The Reds' season is over

Well, it was a great season. It's too bad that it ended so badly. The Cincinnati Reds lost today to the San Francisco Giants, 6-4. After taking the first two games, the Reds dropped three games in a row. Reds lose the NLDS. Season over.

The Reds suffered from a problem they have had over the last couple of years. They don't hit in the clutch. According to Marty Brennaman, the Reds left 39 runners on base.

On to the offseason. Does Reds manager Dusty Baker come back? Will the Reds put up with the light hitting Drew Stubbs? Will they replace him with a bona fide lead off hitter? Will they move closer Aroldis Chapman to the starting rotation or keep him in the closer's role? It's going to be a long offseason.
