Re: The 2010 Reds were NOT a "special" team (which might be a good thing)
The one thing that confuses me about your argument; the 1999 Reds were World Series bound but 1999 was it?
They threw Ron Villone and Steve Parris in abundance. Pete Harnisch was a horse.
This team was much more equipped for a World Series run from the lineup to the bullpen to even the rotation.
2009 Attendance Record: 3-5
2010 Attendance Record: 2-9
2011 Attendance Record: 3-4
2012 Attendance Record: 3-4
2013 Attendance Record: 5-2
