    What is this "doubleheader" you speak of?

    In 1964 - that was the topic of discussion - sorry I should have stated that.

    Awww redsmetz, I was just yanking your chain. I should have put a smiley on it.

    Many of the young 'uns around here haven't ever seen a regularly scheduled doubleheader.

    You mean they used to play 18 innings in one day, on purpose? And they didn't charge the fans extra? That can't be true.

    In 1994 I went to a Minor League Triple Header in Toledo. The night before they had a rain out and then they had a Saturday Twin-Bill - they started about 1pm and went all the way to about 10 or so.

    Cool stuff. And I was old enough and stupid enough to enjoy some adult beverages.

    I came into this world just nine days after the 1964 World Series ended. My memories are vague at best.

    Poor excuse.
    That reminds me of a comment that Winston Churchill once made. Churchill was born less than nine months after his parents were wed, leading to speculation that he had been conceived out-of-wedlock. Churchill stated that while he was present at the time of his conception, he had only a vague memory of the event.

    I remember the 1964 thing. It was terrible. The Reds' position was sort of like Houston's now. If Philly fell out, it was the Reds' to take. Then they got beaten by the Phils the last weekend while St.L won vs. the Mets.

    I also remember the Tsitouris selection. Much was written about that choice, then the guy was knocked out right away in a 10-0 game.

    It's now 42 years later, but somehow, if the Reds could sneak in, this would be revenge for that season a long time ago. Of course, it's a long shot, but there are obvious similarities.

    Tsitouris showed up that day with his car completely packed and ready to drive home after the game.If I'd been Sisler I would have greeted him with 5 knuckles and he'd been on his way home before the game started.
    Could you imagine him doing that and Billy Martin being the Reds manager.

    Re: 1964

    The Cardinals certainly seem to be pulling a '64 Phillies, but the NL that year had some real good teams in it.

    This NL Central might as well be the 1973 NL East. If people are looking for a "this would make up for that" scenario then rather than getting revenge for 1964, I'd suggest the opportunity would be to avenge the '73 Mets beating a vastly superior and more deserving Reds club. I'd say that's where the Reds' real karma rebound lies.

    As good as Arroyo and Harang have been, the Reds starters do not favorably compare to the 1973 Mets trio of Seaver, Matlack and Koosman, nor do the 2006 Reds have a McGraw in the bullpen. The Mets pitching totally shut down the Reds hitters in the 1973 NLCS, with the exception of Pete Rose.
