    The Reds are going to San Francisco...

    With the Nationals victory this afternoon, and their 5-2 advantage in head to head play against the Reds, they have locked up the #1 seed.

    That means the Reds go to San Francisco as the #2 seed.

    The good news is that the Reds don't have to watch the wild card game to see where they play. The bad news is that we will face Cain and Bumgarner in San Francisco, where they are very tough. However, the Reds have beat Cain twice this year. Can they do it again?

    Listen, the Reds weren't drawing the Astros in this upcoming series. There are no easy matchups. Braves and Cards have played very well too.

    Reds will be focusing on a split in SF with Latos available for game three. That would be good.

    Tonight becomes a meaningless game. It should be a AAA game except for Jay Bruce going for 100 RBI and Homer Bailey going for his second consecutive no hitter.

    I can't believe you jinxed him like that, now it probably won't happen.

    You didn't hear? To get two straight no-hitters, you need to talk it up. It's a reverse jinx.

    In 1938, all the talk shows and blogs openly discussed a double no-hitter. That's why it happened.

    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    Reds split against Bumgarner and Cain in SF back in June.

    That means this will be the schedule of game days. Probably won't know times for a few days but I expect Game 1 to be around 9:30 Saturday night.

    Reds @ Giants Saturday, October 6 TBS TBA
    Reds @ Giants Sunday, October 7 TBS or MLBN*** TBA

    Giants @ Reds Wednesday, October 10 TBS or MLBN*** TBA

    They are also speculating that Sunday nights game will be at 10:30. I never remembered them having playoff games that late before. Guess Ill just have to be tired at work on Mon. its the playoffs who cares right?

    Sunday will probably either be late afternoon or 10:30. TBS has a game scheduled for 10:30 but they could put the A's in that spot too if they end up hosting games this weekend.

    10:30 would really not be good for my boys, who have school Monday. I'm off on Monday for a cheesy government holiday so it don't matter to me..

    It just struck me that when the Reds made the NLDS last they faced a pitcher who had thrown a perfect game during the season. With Cain, they will again be facing a pitcher who threw a perfect game during the season. Hopefully the results will improve this time.

    That being the case, skip Homer tonight, start Redmond and get Homer set for game 2 at SF.
