Thought I would bump this to see how my Christmas list for last year fared...
12 - hits per game (sometimes)
11 - series sweeps(not quite)
10 - game lead by late September (not even close)
9 - defensive players (not really)
8 - solid hitters (I believe so)
7 - inning pitchers (two of them HARANG and ARROYO)
6 - World Series Rings (1919, 1940, 1975, 1976, 1990 & 2006) (NOT!!!)
5 - MORE YEARS FOR DUNN!!! (only 2)
4 - stolen bases (per game) (getting there)
3 - outs an inning (for defense) (better as the year progressed)
2 - more starting pitchers (should have asked for two more QUALITY starting pitchers)
1 - VERY HEAL-THY GRI-FFEY!!! (oh well...)
If I would have just received HALF of this list, I believe the REDS would be playing in the NLCS (IMO).
I will try to be better this year, so Santa will give me what I want...although I am afraid my fate is already sealed
