I disagree. Game 1 and Game 2 were a blast. Other than the slow start, the regular season was fun.
Game 3, yep the Reds lost (Broxton, Hannigan and Rolen share blame), but it was not agonizing..
Still the best season since 1995 for me. At least we won some playoff games.
If a fan has the attitude of "Win the world series or it's a failure" (not saying you feel that way OBM).. is baseball even fun? I mean, why torture oneself?
Seriously, it's a problem when the fans care more about winning than the players do. I know the players care, but they accepted that they did the best they can, and it just didn't work out. I doubt anyone loses sleep over this.
I don't get the scapegoating of Stubbs on this thread either.. If the playoffs hinge on a big offensive performance from the #8 hitter, the team is in trouble.
