Stranger things have happened, but having the Reds catch the Cardinals at this point would take a small miracle. The Reds enter play today 3 games back with 4 games remaining on the schedule. It is looking more and more likely that last night’s loss may not even matter in the scheme of winning the division as the Cardinals just keep winning anyway. Nonetheless, the location of the wild card game is on the line in the final 4 games and many of us agree that having that game in GABP will give the Reds a little advantage next Tuesday.
Dusty Baker has also agreed with the masses that Greg Reynlods does not need to be starting today and has chosen Mat Latos to start. This puts Latos in position to start Tuesday’s Wild Card game if need be. He needs to look sharp today to help ease any of the questions over his health and ability to win that 1-game playoff.
It is the final business day special of the season. So ignore work, tell your boss to shove it, and watch the Reds march towards the post-season. Discuss the game here Reds fans! Go Reds!
