    Every other team in MLB...

    Besides our Reds have managed to advance a round in the playoffs since the 1995 season.

    Meanwhile, Cincy is going into consecutive season number 20 without a post-season advancement.

    And the streak looks to continue for years to come

    Since 2010, only six MLB teams, other than the Reds, have made at least 3 post season appearances

    Blue Jays haven't made the postseason since 1993.

    Nationals/Expos haven't played in an LCS.

    Pirates haven't played in an LCS, but advanced by winning a Wild Card game.

    As getfoul pointed out, The Blue Jays haven't been to the postseason since 1993. Soooo, you're wrong.

    Or are we not counting Canada? Because that I could understand.

    5 WS championships in about 125 yrs. for the redlegs. Nine National League pennants and ten division titles. Sooo, 1 every 25ish yrs. WS titles, a NL pennant every 14ish' yrs., better than most, worse than about 5-6 teams. The "good yrs." don't come around very often looking at history and still have been better than the vast majority of teams. Not quite Haley's comet-like, but tough odds for over a century. Still beats rooting for the Cubs I guess...

    The Reds are the only team in MLB to lose three playoff series in a row and be destined to never win another game again.
    Cincinnati Reds 2014 W-L Record: 76.6-85.4*

    Cincinnati Reds 2015 W-L Record: TBA

    Before this year The Royals hadn't even been to the playoffs since 1985, now they're the darlings of baseball. Funny game.


    Before the 83-78 2006 Cardinals won a World Series, they hadn't won a World Series since 1982. Imagine that, even the vaunted Cardinals who wrote the book on how to play the game managed to go almost a quarter century without winning a title.


    The Philadelphia Phillies, who were anointed as Gods among men in the latter half of the '00s have only won 2 World Series ever - the first in 1980 and then going 28 years before their second in 2008. Those same Phillies quickly grew old and are now a shell of their former self.


    It's almost as if baseball is a hard game and winning in the postseason is a crap shoot. Hmmmm.

    Well, statistics count for the regular season and at some level we all want to be Nate Silver. And you will win at least 1 out of 3 with a 30 million payroll so the playoffs are sort of like a shot of Blanton's after a bottle of Woodfords. Who cares? I love the Reds when they are winning and losing. Baseball is all about hope, the spring and eternal things not advancing in the playoffs. Although I am not adverse to the thought.
