    Looking back on the Reds 2012 season, what was the standout memory?

    So many good things happened during those 162 days of baseball.

    Opening Day...

    Joey Votto's grandslam on mothers day when were down by 3 or 4 against the Nats........


    That pirates vs reds weekend where charlie sheen came down, and marty did the whole shave marty day for the poor kids with cancer.......

    The 10 game winning streak

    The Reds persevering without Votto in the lineup

    The Arizona comeback game where we were down 6 runs

    Homer Bailey's no hitter against the Pirates

    Clinch Day against the Dodgers

    So many nice memories from 2012

    Which was your fave!

    Choking away the playoff series against the Giants. 2-game lead. Three home games. See ya. That is unforgettable.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    agreed -- but I'd tag on the wildly improbable idea that the SP didn't miss a start
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    What's memorable 162 games, or 5 games?

    It sucks that it happened. But i'd take an entertaining season like the one we had, as opposed to a boring playoffs.

    3 games. All losses. Out of the playoffs. Why would you ask for opinions and then try to question them? Makes no sense. You remember what you want and let everyone else do the same.

    Each person decides that for themselves. That is why they are called opinions. If you followed your line of thinking, even if the Reds had won the World Series, you would have to pick the regular season (journey) over the World Championship (destination).

    Marty shaving his head.

    Votto's AB against Lowe and his 3 HR game

    The howl.

    Losing Bray, Masset and Madsen and still having one of the best bullpens in baseball.

    Yes the finish was disappointing but this was a great year and next year should be even better.

    Seeing Jay Bruce's walk-off homerun against the Mets

    It's the first walk-off homerun that I've seen in person and Jay is my favorite player so that made it even better. It was also the same night my grandma died so it was bittersweet, to say the least

    Seeing Scott Rolen flail away on a hanging slider in the sun deck of Game 5.

    Longest drive home of my life

    For the season... I'll always remember how guys stepped up when Joey went down

    For a moment... The Chapman tumble was awesome. I was so jacked about how we were playing and to see his excitement was great.

    Agree I think this was not only the most exciting moment but also the most important moment, it really defined what our season was about.

    The optomist in me says: Todd Frazier's little run at ROY. Best Bullpen, best record, and close to the best starting rotation. Also, Votto's multi-HR game that closed out with a grand slam.

    The pessimist in me says: Drew Stubbs not showing up to the party, again. A boat load of injuries, and Dusty Baker's in-game managment decisions.


    The pessimist in me wins, though, with this: Our post season showing was horrendous despite excellent pitching in most of the games.

    There is a lot to be optimistic about for 2013. I'm looking forward to my first Opening Day, after spending Opening Day 2012 in Key West for a wedding I decided it was time to take the day off work and get tickets for 2013.
    Pinch hitting for Pedro Borbon...
