    Poor H-Rod doesn't seem too comfortable in front of the camera here.
    "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."

    Screwy thing with the magic number is that the Reds could clinch after their game if they win and Cards lose because of central time zone difference. So the walkoff celebration like 2010 may not work out this year.
    Cards play in the afternoon both days. So we'll know before the game tomorrow if that's the clincher. Saturday they start at 2 to our 4 I believe, so that day could be trickier. I'm rooting for the Cubs tomorrow, since I'm going to the game tomorrow night.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    And the Cardinals play before the Reds on Saturday too, so the Reds might be in a situation where they don't get to clinch with a win.

    Marty B. has the weekend off, and will not be in the booth when they clinch this weekend. This will be the first time he won't have the call.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    It's fun to see the Reds win and all but what's happened to our power? We hit one HR on the roadtrip. That's not like this team

    Might not be like the team, but I'm glad to see they can win without relying on the long ball.
