The horse race that started on March 31st ended on September 17th. To explain it all, the postseason run is over. The Reds managed to self-eliminate by Cubs walkoff, which ended a run for the National League Central title on September 15th. On September 17th, Cubs managed to sweep and eliminate the Reds from at least a postseason spot. The offseason starts on September 29th, but literally started on September 19th against the Central leading St. Louis Cardinals. The Reds didn’t do much and failed to win another series in St. Louis, haven’t done so since 2011. Delta Flight 8886 is in the books for the 2014 year, here’s to a finish of avoiding a 90 loss season.
