    Losing all four home games to the Metropolitans hurt bigtime, Dude. Losing 6 of their first 8 games in August against sub-.500 competition was the icing on the cake.

    Off season when management failed to make this team better and the Brewers and Cardinals did.

    The Brewers series before the break, when Cordero blew 2 saves.

    That damn fat began warming up in mid-April, got louder in May, was singing opera in June when the Reds couldn't win back to back games to save their lives, then she went over the top before the break with the Cardinals and Brewers series.

    The Mets series was her encore.

    Now she say "Thank you, I'll be here all year!"

    One word decribes this season...misery, and in football season Bengals fans are going to be ready for opening day next year...serves the damn Bengal fans right though, especially after the killer year the Reds had last year and all summer people in Cincy were only talking about was when the football season begins.

    I pretty much felt like they didn't have anything going all season.

    But in late July they got swept by the Mets, then followed it with a sweep of the Giants (which gave me hope), then lost 2 of 3 to Houston, and 2 of 3 to the Cubs, and that was pretty much the nails in the coffin for me. They are currently 6-8 in August.

    This team is lacking something big time.

    I think a managerial change would do wonders for next season. And if ownership and the GM REALLY BELIEVE that this team has enough talent to win. Then there is no excuse for bringing Dusty back. Seriously.

    It was the 4 game sweep at home against the Mets, dudes. I said it then and I shall reiterate it now. That killed the season.

    The end of our season started in Milwaukee and we were done after the 4 game series with the NYM.
