Let's get a few more in so I feel good about the idea of Wade Miley.

Exciting times folks.

Maybe not Jay Bruce 2010 home run, but I’m gonna say close.

A legit postseason contender.
I dunno man, I think it’s right up there.

2014-2019 has been every bit as bad as the lost decade in my mind. We witnessed some truly awful baseball and BRYAN PRICE managing our favorite team.

Combine that with covid, the lockdowns, everything going on in the world... The Reds picking themselves up off the mat and making the playoffs would be sooooo huge.

The only thing that makes sense is that Archie Bradley is secretly a hand model, and is secretly so attracted to his own handsí beauty that he is not master of his domain, and that his right hand is currently stuck in a claw like position.

If that is happening, I understand the decision to warm up Miley. Anything else and Iím upset.

That's what I've been saying.

The way the pitching is rolling I'd be comfortable with our chances any way, 3/5/7 games. But a shortened series with our 1-3 just increases our odds.

After the 1995 season I just assumed the Reds would be one of those teams that was more or less always relevant- in playoffs or at least in race most years with exceptions here and there. Well.... 25 years later and this is our fourth appearance since 1995; so I am savoring it and enjoying it. Fantastic clutch finish to this season. And we absolutely have what it takes to make noise in October. I don’t “trust” the bats fully yet, but the pitching is so stout and lately we’ve been scoring enough when it matters. Very much looking forward to this playoff run— and yeah, I shouldn’t look ahead, but Arlington is barely a 4 hour drive from me... and sounds like fans will be allowed...

2010 was exciting because it had been a long time. Going into Philly, I never felt confident.

2012. Yeah, my hopes were up.

2013. Squeaked in, never really hopeful of playoff success.

2020. Hopes are up. Good of a chance as anyone.

Posted this elsewhere...I don't necessarily feel the same elation as I did getting to the playoffs in 2010 and 2012, but damn do I feel so happy for some of the longtime Reds who have played through some crap years - Suarez, Barnhart, Lorenzen, Iglesias, Disco, Garrett. And of course, Votto for getting at least one more chance in the playoffs.
