Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the League Division Series, League Championship Series or World Series. It combines a broad overview of this season from Buster Olney, a take from Baseball Prospectus, a look toward a potential 2011 move courtesy of Rumor Central and Kevin Goldstein's farm system overview. You can find all the teams on one page by going here.

Now, it's time to kiss the Cincinnati Reds -- the second playoff team to exit -- goodbye.


For the full breakdown of the Reds' future from all angles -- Olney's take, BP's take, Rumor Central's ideas and buzz, and the farm system -- you need to be an ESPN Insider.
