I'm quite surprised by your response.
I watch pretty much every Reds game until the bitter end.
And usually it's the bitter end most years.
Why waste my time with a team that doesn't seem to care? If there is anything in sports that just annoys me and turns me off is when I see a team going through the motions and not seeming to care. I have better things to do with my time esp. since school is starting up again.
I'm not trying to find pity. All I'm saying is that its inexcusable. That statement isn't to incite pity on my part. From Cardinals fans point of view, making the playoffs once in five years and not having a playoff win since 2006 is pathetic and unacceptable. Not trying to throw a pity party, it is just different expectations for Cards fans.2 years?
You are complaining about a 2 year hiatus?
On a Reds board?
I think you need to find a Yankee audience to find some pity for you
Lots of 'splanin' needed for sons of both parties.
It is two years straight though, the 2nd place Cardinals get in a spat with the team ahead of them...
Go look at Cardinals attendance in the years proceeding Mark McGuire... Then look at the attendance during the HR chase. Immediately following that was Pujols.
Yeah, you've had great attendance #'s recently, but before the super-juicer they were just sub-par... let's see how well the "best fans in the history of baseball" represent themselves after Pujols leaves....

This is just my humble opinion but I feel a need to express it.
I honestly can't understand what seems to be hatred and disrespect directed at Albert Pujols in this thread.
I admit I've always hated the Dodgers. Hated them in the 1960's but still respected Walter Alston, Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale.
I hated the Dodgers in the 1970's but still respected the way Steve Garvey and Davey Lopes played the game.
I've often found myself rooting against the Cardinals the last few years but I still must be honest with myself and give credit where credit is due.
I respect Albert Pujols and honestly believe he is one of the best hitters I've ever seen.
Joey Votto doesn't stand and watch home runs?
Say what you will about Morgan's idiocy. And there is a lot to say. But at least he was straight with reporters about what happened from the beginning. He didn't take two homer journalists aside later to "clarify" when it became apparent he was lying.
Man I despise Carpenter. Is there a bigger tool in the game?
I have a love-hate relationship with Albert Pujols. Mostly hate.
