    Well, There It Is...

    Not saying tonight's game really "means" anything, but if a Reds fan went into a coma sometime in October of 1999 and woke up tonight and asked me what it's been like following the Reds since then.....I would simply put in the tape of tonight's game and say "here, watch this."

    I've been waiting all year for one of those games that makes me want to bash my head against a wall, mildly surprised they waited until July 3rd to do it

    I don't know that game against the Cardinals that they went from up 9-3 in the ninth to lose 10-9 might be the worst loss I have seen. this was bad no doubt but that took more then one big hit to get

    It feels better than this.

    This loss will be the beginning of a tailspin, IMO.

    I feel so bad for Homer Bailey. The guy pitched the game of his life and the manager/defense/offense/bullpen blows it for him. Huge loss.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    It stinks because you measure the talent on the Reds and compare it to the talent on the Cards and its not like they are better. Hell aside from Pujols I don't think there is much I'd rather have theirs than ours.

    Yet the sum of their parts is greater than that of the Reds somehow.

    It makes no sense.

    No sense.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    No, that one was a bit worse than this one, no doubt...and the Mother's Day Massacre, also at the hands of the Cardinals was worse than that. And the Edmonds robbery of Larue's HR (the one where George Grande wet his pants) was pretty bad and the one....ah forget it........

    Easy: They know how to win. Reds know how to lose.

    I know some people get annoyed with this "mystical" stuff, but I think the difference you see is the difference between a winning organization and a losing organization. Not really sure how to quantify it, but it's there.

    The Reds pen has been lights out for three months. They cracked tonight after pretty much impeccable pitching all year. A fine defense couldn't do anything either. It was bound to happen.

    Only one way to change that, win.

    I'll give the boys credit though. They choked the big one, but they went down fighting all the way until Phillips tried to hit the arena across the street with that last swing.

    But even with the bad relief pitching, tonight could/should have still been a W in the 10th if only for some better defense. Have to think that last inning would have been played different if Reds just needed 1 run and not 4

    Tough loss, but by no means a killer. It's not like Tyler Greene hit that slam. The pen is good, but I don't care what the numbers say they are not the best in the league. I am glad to see Edwin back. This makes tomorrow pretty big.

    Big loss for the Reds, huge win for the Reds with a Bailey game like that.

    You are far from the only one that feels/has felt this way, but this might be the fourth, fifth or sixth time you've echoed that sentiment this year. Very rarely does one gut-wrenching loss truly cause a tailspin. Certainly if one could, this is the kind that would qualify. That said... if this were against any of the other 28 teams in Major League Baseball that did not have a super human playing first base for them, the Reds win this game.

    Instead of everyone pointing fingers and placing blame, let's just give credit to the other guy. Albert Pujols is simply not a normal baseball player. He does things that defy logic, and thereby, you can't treat managerial decisions like any other player. Quite honestly, there was no right thing to do with him at the plate. Anyone that pitches to him is subject to what we witnessed. Intentionally walking him is actually my preference for him in that situation, but I will never fault any manager that does not want to purposely allow a run to score.
