Da Reds thread

.5 game back and once again most of the team is on the IL this team is bad when it comes to injuries.
Let's give a cheer for Spencer Steer.

He hits well, has some speed, and can play 1B, 2B, 3B and OF. A very valuable player.

Definitely one of my favorite new Reds. The return we got for all those vets we sent out are paying off. I just wonder where everyone will play in the future its going to be a crowded infield especially if we keep India.

WC spot again.

Somehow, like it has been all season, just keep winning.

#24 in team ERA, #11 in Runs Scored, #20 in FP. Somehow that translates into a borderline WC spot.


With the easier schedule to finish those stats could improve. But it has been the former weakness that has been the strength with the pen that has pulled it off so far. The young guys take time about lifting the team at the plate. If a couple can get hot down the stretch with just OK pitching, they could get in. Anything can happen after that.

Everybody that watches and knows baseball sees what the team has for the future. Good time to be a Reds fan, finally.
