QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Q: Do you think the Reds have enough of a run in them in September to win the National League Central? — MIKE, MIAMISBURG
A: They better. October will be too late. Want The McCoy Plan? It’s simple. Over the next two weeks they have to pass St. Louis and take over second place. Winning three of four against the Cardinals last week was a fabulous start. Then, when they are in second place, close to the first-place Pittsburgh Pirates with nine games left, they play the Pirates six times. They beat up on the Pirates and the title is theirs. Simple, right? Ready? Execute.
