So many good things happened during those 162 days of baseball.

Opening Day...

Joey Votto's grandslam on mothers day when were down by 3 or 4 against the Nats........


That pirates vs reds weekend where charlie sheen came down, and marty did the whole shave marty day for the poor kids with cancer.......

The 10 game winning streak

The Reds persevering without Votto in the lineup

The Arizona comeback game where we were down 6 runs

Homer Bailey's no hitter against the Pirates

Clinch Day against the Dodgers

So many nice memories from 2012:beerme::beerme:

Which was your fave!

Choking away the playoff series against the Giants. 2-game lead. Three home games. See ya. That is unforgettable.

agreed -- but I'd tag on the wildly improbable idea that the SP didn't miss a start

What's memorable 162 games, or 5 games?

It sucks that it happened. But i'd take an entertaining season like the one we had, as opposed to a boring playoffs.

3 games. All losses. Out of the playoffs. Why would you ask for opinions and then try to question them? Makes no sense. You remember what you want and let everyone else do the same. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

Marty shaving his head.

Votto's AB against Lowe and his 3 HR game

The howl.

Losing Bray, Masset and Madsen and still having one of the best bullpens in baseball.

Yes the finish was disappointing but this was a great year and next year should be even better.

What's more memorable..the journey, or the destination?

Each person decides that for themselves. That is why they are called opinions. If you followed your line of thinking, even if the Reds had won the World Series, you would have to pick the regular season (journey) over the World Championship (destination).

I saw the boys 4 times and each one was memorable:

1. Saw the boys top CC in the big Ballyard in the South Bronx on 5/20. Huge HR from Ludstick. Can still hear Chappies fastball "kerpowing" all over the park.

2. Saw Bruce hit inside the Park HR at Shea, I mean Citi Field and a typical Bronson performance on 6/15.

3. Saw Homer's masterpiece on 9/28.

4. Saw McCutchen hit a 800 foot walk off before a sold out crowd on 9/29. 2 runs in two games off right handed pitchers. Paging Mr. Choo. (Will concede Stubbs made some spectacular catches in this game).

All in all a fun summer. Lets start 2013 tomorrow.

Seeing Jay Bruce's walk-off homerun against the Mets

It's the first walk-off homerun that I've seen in person and Jay is my favorite player so that made it even better. It was also the same night my grandma died so it was bittersweet, to say the least

Seeing Scott Rolen flail away on a hanging slider in the sun deck of Game 5.

Longest drive home of my life

For the season... I'll always remember how guys stepped up when Joey went down

For a moment... The Chapman tumble was awesome. I was so jacked about how we were playing and to see his excitement was great.

Agree I think this was not only the most exciting moment but also the most important moment, it really defined what our season was about.

The optomist in me says: Todd Frazier's little run at ROY. Best Bullpen, best record, and close to the best starting rotation. Also, Votto's multi-HR game that closed out with a grand slam.

The pessimist in me says: Drew Stubbs not showing up to the party, again. A boat load of injuries, and Dusty Baker's in-game managment decisions.


The pessimist in me wins, though, with this: Our post season showing was horrendous despite excellent pitching in most of the games. :thumbdown:

There is a lot to be optimistic about for 2013. I'm looking forward to my first Opening Day, after spending Opening Day 2012 in Key West for a wedding I decided it was time to take the day off work and get tickets for 2013.

As much as would LOVE be all "Rainbows and Unicorns" about 2012, that gag job to end the season still stings too much to say anything else.

Spending time in Key West is a good trade though!

I can't complain about that at all! I actually watched the game in a bar on Duval St. and ran into a local who was born in Dayton and was a big Reds fan. Shot the breeze with him and his wife for most of the game. Had a great time!:beerme:

Other than the playoffs it was Todd and Ludwick taking off and leading the offense after Joey got hurt.

Probably having an opening day party at my house. Even non baseball fans had a great time!

PLUS......the ones everyone mentioned. I also have to add that Phillips and Cueto not being named to the All-Star team was bad memory. Attending game 5 of the NLDS was a great memory even though we lost.

Sadly, my standout memory was listening to game 5 while I was at work. I was screaming in my head for Dusty to pull Latos. He did not...
