The Reds have really embraced this role as a potential spoiler. The club took 3 of 4 against the Cardinals this week. It probably won’t spoil the Cards post-season chances but at least the Reds played them tough in an attempt to spoil any efforts. The club has split with Milwaukee the first two games there and the club had a real shot at winning the series already had it not been for Friday’s late loss. A win today would be 2 of 3 from the Brewers and put them in a real tough spot. Of course we all know the Reds spoiled their own playoff aspirations with their poor play at various times throughout the season.
If you’re looking for things to cheer about and silver linings, the Reds need to go 10-3 starting today to finish the season .500. Perhaps salvaging a non-losing season at this point would be something we can all cheer about!
