At least, I assume that’s what’s behind it.

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB! Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged-in fans from each team! Reds fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse!

If ever there was visual representation of our collective desire for the 2019 season to move aside and let some 2020 fireworks begin, it’s this week’s FanPulse results produced by you, the select set of internet-votey Cincinnati Reds fans who continue to participate in this little online survey thingamajig.

Another week of being out of the 2019 race, another week of fan confidence slowly, but surely, leaking its way out.

That’s to be expected of any fanbase in any disappointing season, I suppose. Factor in the years and years prior to 2019 of epic failure in the standings from these Reds, and it’s hard to truly fathom anything other than what these most recent results suggest. Perhaps it’s some combination of Eugenio Suarez swatting homers at an epic rate, or maybe it’s that Sonny Gray has become a legitimate ace, however, since those are both certainly building blocks for 2020, too.

Who knows. Sign up and vote, though, so that this sample size might someday become relevant enough to truly tell us something.

Also, get here soon, 2020. Por favor.
