Re: Groundhog Day. I can't. Seem. To wake up from this bad dream.
I dunno. We're not going to make the playoffs again, true. But we can't really say that the last six months have been the Same Old Thing. The destination -- missing the postseason -- is the same. But the journey was a heck of a lot more interesting than it's been for awhile.
For me, in the end, it's still about entertainment. They don't owe me a winning team, although I want to win; they aren't obligated to run the team the way I would, although I happily play virtual GM. All I truly want -- the core difference between the times when I listen to the games and read RedsZone faithfully, and the times I don't -- is that they be interesting. And this year, the Reds have certainly been that.
Not all who wander are lost
