The last week of the regular season is upon us and Cincinnati still has a chance to take the NL Central. St. Louis currently is ahead two games.
Regardless if Cincinnati wins the division or not, they’re essentially a lock for postseason play. The Reds have a five game lead over the Nationals in the wildcard race.
If and when Cincinnati clinches a wildcard berth, don’t expect any celebration from Brandon Phillips.
Phillips on #Reds would celebrate clinching a wild card: Hell no! You celebrate clinching a one-game playoff and then lose, you look stupid.
