    We're bad again.
    "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."

    This team hasn't been the same since votto returned. And votto is clearly not the same. There's no reason to think anything will drastically change on Saturday.

    Jay Bruce down in one of his infamous slumps once again as is the rest of the team. Lets hope the bats wake up by Saturday night. Please.

    You wrote them off back in May.

    HR swing reminds me of Willie Greene. It looks nice but also lazy....and he fits right in. Barely takes any pitches.

    IF the Reds are not concerned why should we be? I am not trying to be positive either.....it's almost like they are oblivious to it and think they can just get by without it.

    Re: 10/3/12 - Reds at Cardinals

    This post season playoff thing is disconcerting, though. We play two in SF against their two best pitchers and we march out our ace and Bronson in game two, leaving our no. 2 until game three. It's confusing, but if the bats don't wake up, it won't make any difference anyway.

    Actually, that was more of our C team. Even in our B team, Skip Schumaker doesn't bat in the 3 hole. When I saw this lineup, I laughed and almost spit out the water I was drinking.

    This was our starting line-up for Saturday...shut out by a AA-AAA team. I got nothing...
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    A whole bunch of question begging in these comments.

    Would it really prove anything if they scored 5, 10, 15 runs in that game? If Votto, Bruce, Frazier, Ludwick, and Stubbs all hit homers in that game, what would that mean for the playoffs? Would that be predictive of playoff success? Would they be more pumped for Saturday's game and do better? Is baseball about momentum or "peaking"? Do ballplayers really hit better in a current series because they've been hitting good for a week, or in the last few games, or in the last series?

    The moral of this hand wringing about performance in September to me is this: if the playoffs are a crapshoot, which seems to be a clear consensus that I've seen repeated by poster after poster, and the name of the game is just to get there, teams can just get unexplainedly hot during the playoffs...it seems like all bets are off coming Saturday and a new "season" begins.

    Its gonna be a real bummer tomorrow when the "A" team gets taken down then, eh? To watch it all crash and burn in one game after 162 hard fought ones to get that far is a pretty harsh way to go out.

    It also is ludicrous that a team 9 games out in their division after 162 games even gets a shot at the prize. Playoff welfare.
