Re: This is not our year.
What if its not our year? Here's what we're looking at next year:
A team full of gamers that had a World Series dream ripped from it. That team?
And a cast of many more
With a GM that knows how to win and an owner that wants it.
Ladies and gentlemen, this team is going to be good for a long time. And isn't that what we want in Cincinnati, what we haven't had for years? World Series don't come often. Teams that have a shot at them should be our goal as fans. It's a six-month season, and we've been treated to six of the best months in over a decade. With a really good chance at six more next year and for years to come.
Folks, Reds baseball is back. Fourteen other teams are going to see CIN on the schedule and spend days figuring out how in the world they're going to beat those guys. How do you pitch to Joey Votto or get a single damn ball past the infield?
The biggest obstacle the team will face is its own fans. We've seen it in interviews, and we've seen it in the attendance numbers. It's time to embrace the winning and stop griping about how seasons end or what lineup gets run out each day. This very well may not be our playoffs, but this has been our year. It's been unbelievably fun.
