This means my $480K vs. ANYBODY'S $68,571......my sister is a registered state of Ohio notary.........any offers?? Oh, and if NOBODY even considers taking me up on this offer....then you are all admitting.....IT IS TIME TO TEAR DOWN AND REBUILD !!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is kind of a silly offer. I don't want to see anyone on this board get completely wiped out financially if the Reds win the world series.
Also, to be fair, if the Reds win the division, they really only have a 1 in 8 shot to win the WS.
If they win the wildcard, it's roughly 1 in 16.
7 to 1 odds heavily favors you.
Today the Reds are only 3.5 out of first, and only 1.5 behind the Cardinals.
They would be a wildcard team if the season ended now.
To tear down this team would not be a smart move.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
