Well, its over

The Reds season ended today, at 73-89. A fifth straight losing season, and three games worse than last year, while putting 820 runs on the board. I will do some more analysis on this in the coming weeks, but for now, suffice it to say that this boat was sunk on pitching. We finished 27 games behind St. Louis--can we really expect to compete next year?

I had some hope when the season started, but it was over quickly. On Redszone, I predicted a 78 win season, so I was just slightly over-optimistic. Danny Graves alone cost us that many games.

Well, warm up the hot stove. We'll do some analysis on what I still contend was, in many ways, a tragic waste of talent.
