The Cincinnati Reds are coming off of a 4-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the team, fans, and even mascots are feeling great. The sweep put the Reds 10 games over .500 for the first time since the 2013 season. That team would finish 92-70, but third in the National League Central and have to play in a wild card game. Cincinnati is currently in second place in the division, but outside of the playoffs as they trail the San Diego Padres by 2.5 games for that final spot.
Fangraphs updated playoff odds currently give the Reds a 36.
