We’re all fans here obviously, but I think we all have to admit that it’s been quite some time since the Reds have been any good. Probably since 1999, perhaps 2000 if you want to be generous and consider 85 wins to be good. So why do we put up with it?
Go read the entire thing and consider why we do this to ourselves. And why we’re going to continue to support these old Redlegs, no matter what.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
