Reds Sept 16th-27th . . . Last 10 games - The race to the playoffs or elimination
#21
Right now the Reds are ahead of the Cardinals and would be in the playoffs.

If they fall behind the Cards in the Central they could still make the playoffs as a wild card if they are better than all but one of the teams that do not finish 1st or 2nd in their division. Right now that looks like the Giants, Phillie, and Brewers. The Reds are ahead of the Brewers and Phillies so they would still make the playoffs as a third place team.

In the ESPN standings they also list a teams probability of making the playoffs. this is based on the difficulty of their remining schedule. The Phils and Giants must have easier schedules because ESPN gives both of them a better chance of making the playoffs but not by much.

Reds......54.7%
Cards.....57.5%
Phillies....63.3%

Yup, they take two against White Sox I'll start getting a little excited.

Mahle with a strong performance tonight.
5 2/3 4 hits 1 run 1 earned run 2 walks and 8 strikeouts bringing his ERA down to 3.97

Mahle, Gray, Castillo, Antone and possibly Lodolo have me excited about the future of the starting staff.

6-1 Reds after 6 and a half innings. Crochet of the White Sox came in throwing 101 MPH in his MLB debut.

Cardinals win game one, trailing by 1 in game two.
Marlins beating the Nationals 6-2 in the 4th.
Atlanta burying the Mets 13-1.
Brewers just took a 6-4 lead over the Royals.
The Phillies won game one but the Blue Jays just took a 6-5 lead in game two.

We really shut down their offense last night. The White Sox have an incredible record vs Pittsburgh, KC, and Detroit...something like 23-4 and a losing record vs everyone else. That was surprising to see. How much they have beat up on the have nots.

Throwing that hard and in the strike zone, with a nasty curve to boot.  Chris Welch said it was the wickedest debut he ever saw.

They are.  I do still wanna see them put up runs if they aren't hitting homers.  That is still the one missing piece.

Apparently Cincinnati might not be one of the 'Have Nots'. Let that sink in a bit.

Big game tonight for Bauer as he faces off against Keuchel.

Yep.  There might be just enough mediocrity in the NL for the Reds to have a shot.

Someone might get tossed tonight. This home plate ump seems to have an expanded strike zone. Only in the first and already some questionable calls.

The Reds, despite all their "issues" could still end up being a dangerous team.

You don't have to watch many baseball games to see how bad the umpires are behind the plate.  On the bases, they are much better.  But this horse shit of each umpire having a different strike zone is ridiculous.  I have seen back to back pitches thrown in the exact same spot and one is called a ball and the other a strike.  They really do suck.

9-20 before Sundays games. With the season to end 9-28. Giants and Brewers have 26 losses. Reds have 27. It is that tight...Cardinals have 24 losses catching them would take a miracle. Beating out the Brewers and Giants for the 8th play-off spot is most possible way.

GO REDS....Suarez is back from wife having a baby, The Reds need their best power hitter this last week of short season. Reds may have to go to 4 starting pitchers or even 3 starting pitchers as if in Play-Offs. Time to lose the 5th starter.

#8 will have the misfortune of playing #1 Dodgers all games in LA. The Reds do have Bauer and Castillo to give Reds a chance. They will have to become #8 first, so a HARD last week ahead. For the Reds, each game on out is a must win Play-Off Game.
