Latos must be unofficial shaving-cream pie-in-the-face guy for this team.
They credited Navarro with a triple. Not that it matters.
If you didn't see that hit by Navarro you need to go watch the replay at mlb.com. He was like a kid in a candy shop running from first to second.
Navarro waving Bruce around as he ran to 2nd might actually qualify as my favorite moment of the year so far. Pure joy, that was awesome! And he just kept running the bases LMAO!
1st game of 2011 and last game of 2012 the Reds beat the Brewers with a last inning game winner from the catcher
I wish we would have tanked this series, now we helped the Cardinals in to the playoffs and gave them a cushion to allow them to set their rotation to anything they want and allow them to start anyone they like in the play in game. So we could have potentially set up out own poison pill.
I would rather play the Giants personally the Reds are 2-0 off Cain this year and the rest of their starters are having issues and are fading down the stretch. The Cards have a team full of banged up bats, by allowing them to get locked up early we are allowing them to rest those guys up to get a second win for the playoffs.
The last thing I want to see if the Cardinals get healthy and hot for a short series.

That's the whole top of their lineup coming into the playoffs due, its kinda scary especially when you factor in..
Career vs Cardinals

They have beat us in 3 of 4 series we played this year. Sucks we could have hand picked who we played but we pulled a Phillies and set up to play our worst match up possible in the DS and give them a chance rest their slumping banged up hitters who had been rode hard trying to make it, and then they get to set up any rotation they like rather than fighting it out to game 162.
If the goal is to win it all, you don't play scared. And the notion that we'd purposefully tank a series out of fear of St. Louis is a losing mentality.
