At about 4:13 EST the Cards defeated the Brewers 3-2 to put an end to the REDS postseason hopes. It was fun while it lasted. Oh what could've been. Let's win out and have a winning record. GO REDS!

The missed opportunities this season are gut wrenching. I watched more rip-your-heart out losses this year than any time in recent memory. Here's to a positive change in 2007. For those close losses to stop, I think we all know what the main change needs to be, no?

I, for one, am thrilled this was interesting until the last day of September. I'm usd to loosing interest in early June. I know a big part of what made this close was Cardinal mediocrity, but it was still fun.

I was ticked because it was an 0-2 count, and the first "ball" was so much bull. It was low but obviously in the strikezone, the only reason it was called a ball is because the catcher was set up no the outside and had to come back in for it. Oh well, whatever, Brewers got screwed and we wouldn't have made the playoffs anyway probably.

Yes, that should have been a strike. A good umpire should not have to rely on where the catcher is positioned.

I'd like to thank Bob Castellini for changing the attitude of the REDS, Wayne Krivsky for trying all year to help improve the team, not every move worked as planned but at least you didn't just sit on your hands and 'wait for the five plan to fail' like past GM's. And to ALL the players who wore the Cincinnati Reds uniform the year, you gave us many thrills this year with stirring comebacks and a never give up attitude for the most part. Now finish the year strong with a winning record a second place finish and something to look forward to in 2007.

Of course. The solution to all the Reds' problems is to get rid of Adam Dunn. If he's gone, the offense will score 5 more runs per game, the starting pitchers will all win 20 games, and the bullpen will shut down every opponent in the late innings. The question won't be whether or not they make the playoffs, but whether or not their World Series opponent manages to score a run in the four games.

Funny, I was thinking Jerry Narron.

Ah, but I'd rather sit through gut wrenching losses than be saying to myself "oh well, just another loss"

Well, I was thinking Narron, but ok. :)

I love the direction the team is taking...I am as excited right now about Reds baseball as I was on the day they named the new ownership group.

I look forward to what does and doesn't happen this off season...When it's all said and done the team jumped lightyears into the future thanks to Special K and Mr. C.

Am I am homer?

Damn right I am.
