The Reds have not had a sweep in San Fran since......since........wait for it.......1972!!!!

To give everyone here a better appreciation of just how long ago that was, not only could you not be gay and get married in San Fran, being gay was still seen as abnormal behavior in San Fran.

I don't exactly know what this means, but I've spent the last hour reading the book of Revelation to try and find some significance to the sweep.

Team is finally healthy. They are playing good, smart ball.

Hamilton is having a fine year. Same as Mez and Cozart.
Pitching has finally gotten consistent.

Go Red-Legs!

Amazing. Since I last posted on Jun 6 the Reds have put themselves back in contention. Who would have called that? Did they get their hands on some of Mikey's pixie dust?

Their offense is looking anemic so far in San Diego. If they lose again, they're back to two games behind for the last wild card.

Maybe they blew their load in San Francisco.

Or maybe it's a... jinx!

I have to say, part of me feels better that their losing in San Diego even though I root for them.

It's the unknown that unnerves me more than anything. Winning on the West Coast is just plain frightening.

The Reds are too inconsistent to be considered a serious playoff team. I can understand them having a letdown but to score only 3 runs in 3 games and to be swept and also to lose both series to the Pads who are not exactly a juggernaut. This team even with a lot of the guys back still has a lot of holes to fill. If they finish at .500 that will be an accomplishment for this outfit.

I take full responsibility for the jinx.

I am quantum entangled with the Reds. If I'm up, they're down.

I would be tempted to say that Pete Rose put a curse on them, but then, they did win a World Series shortly after he left.

I'd say that the more likely truth is that the entire city has been under a curse since their last world series win.

Here's why. The last Cincy Championship for anything major = 1990.

The year Mikey took over = 1991


There IS NO COINCIDENCE. It is the Curse of the Mikehole.

They had a great 95 team I thought but they lost their swagger when they traded D. Sanders for some mediocre pitching...that and when they met the Braves pitching staff.

I yet to see any city with at least two major sports teams see the futility Cincy has from 1991 on.

"There IS NO COINCIDENCE. It is the Curse of the Mikehole"

I also wonder if Wyche had a say in the negative mojo also when mikey told him to get his hat then. Similar to Boston's curse of the Bambino?

The good news today is the confidence factor is real high that the Reds won't lose today.

What ended up killing the Reds for over a decade was the trade for KGJ. Essentially they sold their soul to a has been Hall of Famer who was washed up.

A couple of years ago the Reds were on the verge of winning a World Series, then their best pitcher and hitter get injured inexplicably. What is worse, they just signed Votto to a large long contract like KGJ, and he became injured the same year and never has been right since.

This is why I feel the team, if not the city, is cursed. Maybe it is the curse of Mikehole.

What's bad about the Griffey/Vottos deal is when their "star" becomes a bust or semi bust it is real damaging because of the large amount of capital involved and the Reds don't have the financial muscle to overcome that.

This is one of the reasons why it's tough to be a fan of either the Reds or bungs. There's been a lot of bad Red's years along with the bungs and what's sad is when they (either team) get a chance they bungle it up. Psycho nailed it when he put up that graph showing the agony of being a bungal fan - I bet the graph would be similar for the Reds.

I'm not sure if I can watch this team anymore.

I don't know who hurts worse, Joey at the plate or me watching him.

This just in, the color red wants the name of the Cincinnati Reds changed to something else.

I guess the color red feels that its name is being dragged through the mud too many times and feels offended.

I still think it's amusing that they briefly changed their name from the Reds to the "Redlegs" during the communist paranoia of the 50's.

@TheyDey,

LOL! The announcer said the Reds hadn't gone a game without a strikeout since 1997, and how the Cubs had the second longest streak in MLB history with at least one strikeout from their pitchers, yet the Reds hadn't struck out at all tonight into the bottom of the 8th. What happened next? Jay Bruce struck out!

JINX!

The minute he said that, I knew Bruce was going to strike out.

By the way, another streak, no five game sweep for the Reds since 1976.
