    Re: Who is the Reds biggest rival?

    The variety of answers that have been given in this thread provide the primary reason why realignment should never have happened. The Reds-Dodgers rivalry that I grew up living, breathing, eating, and sleeping for was killed in 1994. Ask any Reds or Dodgers fan from the early 70s until the early 90s who their team's rival was, and they'd say the other team. That was fun. That was baseball to me.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    I think it has to be the Cubs because Steve Stone in absolutely unbearably annoying -- then again so is Buck.

    I wish the Reds had a main rival. It makes baseball so much better. I'll put Michigan vs. Ohio State out there as an example. All year you wait and anticipate that game no matter how bad the other team is doing. When that game comes, the world stops and that game is all that matters. You don't have that with the Reds. I wish you did but you just don't. Maybe if we start winning something could eventually develop with the Cardinals.

    Since the Reds are more often battling for 4th, 5th, @ 6th in the NL Central I would say it comes from one of the teams that we are usually battling with Pittsburgh or Milwaukee. We have a past with Pittsburgh that is a good basis for a rivalry with the Pirates and the Brewers seem to have had our number over the past couple of years when we were in (or thought so anyway) the division race. My vote is Pittsburgh since they are the closest NL team and play in a more similar city.
    In actuality I don't feel as if there is a real good rivalry until two teams are good for an extended period of time and are battling each other for titles pretty often.
    FWIW my NL Central rankings from most liked to least liked team are 1. Cincy , 2. Pittsburgh, 3. St. Louis, 4. Milwaukee, 5. Houston, 6. Chicago

    I counted. There are 7 posts in this 55 post thread that mention football. Hardly "full of football talk."

    Gotta be the Pittsburgh Pirates. Both won championships in the 70's, have met 5 times in the LCS, both similar-sized Ohio river cities...

    Agree.

    Dodger should be. Shame they screwed up the schedule. Even tho the Dodgers biggest rival is the Giants.
