The Reds are better than the Pirates, the problem is that the Pirates will only have to beat the Reds once, which they certainly can. It sucks for both teams that the season hinges on one game, but, that is why ALL of the other 162 are important.

The Reds need to fire their hitting instructor Brook Jacoby in the offseason. This team has sorely under-achieved a bit offensively and may kill them in the playoffs. Hell, they were just shut out by Dice-K!!

Are they going to include Hamilton on their post season roster?

Oh yeah. They'd be stupid not too.

The Reds certainly did not finish the year the way a post season team wants, they lost their last five games, scoring just 8 runs.

The past week has been disappointing, for sure.

I'm still holding out hope for an all-Ohio World Series!

Reds look like a decent team on paper, but facts say Bucs are the better team. Over 19 head-to-head games, Bucs are 11-8, and should be 12-7 if not for Jordy Mercer airmailing the last out two weeks ago - with the catcher running no less.

You should be delighted the season comes down to one game where Reds can run Cueto out there.

It's just a matter of if the Reds' offense shows up. If they do, they'll have no trouble beating the Pirates and going onto the World Series.

So who ultimately gets the blame for tonight's loss? Dusty? The players?

If I'm Castellini (and thank god I'm not), I'd be seriously evaluating Dusty and Jocketty's worth to this team right now. There's too much talent (on paper, at least) for the season to have ended the way it did.

The team has shown no heart these past few weeks and was not deserving of advancing to the next round. It's a shame. There won't be wholesale changes in the offseason other than Choo going to the Yankees and Billy Hamilton taking over CF. If they fire Jacoby, I will consider it a successful offseason. That team is so much better than their offensive numbers indicate.

The Reds grossly underachieved this year. Had they "hit to their baseball card", they wouldn't be in this mess. Oh well. They got what they deserved.
