    Your favorite highlight of 2012?

    For me, it was definately the 3 game series sweep of the Cardinals following the all star break. Big attendance numbers, ESPN in the house, etc. That series sent the Reds on their way to the top of the standings for the long haul.
    As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    So many highlights this year. My favorite: the stretch without Votto, and in particular, the 10 game winning streak.

    Mat Latos pointing at himself in game one of the NLDS asking to be put in. Kids got fire, and I dig that.

    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

    I liked Marty's shaved head, partly because I think it was a marker of a truly special season taking shape, but also because of the reason he did it, some great ball playing by the Reds.
    Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.

    Homer Bailey's no-hitter will stand out for me for 2012. We've been waiting for a moment like that from him and he finally came through in a big way.

    Also Todd Frazier's play. Stepping in where ever he was needed (3rd, 1st, LF, PH) and playing hard and well throughout the season.

    Chapman's somersault stands out for me. It was so weird and unexpected.

    Bailey's no-hitter, easily.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Votto's Mother's Day walk-off as a single moment, along with the night Marty shaved his head.

    Todd Frazier channeling his inner Chris Sabo was pretty sweet also.

    Watching Latos and Bailey improve throughout the year was cool as well. (Assist to Ryan Hanigan.)
