I hope the Reds remember to wear flowers in their hair during this trip.

I just felt like we matched up better with Atlanta or even St. Louis who will need to expand a lot of energy just to get in. Plus we just have to go out west. Have to split. Really have to win game one because Arroyo just isn't cutting the mustard as a game two starter. Just my internal thoughts.

Late start is also another advantage to the home team.

The way things are looking now if Oakland gets the 2 seed I think the time for the Reds first home game will probably be 6:07 PM ET Tuesday. I think that would be the time because there would only be 2 games scheduled that day and Oakland would host the other probably at 9:37. So that is just a guess but if the Yankees keep this lead that is the time I expect for Tuesday. No clue on when the other home games may be but I am pretty sure that will be the time Tuesday
Considering the Reds current offensive slump, I think going into a pitcher's park with strong pitching one their side is a plus. Reds aren't going to score too may runs wherever they play, might as well play in a park where runs are scarce for everyone.

“This one was a perfect one. I don’t know if I can find a better one, better timing. He [Price] really said some great things there. It really encouraged us to go back and do what we do. … I didn’t know he could speak like that.” Brayan Pena 5/21/14
