The 2017 MLB postseason has seen a lot and we have seen a lot of former Cincinnati Reds players have success in October and to be honest it’s really depressing.
Jay Bruce (Cleveland Indians): He was acquired in August by the New York Mets from a bag of chips. He came up clutch in game 2 of the ALDS against the New York Yankees and then went quiet the last three games as the Indians blew a 2-0 lead and lost three games in a row. Bruce is familiar with that.
Aroldis Chapman (New York Yankees): Won the chip with the Chicago Cubs last year. He signed with the Yankees in the off-season and struggled throughout the season until later part of the season and now he’s back to being the dominant closer that he is. I miss that.
Todd Frazier (Yankees): Acquired by New York from the Chicago White Sox in the summer time. Scored the second run in the two run ninth inning of Game 5 on Wednesday night. Good for him, I guess.
Didi Gregorius (Yankees): Once upon a time a Cincinnati Red. He didn’t get a lot of playing time and the Reds decided to move him to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Lots of Reds fans on social media are upset that they let him go and honestly why are you mad? We didn’t see this coming out of him and we already had Zack Cozart so playing time was very limited. Good for him for making the Reds question the trade but I’m not mad at all because Cozart had his best season of his career this year, starting in the all-star game at shortstop and in the top 10 in batting average.
So many former Reds and its likely some of them might get a World Series ring this season. Sigh.
