That's exactly why the Reds are only 4 games out. I believe the Reds will never see 1st place in the Central again this season. It's almost like playing the A's all over again!

If so, you owe me $10, since the bet was that they'd be in fourth.

Don't look now, but Houston could put together a nice little run before the break. Carlos Beltran is on fire. 2 more bombs today, all 4 Houston RBIs. Score is now 4-4.

Looks like the bet comes down to Sunday's Reds-Brewers titanic struggle to see who wins this bet.

Tommygunz:eddie_and_christel@charter.net for my paypal :DAt worst, 3rd in the central, possibly 2nd in the NL Central and w/i 2 games for the Wild Card. Great comeback win today with Casey, Jr, and Kearns all out. Along with Freel.Is this team poised for the World Series? Hardly, but this team has more heart and drive than anyother team out there. :thumbup: Regardless of how they finish, this has been a fun team to watch. As a baseball fan, that's what I want. Guys that will not quit and give it their all, day-in and -day out. What the front office does or doesn't do to help the team isn't their fault/concern. They give it their all, and I'm having fun watching them play!!! :thumbup: -fe

tgunz makes a gutsy call and barely misses.

The Reds are doing it with smoke and mirrors. Their run differential is -41. No other team over .500 has anywhere near such a negative differential.

The Phils have 29 come from behind wins this year - tops in the NL - this would lead me to believe they have as much if not more heart then the Reds - and an actual chance at making the postseason. you want heart? check out the boxscore from friday's game against the Braves.

IIRC, we have 5 on the All-Star break, and 5 on the end of the season. Care if I wait until both are finished before either sending you 10 or calling it even?I hate transaction costs...

But many were picking the Phils to win the NL East, and while currently in first, I don't think a 46-41 record heading into the All Star Break is in line with pre-season expectations. I believe Mount Bowa will ultimately wear out his welcome there.I'm not exactly sure how you gauge heart, but teams that have outperformed expectations to this point (MLB payroll rank in parenthesis) include Texas (18), Detroit (23), Cincy (24), Tampa Bay (29), and Milwaukee (30).
