    That '94 team was something else, too bad greed wiped out what could have been a championship season for them.

    You make a good point, and I've seen this before about the Expos/Nationals, but you could say that about a lot of teams. Maybe not to that degree, but with free agency, it is often times a revolving door. There is rarely player loyalty, but just team loyalty anymore from a fan to team perspective.

    Our Reds were pretty good also in 1994. We were in first place when the strike (owners lockout?) started to end the season.

    Players striking/owners lockout could have cost us two World Series titles. We had the OVERALL best record in baseball in the 1981 SPLIT SEASON.

    Watched the 2012 Clincher on FOX.
    *Bat Votto SECOND, please?*
