    Default Tell 'ya what... The Reds are for real!

    ... They just won tonight, stretching their lead to 6 games over the Cards.... Yea, I am a Pirates fan, but I also like the Reds... Here's some stats to consider as they go down the stretch...

    Before tonight's games....

    Reds remaining opponents 612-685 (.472)

    Cards remaining opponents 676-753 (.473)

    Reds home games 16
    Remaining opponents records 278-373 (.427)

    Reds away games 16
    Remaining opponents records 334-312 (.517)

    Cards home games 17
    Remaining opponents records 317-332 (.488)

    Cards away games 17
    Remaining opponents records 359-421 (.460)

    Reds have to play 3 games against one current first place team (San Diego) and 3 games against one current second place team (Cardinals).

    Cardinals have to play 11 games against three current first place teams (Cincinnati, Atlanta, San Diego).

    Reds 75-55 (.577)....5 game lead....32 games to go
    Cards 69-59 (.539).....34 games to go

    Reds need to go 15-17 to secure 90 wins.
    Reds need to go 7-25 to secure winning season.

    If Reds go 20-12 the rest of the way (95-67)
    Cards would have to go 26-8 (.764) to tie

    If Reds go 18-14 (at rate of current win %) the rest of the way (93-69)
    Cards would have to go 24-10 (.706) to tie

    If Reds go 16-16 (91-71)
    Cards would have to go 22-12 (.647) to tie

    If Reds go 14-18 (89-73)
    Cards would have to go 20-14 (.588) to tie

    .... I'm sorry folks, but I'm getting seriously hyped about this team... Nevertheless, I will be sporting a complete Bucco wardrobe when I go to the game on Sept 10th when the Buccos visit Cincy....

    There he is! Dusty was a great ball player too and a good guy. Before he became the manager for the giants I saw him give away dozen of baseballs to kids as a batting coach at candlestick park and he'd do it all the time. I am glad he is doing well.

    The environment around here is completely "electric" with them doing well... Dusty has already received an offer for a contract extension....

    They are right in the thick of the division race. In baseball it is hard to beat the excitement of a division race.

    Doing the math

    Reds 78-55......8 game lead....29 games to go
    Cards 69-62....31 games to go

    If Reds go 19-10 the rest of the way (97-65)
    Cards would have to go 28-3 (.903) to tie

    If Reds go 17-12 the rest of the way (95-67)
    Cards would have to go 26-5 (.834) to tie

    If Reds go 15-14 (93-69)
    Cards would have to go 24-7 (.774) to tie

    If Reds go 14-15 (92-70)
    Cards would have to go 23-8 (.719) to tie

    Last chance for the Cards this weekend. Do or die...they must sweep to get back into the divisional race, imo. 2 out of 3 isn't good enough...so that'll be too much pressure for them and they will not getter done, imo. The Reds take 2 or even 3 and stick a fork in the CArds, they will have to turn their attention to the WC chase.
