My understanding is that the safest way for the Reds to get to the playoffs would be for the Cardinals to beat the Brewers in this series. I'm still pulling for the Reds to take second place, though.

I really don't care about the seeding and actually welcome the Dodgers in their stadium with no fans. With just a three game opening series its the pitching rotation that matters. Gotta clinch the 8th seed and then ready the rotation. Hopefully it will be Wade Miley pitching on Sunday.

I really think this Twins series, with the atmosphere of playoffs, is a decent window into what the Reds can or can't do in the post season. They come out and play lights out against a very good Twins team I think they keep going in post season as well no matter whom they play. The pitching should keep them in every game unless the bull pen explodes. Reds blow this up and lose 2 of three and limp in not a good sign. Get the pitching and some hits or blasts they can play with anyone especially if the pen proves good.

Somehow both Casali and Barnhart are in the top 15 in the majors in catcher WAR.

Thereís few good ones. Itís actually an area where the cost to upgrade probably doesnít make sense and should just ride these two and Stephenson for whatever they are able to do.

The Reds route to the postseason involves the Brewers and Phils collapsing. Which is pretty likely.

I thought we just needed to win. Do we need them to collapse at all?

Mediocre giants starter vs an elite offense.

Maybe like 1/8

Likely over but not insurmountable. Certainly more than 1/100

Seriously though.. I don’t think he should be out there

They aren’t starting Shogo in CF outside of GABP. So it’s Senzel or Goodwin. One issue with Nick is that he hasn’t had much playing time. He looked pretty rusty in that at bat, just flailing. Maybe next at bat.

The dude had an 8 ERA. I didnít realize he was pitching with a broken foot.

I mean the 8era was consistent with nothing in his profile and at the time we acquired him he was 100 innings removed from elite pitching. The fact he regained that us hardly shocking.

But enough about that tonight. Itís a big game. We put fcb through the rigours the other day, and am hopeful heís here today for the right reasons.

I suggest we give benefit of the doubt today and try just to enjoy the game thread with all participants.

Larger OF, Shogo doesnít cover CF as well as Senzel or Goodwin. Particularly with Mahle, a fly ball pitcher.
