6 losses later, Cries of another "5 year plan" or "Firesale" come up while i just hold my ears. How many 5 year plans does a die hard fan have to go through? I have seen former Reds like Brett Boone, Mike Cameron, Reggie Sanders, Paul Konerko and many others go on to have 2 to 3 great years, be huge factors on playoff and World Series teams while my beloved Reds have been nothing more than an 80 win team since 1999. I try to pump myself up when the Yankees, Cubs, Red Sox are on Fox and ESPN's national telivised games every week but I always end up angry and upset before the first inning is over.
Hasn't the MLB figured it out yet?
Why is the NFL the most sucsessful leauge in the planet?
Oh yeah that salary cap thing!
Every fan can go into the season believing that team has a chance, Every team no matter how bad has atleast one superstar.
When then NFL Draft has higher ratings than the whole MLB Post Season, one would think they would figure it out.
These are tough times for being a reds fan in the Nati'. Another 5 year plan no matter who is a GM won't make a difference though. The Young Guys get good, they want to get paid good, so they say goodbye to the reds.
So Major Leauge Baseball, Please let all of America enjoy your game.
