Playoffs?

After watching the Reds lose tonight, it made me think if the reds are a playoff team. Its hard to tell because of the larger roster and all, but this game felt like a playoff game. This whole series as a mater of fact has felt like the playoffs. And every game just becomes more and more important everyday. This game tonight is exactly why Reds fans hate Dusty Baker, and he's not the one that deserves to blamed. Chris Heisey comes up in the bottom of the 15th and tries to bunt in Choo?!?! Like what was he thinking, epically with two outs and these are the things that Dusty get blamed for and has no reason. There were a couple of plays last night that left you scratching your head. Another thing that stuck out was the radar gun last night, and the reds have the hardest throwing arm in all of Major League Baseball without a doubt in Aroldis Chapman. However, looking over at St. Louis bullpen, they had at least 5 to 6 guys throwing 97-100 MPH. This is probably the hardest bullpen to get hits off in the later innings, and why I think St. Louis is set for the playoffs. I'm the biggest Reds fan out there and I love them to death, but there's something about this years team that's different from the teams in the past. I just don't feel like the swagger and confidence is there as much as last year. The bullpen isn't lights out as much as it use to be and offense hasn't been as powerful in the past. But what do I know, I'm hoping the redlegs get red hot in these next couple of weeks and make it to the playoffs, but we'll need a couple of guys to step up. God Bless Y'all
