It’s that time of year again loyal readers..
Spring training is a short sprint away.
All the winter trades are almost complete..
You are either sitting there saying “Yeah the Reds are going for it, and they look like this could be the year” or you’re saying “Walt just sold the future for a dream of today, I wander what I should do instead of watching this train wreck”
Call me someone who has turned over a new leaf..I’m optimistic.
Yeah I’m not a fan of the cost of the trades we did, but we did them and now we have to make sure they pay off. I’m ready for a good season!
So what’s a good season?
Not coming in last? No, the central got worse over the winter not better. We got better, not worse. Anything other than 1st or 2nd in the division is tragic.
Wild card spot? Ok, let be realistic I’d wouldn’t turn in my fan card if we just made it to a wildcard spot.
NLCS: Yes, that’s the short term goal. I’ll put some money away for those tickets, but that’s just when the party starts right?
NL Champs: Yes, going to the World Series. That’s it. That’s the goal. If we are over .500 come all star break I might be looking at my 401k for ticket assistance, but it maybe a once in a lifetime chance right?
