    FCB it is not meaningless they made the critical determination that ervin and jankowski and van meter are not snider, mays or mantle , so this discerning assessment will bode well for the 2047 [playoff push

    This really is kind of mind blowing. How in the world can you manage to NOT be in the race THIS September? It is probably the most impressive organizational accomplishment in at least 7 years.

    The Reds are 2 games back of a playoff spot right now. They are in the race, as ugly, stupid, painful, heart breaking, soul crushing, and dumb as all of this 2020 season for Cincinnati has actually been.

    Ok, but it’s not 2 games back of a single team. The Giants, Marlins, Mets and Brewers are all ahead for the last WC.

    To gain two games on that spot, Reds must outplay (in W-L) all four teams by a sufficient margin, including maybe winning tiebreakers.

    But good news, as of today Reds would get the 8th pick in the 2021 draft.

    I saw the title of this thread and thought Jim Mora must be the author.

    The Reds sniffing the playoffs is the best possible argument for those opposed to playoff expansion.

    The reds intentionally try to be uncompetitive

    You can’t be this incompetent for so long without doing it on purpose.

    Even the worst teams luck into success every now and again.

    But not the reds. They’re the biggest loser baseball franchise of the last 30 years.

    So you're saying there's a chance?

    There are 5 teams ahead of us. I think to have a chance we need to go 13-6 over these last 19 games. We’ve got 7 left with Milwaukee and 4 with the pirates. Have to go 6-1 in those.

    honestly....stack more than 2 wins up....or even something like 4 our of 5 and those odds likely change drastically. I am not saying we will win 4 out of 5....but it is still right there.

    Don't get me wrong - I'd bet a lot of money on the Reds not making the playoffs if someone had a gun to my head and was forcing me to place a bet of a lot of money on making or not making the playoffs.

    But the fact is - they are in the race. I just have no faith that they can win enough games to overcome things, especially with their remaining schedule.

    If not, we can discuss a pretty high 2021 draft pick in a new thread soon. Could be higher than last year.
