I thank God that the Reds are not the Cardinals. I would rather lose with dignity than win in disgrace. I am proud that the Reds are not the Cardinals, that they are a far superior, far classier team and organization that plays by the rules.
If the Reds finished 9 games back in second place, earned the second wild card in the first year it existed, got an umpire-aided win in the WC game, got to open at home against the team with the best record in baseball and got every break imaginable in order to win the series, I'd be happy as a Reds fan.
But man would something always bug me knowing that it was a cheesy way to do it and few fans of other teams respected it.
