    Central division trophy

    Anybody know anything about the National League Central trophy in this USA Today photo? http://www.usatoday.com/sports/mlb/s...ral/57827484/1

    Is this a new thing? I don't remember anything similar in 2010, but I could be missing something.

    Anyone have any ideas? Go Redlegs.

    I don't think there is a Central Division trophy, I think that's just bad reporting (shocking). I think it's the trophy that this team has been carrying around most of the year for, well, seemingly the heck of it. That trophy being in that picture is, I think, akin to having the mascot in the picture.

    Cards fans think this trophy is Bush League and that we have no right to do anything fun like use a fake trophy. Just get over it already!!! It is in no way a slap in the face to any team, it's more of just an inside joke with a crappy flea market trophy. perhaps they were just having fun? is that not allowed? You are allowed to celebrate for winning a division title. I know its been a while since the Cards won one and yes I know you won the world series last year, God knows everytime the Reds say anything you all remind us of the month and a half hot streak you had last year. Stop being bitter and quit worrying about stupid stuff Cards fans. That's all

    Pretty sure that is just the Ohio Cup for beating the Indians.

    ETA: maybe not, google images show it looking different. I listened to the WLW celebration after the clinch and Brantley referred to carrying around the Ohio Cup over and over.

    GOLD CUP: The Reds’ postgame victory celebration Saturday included players drinking from a big, gold trophy cup. Not exactly the Stanley Cup, and not exactly a priceless heirloom.

    “I got it from an antique store,” catcher Devin Mesoraco said. “I think it came from talking about the Ohio Cup (Reds-Indians trophy), but I’m not sure.”

    As one story goes, outfielder Ryan Ludwick had been talking about “winning the cup.” Mesoraco bought an actual “cup,” which has sat in the middle of the Reds’ clubhouse for about half the season.

    “Everybody was happy about the Cup,” Mesoraco said. “We talked about trying to win the Cup every series.”

    When I was driving home from Cleveland after the Indians finished the sweep (we left in the 7th or so), I recall Marty saying that the Indians would retain the cup in the event of a season series push.

    It's nice Mes got to choose the trophy and the rest of the team adopted it. Hey, it's better than getting stuck a nasty old falling apart trophy.

    C'mon people. This cup is clearly a tacky inside joke. This team needs to remember their legacy as the Big Red Machine, act like they have been there before, and pose with a trophy when and IF they win the NL pennant or World Series.

    Or, they're a team full of guys that like to have fun. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this fake trophy. Who the hell are we to tell a team how they can or can't celebrate?
