    Re: So...is anyone else worried about the Reds?

    The only thing I've been worried about was over the last decade or so, and if this organization would ever turn it around and get their act together.

    And these Reds have scads of pitching and defense and they play intelligent baseball. Think they'll do all right. No deer in the headlights like 2010. This team has maturity. Of course, post-season baseball is incredibly tough and everyone is good. But the Reds have played the good teams well this year. Low scoring games are their forte. They'll be all right.
    Yep. My sentiments exactly. For the most part you're going to see some hard fought, low scoring games due to pitching. The Reds have that, plus an excellent defense, so they'll be in the ball games to the end. But you'll see some small ball playing as teams (managers) employ various strategies trying to scratch/push runs across.

    It's gonna come down, game by game, to who "blinks" first... that bad inning, a pitch you wish you could take back, who got a lucky break. We're talking the "on edge of your seat" baseball which is exciting.

    And there always seems to be those "surprises" in the post-season too. I never thought the Cards would go all the way last year.... but they got hot when one needs to.

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
