    I thought CNN owned Sports Illustrated. That seems like a bad move.

    I don't know what's going on... except that Bleacher Report is now what is linked to via CNN.

    Sorry, it's just hard not to make fun of bleacher report, it is a good idea to have a real discussion on the topic.

    When I showed Bleacher Report's list to John McEnroe he said: "You cannot be serious!"
    That was an amazingly poor list. Danny Jackson the best ever performance by a Reds pitcher, and Johnny Cueto and Jack Billingham in the top ten, but no mention of Dolph Luque or of Bucky Walters's 1939 season?
    I was a big George Foster fan, but Joe Morgan had at least 4 seasons that were better than Foster's 1977; the top two seasons in Reds history were probably Morgan's 1975 and 1976 MVP years.

    Why thank you
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Agreed. I get it that they didn't want to include one player more than once...but Morgan had the top season IMO. Several of those seasons should've been off the list. It's like the writer forgot anything before the 1960's.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Yeah--I was a bit sarcastic.

    Hey, I don't think that Hap owes any apologies to anyone because he started this thread. Ranking the best seasons in Reds history is an interesting topic. I just don't think Bleacher Report did a thoughtful job of doing so.

    Yeah, this was in my top 10 even before I read the article. And it didn't warrant an honorable mention? Wow!
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Linking a Bleacher Report story? Any junior high newspapers you can link to as well?

    Sorry, but 99 percent of Bleacher Report "articles" are written by teenaged fans who are unpaid. People linking to them and actually reading their garbage is exactly why sports journalism is going in the tank.
