Re: Is it sinking in for anyone else RIGHT NOW too?
Yeah, it set in for me as soon as they announced Mike Leake as the starter for Game 4.
It's depressing, because it feels like the Reds are never going to take the next step. I feel like this was the best shot at winning it all this team will have for a while. They had incredible health in the rotation, they had some historically bad teams at the bottom of their division to beat up on, and their number 1 competitor (St. Louis) lost their 1 starter (Chris Carpenter).
1990 gets further and further in the rear view mirror every year.
