Let’s recap tonight’s titanic struggle….
W: B. Lincoln (2-3)
L: T. Wood (6-6)
S: J. Grilli (1)
–The entire 2011 season has been one big negative.
–With the loss tonight, the Reds have clinched a losing record for 2011.
–I don’t know what else we can say about this team. When the Reds lose tomorrow, they will have been swept by the Pirates. I’m tired of the losing. I’m exhausted by the season.
I love this franchise, but this has been a very difficult season. These guys have been the least exciting Reds team in a long time. Coming on the heels of the uber-exciting 2010 season…well, it’s just bad.
