    You know, regardless of how crappy this team has been for the last eight years, it's sad to see it end once again. The needs of this team are well documented. Today's performance was typical of what we've seen all year--two or three players hitting and the rest AWOL. After Volquez, Arroyo, Harang, and occasionally Cueto, we give up great bunches of runs.

    And yet, I long for February and spring training for it is a sad day.

    Regardless of how disappointing this season was, I remain optimistic. In my view, this season was all about improvement and experience. In many areas we showed improvement except in the all-important defensive category. I'm optimistic about our starting pitching and our bullpen. I'm optimistic about our young players. I'm optimistic about our payroll flexibility for this off season with so many dead weight contracts coming off the books. Heck, I'm even optimistic about Dusty. Getting these automatic outs off the team alone will improve the club for next season. I'll accept youthful & rookie mistakes/slumps...at least you've got upside and room for improvement. I'm just sick of seeing those same mistakes/slumps from over-the-hill vets getting paid much more than they're worth.

    I'll bid a fond farewell to.....

    Paul Bako
    Javier Valentine
    Corey Patterson
    David Weathers
    Andy Phillips
    Jolbert Cabrera
    Gary Majewski
    Josh Fogg

    Good luck whereever you catch on. And however cliche it is...."We'll get 'em next year". :O)

    I can only hope your farewell comes true, but for some reason I expect some of those players to be back next year. Sadly. I'd even add a couple more, but I know they will be back, so why bother?

    Still, I look forward to 2009.

    Looking forward to an offseason that should see a major move or two. I think the 09 team may look even more different than we think.

    Great job on the game threads to all -- appreciate the yeoman work of all the regulars.

    It seems like just yesterday when everybody was up in arms over Valentin's thoughts on Volquez.

    See you boys in spring.

    One more time, with feeling: This team that got swept this weekend is also the 2008 Reds.

    A bunch of work lies ahead. I wouldn't count on 2009 being a whole lot different from 2008.
