I'll be honest, I'm not too thrilled with the Reds chances of advancing in this year's playoffs. In fact, I think it would probably take divine intervention for them to make it past Pittsburg in the Wild Card game this coming Wednesday. I just haven't gotten the vibe from this team that I did the past few years. Perhaps I'm just being cynical, but probably not. So, I'm not betting on a Reds World Championship this year. I will say that I'm glad I picked up these Topps Chipz from sportlots last week. I was able to grab all four Reds chips for 50 cents a piece. I'm starting to appreciate the oddball stuff that Topps releases and perhaps I'll even go after the Joey Votto Big League mini that Topps released earlier this year.
