    Sam LeCure On Winning

    I love that Sam LeCure has a healthy respect for the history of this organization but seems to be like many of us who have been fans for nearly 40 years is tired of hearing about TBR...time for a new day, new heroes and another championship.



    MLB.com: Do you have a holiday wish for Reds fans? What kind of collective gift would you get them for the holidays?

    LeCure: I would say the holidays are about hope. You always want to give hope. I think everybody sees that the organization is moving in the right direction and signing the core guys to be here and have sustained success. I am so tired of, "Oh well, next year we'll get them." And while I totally respect and appreciate the Big Red Machine, we need to get on board with this group. I don't want to call it the New Red Machine, either. I want it to become its own thing. I want us to be like that team, for sure, but I'm tired of hearing about the past and next year. The time is now. From the radio interviews I've done, I hear that last year was awesome and next year is the year. Next year, I don't want to say, "Next year is the year." I want to say, "This year was the year."

    Winning? I guess he's been hanging out with Charlie Sheen.

    Sam LeCure is bi-winning. He's winning over here; he's winning over there.

    Seems a thought in the general Reds conciousness is that there is still some unfinished business from last season.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Last season was a really fun season. But really, teams get names for what happens in October. There is significant undone work remaining.
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner

    Re: Sam LeCure On Winning

    Yep, October is still what counts even tho the format now really dilutes what teams accomplish just getting there. A multi tier format means who is hot at the moment not who has the best team. Only gripe I have with tiered playoffs tho I understand it from a marketing pov with 30 teams.

    That would be very similar to the BRM days of 75-76; as you remember, Roy, those years were also about a lot of unfinished business. 1970-74 were years of bitter disappointment.

    I like Sam's moxie.

    Yes this team is setting themselves up like the early 70's team. They may never be as good as the BRM but they can have a significant impact on baseball. As long as they don't let last seasons disappointing end affect this season. I like LeCure's comments. Votto has said much the same too. I think 2013 will be a great season with a much better ending than 2012.

    This organization is long overdue for another one.

    Flags do fly forever, but just to keep it in perspective, since the 1990 World Series championship for the Reds, 12 other organizations have won a world series championship (some of them multiple times), and 17 others have not.

    Love to see it happen this year, and then multiple times after that, but looking at the big picture, I'd disagree on "long overdue."

    Yeah, but one of those is the Cubs. They shouldn't count in this conversation.
