    I honestly believe the season ended with Sunday's loss to the Cubs. I know it's just one game in the standings, that theoretically could be made up elsewhere at another time. But, to me, it was all about momentum and a mindset. They HAD to win that game...and didn't.

    Speaking of posters who are gone, has anybody heard from @ChickenWyngz lately? I don't think he's been a part of the last two or three series. Did he get DFA'd and nobody tell me?

    He knows it's all in fun. At least he should. I'm never serious on BGP. Everyone has to know that by now.
    Of course, I do. At least I had the guts to take a crack at starting a series thread on the road against a very good NL team as my first one back from my hiatus.

    Yeah @TheDeuce. I didn't blame @nkypete, I blamed management.

    You don't get bonus points for guts when you ruined our season!

    It's my fault. I believed him when he said he was ready. Obviously rushed him. Should've listened to the training staff and given him another start at AAA to see if he was ready. Thought his excitement would carry over to the rest of the team and they'd bounce back from Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

    The Reds did him a big favor letting him go. His HOF manager resume would have taken a hit if they had kept him.
