Nati Boys #78: It’s Finally Fall

img_3509-1

This week the Nati Boys discuss Drew Brees surpassing Peyton Manning as the NFL’s all-time leading passer and we give our thoughts on the ALCS and NLCS match ups.  It’s also Bengals-Steelers week, but we’re all feeling surprisingly optimistic about the Bengals’ chances.  We wrap up the show with our weekly football picks and, in honor of fall weather finally arriving, our fantasy draft this week is of our favorite Halloween- and fall-themed movies.

The Cincinnati Reds Reach the Ten Win Threshold For First Time Since 2017

All it took was the Mets batting out of order, killing a 2-out scoring opportunity and Adam Duvall hitting his first career walk-off home run in extra innings in front of a 1/3 capacity crowd at GABP.

Baby, we’re back.

They said it couldn’t be done, and to be honest, I was starting to believe them. Howevah, the Reds did what seemed impossible today as they hit the 10 win mark for the first time since 2017. Things weren’t looking great early on, but a managerial shakeup and shuffling of the lineup finally got the hometown team over the hump.

Not to mention, they also acquired Matt Harvey just moments before dinner on Tuesday night, so I’m thinking that adds about 100ish wins to the current Reds lineup. Before you know it, we could be talking playoff tickets and deciding which soul crushing way we prefer to be eliminated in the NLCS at the hands of the New York Reds-Mets.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though. Let’s focus on getting win #11 (shoutout Barry Larkin) before June. That might require Jesse Winker leading off on a regular basis though, so we might be looking at a July ETA on the coveted 11th tally in the win column.
