    You can say that again. At some point both teams should just be ejected.

    The first and third extra inning for the Reds was extra harsh. The only thing that could have made that inning more like csfbl is if instead of the first two strikeouts, the first guy hit into a double play and the guy from third didn’t score.

    One of these 0-1 teams need to win today so the Marlins game tomorrow is at a proper time.

    The Reds postseason reminded me of playing Rent's Bucktown teams in the 50-60s

    Welp. Our season is over.

    I doubt we re-sign Bauer, but if we can keep this group together another year, I really like our chances.

    Time to part ways with Iglesias though. Never been a huge fan of his.

    Bill kept repeating that he did it to the silver back roughneck riders in 2005 or something as well

    TCL record is actually crazy old. Bags set it back in the 1980's, the first decade of the league, with 15 straight losses for the Braggadocio franchise. After winning game 1 of the 1983 DCS, the team lost the next 4, got swept in both the '85 and '86 DCS, and then lost the first 3 games of the 1991 DCS before finally winning a game (don't worry, they also lost game 5). A couple other franchises have lost 10 straight games, but not for about 50 seasons - Ken and Hank both did it in the 2080s.

    In terms of series streaks, though, we do break the MLB record. I believe the MLB record is 10, held by the Braves and the Cubs. The Humboldt/Laredo/Deadwood/Cleveland franchise laughs at that mark. They lost in the 1987 LCS and then lost in the DCS the next 14 times they made the playoffs, for a series streak of 15 straight. Impressive!
