The Nation really needs to send our thanks and appreciation for a fun season to the Cincinnati Reds. It all ended more suddenly than we had hoped, but I have no complaints. I got more enjoyment out of this baseball season than I’ve experienced in at least a decade.

Also, I wanted to thank all of you who make Redleg Nation so much fun each and every day. We have the greatest group of readers/commenters that you’ll find anywhere on the interwebs. I’m also quite proud of my fellow editors, who are a pretty darn good crew of thoughtful, passionate Reds fans.

Now…when do pitchers and catchers report to spring training?
