    2020 Playoff Push

    The Padres may be the 4 seed, but they have the second highest win pct in the NL. I just dont see why we would want to have to go through BOTH of those teams when we don’t have to.

    Yea, I get the “if you want to be the best you have to beat the best arguement” but I don’t understand the appeal of having to go to the west coast from a travel standpoint against either team.

    Glad to make the short trip to Atlanta or Chicago...

    • If they lose, the Giants win, the Reds win, the Marlins win and they win Game 1 Monday: No. 7 seed

    • If they lose, the Giants win, the Reds lose, the Marlins lose, and they lose Game 1 but win Game 2 of the doubleheader: No. 8 seed

    • If they lose, the Giants win, the Reds lose, the Marlins win and they lose Game 1 but win Game 2: No. 8 seed

    • If they lose, the Giants win, the Reds win, the Marlins win and they lose Game 1 but win Game 2: No. 8 seed

    That's the one scenario where it would involve them getting into the playoffs. They only need it if they lose and the Giants win.

    Only thing still up in the air is the 8th seed. MIL will back their way in if SF can't score in the 9th here.

    Looks like the Reds are headed to Atlanta for a three game series.

    The Braves cheated big time to get Acuña and others, so I really hope the Reds sweep them.

    Looks like FCB’s prediction that the Reds would crap the bed and the Giants magnificent baseball acumen would propel them to the playoffs this weekend was the complete opposite of what actually happened.

    Go figure

    Somebody really needs to explain to him what a magic number of 2 with 3 to play means.

    Anyway, nice to take 2 of 3 against the #2 seed in the AL. Now do it to their NL counterpart.
