Another Cincinnati Reds season has come to a close without a playoff berth. My predictions of glory in the 150th year of the team, in the final career year of great broadcaster Marty Brennaman, were wrong. There is no joy in Mudville.
But the team showed unusual resilience and spark with lots of possibilities and potential. All to say. Wait till next year. 177 days until Opening Day 2020. Go Reds!
