And just like that, my optimism is gone again. I felt a Reds sweep of the Pirates might be enough to give them a sliver of hope at making the post-season but the collapse last night may be the final nail in the coffin. Obviously anything can happen, but it would take a small miracle at this point for the Reds to be playing into deep October.
In honesty, if you had to choose, would you bet on the Reds finishing 3rd in the division or last in the division? Oh this game of baseball messes with your emotions.
Discuss today’s early evening game in Pittsburgh here Reds fans. Hopefully pre-All-Star break Alfredo Simon returns to the mound. He was a little better than post-All-Star break Simon.
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
