I guess two words from yesterday’s blog made my point, and winning will keep the Reds in the NL Central race. Now if my math is right, the Reds today could have been 1.5 back from first place if they had won on Friday, now they remain 2.5 back with 1st place tie of Pittsburgh and St. Louis. I think being 1.5 back today would be great, especially when heading to St. Louis where I don’t even know the last time they’ve won a series at Busch Stadium in the past 7 years.
