wild card spots.

    "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."

    I was counting the 2 Cubs games as part of that for sure.

    Reds:
    2 @ Cubs
    3 vs Dodgers
    3 vs Brewers
    3 @ Pirates
    3 @ St. Louis

    Nationals:
    4 vs Dodgers
    3 vs Brewers
    3 @ Phillies
    3 @ Cardinals
    3 vs Phillies

    The Brewers and Cardinals series' are a wash. The Dodgers series is mostly a wash.

    So would you rather have 2 games at the Cubs and 3 games at the Pirates or 3 games at Phillies and 3 games vs Phillies? I think I'll take the Reds predicament all day.
