    The last season series of the year for the Reds.

    Always a depressing time of the year for me.

    Yep. The last game of the season is the worst day of the year for me. I wish I could fast forward time up to the beginning of spring training.

    That was a nice little interview with Bruce and Votto. They both seem like great guys. Judging from Votto's comments, it seems like his fathers death wasn't totally unexpected.

    Interview with Bruce and Votto on the pregame. I'm very impressed by Votto -- you can see the quiet confidence and the steadiness that can translate to leadership over the course of a long season. Thoughtful guy, too. Core player, without question.

    Votto enters the final weekend with an .857 OPS and Bruce is at .785. I'd love to see Votto keep his above .850 and Bruce have a huge weekend and push his over .800. I said before the season I would be happy if Votto could OPS north of .800 and Bruce above .750 - both have far exceeded my expectations.

    Loopers goes 1-2-3. It seems like the Reds offense always makes Looper look good.

    Already 2-0 Cardinals thanks to a bunch of cheap hits.

    Rosales turns another DP with another strong throw to first.
