The season’s flame has been extinguished on September 28th. It was a great way for the Reds end this disaster of a 2014 season. The Reds managed to eliminate two teams from two factors. The Reds eliminated the Milwaukee Brewers from playoff contention, who had a great chance to return to October baseball till a 2nd half choke, just like the Reds. On Sunday, the Reds eliminated the Pirates chance to play for a Game 163 against the St. Louis Cardinals, Johnny Cueto helped his own cause on Sunday and had insurance to win his 20th game of the year. It could be Cueto’s last start in Cincinnati or will be trade bait in the 2015 season.
