The final twist of the blade on this season would be for the Marlins to end up ahead of the Reds. And they can tie in the standings tonight.

I picked the REDS to go 78-84, so I guess they are on a mission to prove me wrong! (or simply exceed my expectations)

I'd say the Reds' only hope for tonight is that Nolasco's going for the Marlins (he should really stay a reliever).

Glad to see Denorfia in the lineup and in center field again. In the month of September over 46 plate appearances, Chris is hitting .381/.422/.524, good for a .946 OPS.

In 146 career major league plate appearances, Denorfia has a .361 on-base percentage. In 2005 in Louisville, Denorfia posted a .391 on-base percentage, and then he followed that up with a .409 on-base percentage this season for the Bats.

That and the fact Cabrera has shortened his swing to try and win the batting title. He'll probably get 4 singles tonight.

Denorfia and Hatteberg lead off with singles, and Encarnacion follows with a walk. The bases are loaded with Dunn and nobody out.

Meanwhile, Marlins catcher Matt Treanor has apparently been ejected, presumably for arguing balls and strikes.

Also mentioned that Towers may be out as general manager of the Padres.

Sandy Alderson's running the show now in San Diego, and he's probably one of the most brilliant baseball men that's worked in the game in the last 20 years. He just hired Paul DePodesta a few months ago, and it wouldn't surprise me if Alderson replaces Towers with DePodesta.

Yeah but the most important part of your statement is that the Reds are done, which I agree with.

And for the first time in Reds' history, a Reds' pitcher retires Wes Helms.

Only 3 games left, and there is still a chance. Not bad.

Now we just have to work on Henry Blanco. Maybe some day....

I'm still not one of those holding out playoff hopes. Hoping for a >.500 record. Nice effort from the guys tonight, especially Lohse.

Do we want that guy next year? He's been a helluva mixed bag with us, which seems to be his modus operandi. When he looks good, he looks REALLY good. When he is bad, there are few worse. My opinion? We could probably do worse for a 5th starter.

Looking ahead to Pittsburgh...I have never heard of two of the three pitchers they'll be starting. You'd think that'd bode well, right? Right. but we are Reds fans after all.

Right. but we are Reds fans after all.Unfortunately, every time the Reds face a young, or an "unknown" starting pitcher--they seem to be completely baffled by his stuff for darn near seven innings.

Belisle...you see what happens.If we get to this start 2-0, then you will see "all hands on deck" for that game.

We actually have 3 pretty good match-ups. I don't mind our chances of winning all 3, but we of course will need some help from the other teams.

I'm not gonna lie..........

I'm enjoying the hell out of this Cardinals collapse.

Say I am jealous or whatever, but I really, really am happy.

Ok, yer jealous....

Put me in the category of "whatever" - I don't envy STL as much as I'm just tired as hell of em.

Living in the middle of Cards country and loving this collapse.

Maybe one good thing about this year is we can stop hearing about legend and Adam Dunn in the same sentence.

He needs to totally overhaul his work ethic or he is going to simply fade away. His body type doesn't bode well either.

I defend Dunn from the morons that criticize him at every game, but I'm extremely worried about the end of this season and his general decline.

I agree, although did you ever notice how many fifth starters the Reds have? Milton is the fifth starter. EZ was the fifth starter and will shoot for that spot again. People say Belisle next year should be the fifth starter. And Lohse is the fifth starter.

Maybe we'll get some lucky weather patterns next year. Sun, sun, rain, rain, sun.

Nearly everybody's fifth starter is the guy with issues, bouncing from bullpen to starting, or coming off injuries, or a project of some kind. Who has the best fifth starter in baseball? It's not a glamorous job.

True. The Reds problem is they have several fifth starters, some of whom are in the #3 and #4 slots.
