I don't really have a horse in this race, but my boss at work is from Detroit, and while he's a "Tigers' fan"...he's not really. Bandwagonner at it's finest. And he rather eagerly rubbed it in my face that the Reds were out and "his Tigers" were in. I had to point it out to him that he wasn't even aware that they made the playoffs until I told him. Anyway, he rubbed it in my face yet again by telling me he was flying to Detroit because he got tickets to the Series. He was so confident because he was going to game one with Verlander. Well, we saw how THAT turned out. LOL. I haven't heard from him since. :O)
94 and winning the division and the NLCS but falling in the WS to Toronto in 6
94 Reds / 86 Cards / 85 Pirates / 76 Cubs / 72 Brewers
Congrats to the Giants. On to the off-season and preparing for a 2013 Reds title.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Good one, Detroit.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
Great story, mixed feelings about the Reds being part of it, but very happy for the Giants, they definitely earned it.

Ok, this stings again.
Like the overwhelming number of Americans I didn't watch a single pitch. I would bet that both the Broncos/Saints game and CNN's hurricane coverage absolutely blew Game 4 out of the ratings water.
Didn't watch very much of it, but from what I saw, the Giants are a very sound team with terrific pitching.
They should sign their manager up for ten years. Very fine manager.
This, uh ... this kinda sucks.

Today is the saddest day of the year, the baseball season is finished.
