HometownHero is pretty darn funny...I'll give him that. Not really sure what his point is about the Cardinals being lucky but I suspect it makes him feel better if it allows him to think of the Reds as unlucky. All I know is that if making it to the NLCS 7 out of the last 12 years and winning 2 WS titles during that span makes them lucky then I can live with that. It sure as hell beats the alternative.

This is coming from a Cards fan who actually likes the Reds and always has. I was really rooting for a matchup with them in the NLCS.

I'll leave now before I get accused of trolling...HometownHero-I hope u get over the loss quickly and can move on. You seem like you know your baseball but the postseason is way more than stats. Once you get there, you know as well as I do that you can pretty much throw out the regular season records and it comes down to heart and experience more often than not.

Peace out Reds fans...your time is coming.
