Winter meetings are scheduled for Dec 5-8 but the stalled talks on the CBA have stirred talk of cancelling the meetings. I'm guessing they go on as scheduled and I doubt the Reds see much action during the meetings.
Of note is the fact that the big trade the Mariners just pulled off netted them a SS so that should officially close the book on the Cozart to the Mariners trade talks and rumors. Not sure who that leaves as possible suitors for Cozart. As the rest o... [More]

I see we have once again timed out, so here is a thread if anyone hears anything they'd like to talk about.

Strangely happy to see the Cubs win--mostly because the Cubs fans I know personally are so overjoyed and have waited for so long. My best friend's mother's 99th birthday began a few minutes after the Cubs clinched. She was wearing her Cubs shirt and hat. She had most of her extended family flying in to see her during her birthday week and she told them that this was the best birthday present she ever got. This is just after being diagnosed with end stage lymphoma. &... [More]

The Cubs are choking at home, resulting in the Indians being one game away from a World Series championship. Will the Cubs manage to send the series back to Cleveland, or is tonight the night Cleveland takes it all? We'll know in a few hours.

And up 3 games to 2. Hard to imagine that the world series this year could be the Cubs versus the Indians. Not exactly a match that jumps to the top of the preseason prediction list.
Onward to the WS!!

Hell has not yet frozen over and the Cubs live on to the next round. Can both of these states continue? We'll see in the next week how they do against the Dodgers.

Now that the Blue Jays have gotten by the wild card playoff (bye-bye Orioles) and have won game one versus Texas, and the Mets fell to the inevitable even year juggernaut, the SF Giants (what can you say about MadBum that hasn't been said when it comes to his mastery in must win games?) we are on the nitty gritty division series. Who to root for? I'm still leaning a bit towards the Giants.

The last series of the season (assuming the Reds are not going into the playoffs) is always bittersweet to me. Watching the games, even in the background while doing something else, is such a part of much of the year, starting with high hopes in spring training and not often seeing those hopes realized, that I miss them when it is off season. How many days 'til pitchers and catchers report?
On another note, it appears that the Reds improved play once a few key bullpen members came... [More]

Just about the only question remaining in the Reds season is whether or not Homer Bailey pitches again. Price hinted that he might start Monday night. Guess we will have to wait and see.

A strange 4 game series with the Pirates starts tonight, with a day-night doubleheader tomorrow and a Sunday day game. Only two of the games are being carried by FSOhio (no makeup game and bumped by the Bengals - Steelers game on Sunday). Such is life when your team is in last place.
