    Since you've predicted they would lose ever since the season started, I vote you jump now. You know you want to.

    It will be fine.

    One of the great things about this team is when everyone counts them out they rally together and come up with their best performance.

    Votto goes out which would have killed most teams they rally and go on an incredible streak.

    They lose their number 1 starter 8 pitches into a playoff game on the road and they rally together and pull out a great win.

    Now Leake has to start while not ideal something tells me this team once again rallies together and pulls out a game where most don't give them a chance.

    If they don't they always have Latos on full rest tomorrow. If it gets to that point I still like the Reds chances with Latos on full rest against the Giants.

    It's hilarious. The only time this guy posts is after a loss.

    I still think they have what it takes to win one of the next two and 4 in the NLCS even without Cueto. Then if Johnny is able to make it back for the big show, I like their chances there too. There's just something about this team.

    Cueto is out. This team will step up and cover him until he's back. They've done it all year. They're not going to stop now. Next man up. Mike Leake will meet the occasion today. Because that's what this team does. And if he doesn't, Latos will own them in game 5.

    1. Teams don't lose three in a row at home very often. Probability is Reds will win one more game to win the series.

    2. If they lose, we can always take the position that Reds lost their best starting pitcher and did well under these circumstances.

    3. If they lose, we will all have more free time over the next two-three weeks.

    Go Reds.

    The thought of no more Reds baseball feels kinda of like my dog has run away but he'll be sure to be back sometime next spring. My life is less complete in the off season.

    Re: Talk me down from my ledge

    Reds won 97 games, won the division and took the first two playoff games on the road after losing their Cy Young candidate starting pitcher. How can a Reds fan not be happy right now with this season, no matter what happens after this?

    Btw, I could wrong, but if I remember correctly, I believe the BRM also lost a playoff game at least once
