    Reds lost 5-4 today and yet lose another Sunday game. The starters have not gone more than 5 innings since last Sunday. Votto was put on the IL.

    Very busy. I wish there was a little beer drinking performer on stage after the game, but I can't complain. Probably the last great day of the season for the vendors.

    Was hoping I could go 3-1 for us, but alas another .500 series.

    This is basically a .500 team, which isn't bad. Hopefully we'll be quite a few games above .500 next year, without a crap start.

    I believe I saw the Reds were 4-1-3 in their last 8 series. Unfortunately, they've gone 4-6 in their last 10 games, while the Cardinals have gone 7-3. Yesterday, like last Sunday, were games you HAD to win, IMO. When the two top dogs in the division come to town and you have a chance to make up ground, you have to take advantage of it.

    I admire this teams resiliency and their ability to bounce back from what have been some devastating losses. But, I am often disappointed at their lack of a killer instinct to finish their opponent off once there's blood in the water. I guess both can be attributed to the youth on the team. It's been a very puzzling (and often frustrating) type of year.
