    That's what I keep telling my coworkers. I'd feel a lot better about being 6.5 games out if we were in 2nd.

    If Reds go 16-4 in their next 20, that'll take them from 6 games under .500 to 6 games over .500. The Brewers are currently at 5 games over, and the Cubs and Cards are both at 7. So, even if the Reds play .800 ball, and everybody else is just .500...it still wouldn't necessarily jump them into first place in the division.

    As for the wildcard, you have either the Cubs/Cards at 7, the Nationals at 6, the Phillies & Brewers at 5, and the Giants at 2 games over. Heck, the Diamondbacks (-1) and Mets (-3) are even ahead of the Reds. That's a lot of teams you're hoping goes .500 while you're on your tear.

    Would 16-4 put you squarely in the mix? Absolutely. Is it guaranteed to be enough to vault you into first in either the division or the wildcard? No.

    I heard on the radio yesterday, that the Reds offense in most offensive categories has been second best in baseball since the All Star break.

    There is no extending Bauer for anyone. He has said he only will sign 1 year contracts to highest bidder for his career. So the Reds can still get him, but it will be for that 1 year 20-30 million range depending on how he does next season

    And if things are not better next year, you trade him at deadline for more pieces.

    I find it very hard to believe that his agent will let him be that stupid.
