Is it just me or does an afternoon game followed by a night game in San Fran feel too much like an off day?
This is a big stretch of 10 games here against 3 teams that could potentially be the Wild Card winner if the Reds can't hang on. And I don't think I need to remind anyone how much the Reds seem to struggle out in that strange state of California.
So, the question of the day is two-fold. The poll asks what you think the Reds will do on the trip out to the coast. And the second part of the question, which will have to be answered in the comments, is what is the minimum the Reds need to do for this trip to be satisfactory in your eyes.
For me, I think they have to at least split the 10-games, but even doing that could put them behind either the Padres or the Dodgers, depending on who is leading the division at that point. Unfortunately, the Cardinals spend the next 10 with one game against the Mets, then 3 each against the Cubs, Marlins, and Pirates, all at home. So, if the Reds want to stay in the division race, they may have to pull off at least a 7-3 trip. Hopefully that's not too much to ask.
