If Cueto didn't get hurt they win game one, and game two would been the game. JC then works game 5 if needed and Reds won 11 of his 14 home starts. Latos then works game 3 and Homer in game 4 rather than Leake.
Its a Reds board we can do what we want and you have to like it leave. They why I can sit here and keep saying the Cards are lucky and you guys keep coming here like a moth to a flame.
Rooting for the Cards, because my hatred of division rivals goes back ahellofalot futher. And NO, losing JC didNOT cost the Reds this past series. FAILURE to get more than 1 freaking run, when your pitcher is dealing a No-hitter thru 6 and 2/3, and only gives up one thru 7, is what cost his team their shot at your "beloved' Cards...We all know you're a closet Cardinal fan........They are all you ever talk about.........Come on out,,,,,it's OK,,,,,,,We understand. Also, Dusty/Walt could have just as easily pitched Latos in game 4, and Arroyo game 5, like most wanted.
I wish you wouldn't be a Reds fan because you are Cards fan dumb if you think losing JC didn't play into losing the series. He would started game 5 and held teams to a .656 OPS at GABP this year. You have everyone on normal rest rather than just Bronson pitching the game they expected to work.
Latos worked on the 2nd then came back on short rest to work game 1, to go in game 4 he would need to do it again all after tossing his career high in innings which would been dumb as hell. Then you would be going with Branson on short rest in a park he was shaky at in a critical game vs the other teams ace, also a retarded move.
Guys, play nice.
I don't think the injury helped, but neither did Joey not being 100%, Brandon having the calf soreness, Luddy still being off from the groin pull, and the late season batting slump.... I hate it, but it just wasn't our year despite how good it all looked early on. The team really has nothing to be ashamed of. Second winningest team, a no hitter, breakout of a couple of the young players, and some sure Gold Gloves.
Provided there isn't a repeat of 2011, 2013 could be fun.
New York Yankees..the only team that really deserves our contempt.

I dont believe what I just saw. Raul Ibanez is the greatest baseball player ever.

Great YOUTUBE videos.
I was wondering if anyone was going to be here to actually talk about the game on tonight. And man, what a show. Just when I was preparing to flip it over to another channel.
For those that don't know, the Tigers were up 4-0 in bottom of the ninth, the Yankees tied it 4-4. It's now in extra innings.
