A few updates on the playoff races.

The thing I don't get if you are going to play Stubbs why is he continuing to bat him 2nd.

Because the other alternative is Valdez. Stubbs is probably getting the start tonight as a "thank you" for his catch ending the Marlins game.

I don't usually apologize for Stubbs, but it looked to me like he called out on ball four.

As for Phillips, I don't know who called for that steal of third, but it was ridiculous.

Didi Gregorius is the kids name that has played good at SS for us.

Why not start him again?

I would be open to Gregorius being the back up infielder during the playoffs....he has hit the ball hard most at bats..let's see what he can do this month. Let him have a chance. Especially this series before Cozart comes back.

However we all know he has no chance of making the post season roster...no chance. Valdez is written in stone.

Valdez is a pro who has played in pennant races and big games. He can't hit, but he's had a few big hits this year. Reds aren't going to replace him with a guy who played at AA and AAA this year.

To read the game thread, you'd think the rest of the club is clobbering the ball and the only problem is Wilson Valdez.

If we have a better record than the Giants, why will they have home field advantage?This year it's 2 games at the lower seeded teams park and then 3 games at the higher seed instead of the normal 2-2-1 format.

Didi Gregorius is the kids name that has played good at SS for us.

Why not start him again?

I would be open to Gregorius being the back up infielder during the playoffs....he has hit the ball hard most at bats..let's see what he can do this month. Let him have a chance. Especially this series before Cozart comes back.

However we all know he has no chance of making the post season roster...no chance. Valdez is written in stone.

I have heard a lot of talk about Gregorious or Cingrani being on the postseason roster. In fact Hal McCoy had it in his article today.

Unless I am completely wrong I thought you had to be on the 25 man roster on August 31st to be eligible.

The stupid playoff schedule baseball is going with this one year where the 1 and 2 seeds will start with 2 road games and then have 3 home games in the first round.

So the team with the best record could be down 0-2....that crazy...

God forbid we do a 2-2-1 like they have done it for years.

Heck, I would consider Arroyo and Bailey. Arroyo would love pitching in that big ball park

He pitched well in that game in 2010, but he didn't start it. Not to insinuate he wouldn't have pitched well if he did, but I think there is a notable difference in starting a game and coming in when your team is already behind.

That being said, I'd feel comfortable giving Homer the ball in the postseason this year. Especially on the road.

It's pretty cool to be in a position where we don't really care in the Cards win or not...A lot of teams are in a dog fight every night...

With that being said, it is hard to turn "on" that intensity when you need it. Maybe there is an advantage of playing meaningful games in late September..I hope we can turn in "on" in October. I got faith!

Don't blame anyone for leaving Bailey in there. Pitching a great game, one man on, have to leave him in.
