The Reds are tied for first and are 8-2 in their last 10. If they don't dump all of their good players this year, they may have a shot at the playoffs. If their pitching staff holds up and they don't get too many injuries they could win 90+ games.

Opps, I thought this was a Manchester United thread...carry on Cincy fans.

I've been a fan since they started winning so I don't want to hear any crap.  When Caple was there I rooted for a better team, but THEN THEY CAME BACK!!!  You can't keep us down. The scoreboard is sweet.  D is for Duke and K is for winner.  Duke is a solid med school.  I saw Langdon helping a handicapped child. John Wayne has DA BEST nickname.  Go Duke.  I just bought a Chevy with my Amex.  DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUKE!!!

If the starters can hold up they'll keep this run going - they may need to go out and get another starter by the deadline if they're still in it. Tough call by management as they're in a tough division and selling out for a run this year could hurt them down the road. When is Claussen coming up? he could be the extra boost needed

The reality is that despite 20 saves, he's already blown 4 opportunities - not a good save % at all. What's remarkable is that he already has 24 chances in only 44 games.

Been saying this all along.As far as getting another pitcher, the Reds are talking with both Seattle (Meche/Garcia) and also Colorado (Johnson) about trading for one of the mentioned pitchers.I made the 8 hour trip this weekend to watch Fri-Sun games.

He just about blew it again Saturday. 3 straight hits to lead off the 9th, and it took Castro's diving catch to save the game. I don't feel comfortable going into the 9th with Graves unless the Reds have a 3 run or more lead. He's already given up like 7 HRs in 26 innings (too lazy to look it up).

Anyone watch Saturday night's game? Watching 40 year old Larkin score from first on Casey's double was invigorating.

:thumbup: Watched Larkin's triple last night with a bunch of idiot Houston homers. Hardest slide at 2nd/3rd I've seen in a long time.

And yes, he dud beat the tag.

As for Graves, he is a pretty scary closer, but I've seen scarier. Don't they have somebody to spell him in the role? 25 attempts in less than 50 game is going to wear him out I'd think.

Come on man.... no nasty boys references without including Norm Charlton. Who doesn't still have the shirt with all three staring you down. On a more important note, schedule only gets easier from here for the Reds. 21 of the next 35 games against montreal, cleveland, mets, and pirates.

Looking it over made me remember the "Nasty Boys" duo of Dibble and Randy Myers. Nice.

It wasn't a duo. It was Dibble, Myers, and Norm Charlton.

I remember loving the Reds back in the day of Hal Morris, Paul O'Neil, Eric Davis, Barry Larkin and Chris Sabo, not to mention Tom Browning, and who can forget Rob Dibble? GB sweeping the A's in 1990. :thumbup:

Does anyone remember Glenn Brags snapping a bat over his shoulder? Might have been in the NLCS, but he swung and missed and when the bat hit his shoulder it snapped in two. Very cool...well except for the missing part.Oh yeah, and Paul O'Neill nailing a runner at third from RF in the NLCS.Dibble, Charlton, and Myers were about the goofiest trio out there. Pro sports needs more characters like that.

This team is dialed in like no other team in the history of this sport.
