[1]- In 1994, a players' strike wiped out the last eight weeks of the season and all post-season. Cincinnati was in first place in the Central Division by a half game over Houston when play was stopped. No official titles were awarded in 1994.
[2]- In 1981, the Reds finished with the overall best record in major league baseball. However, a players' strike in the middle of the season resulted in the season being split into two halves. Cincinnati finished second in both halves and was thus ineligible for a post-season appearance.
[3]- In 1999, the Reds finished the regular season tied with the New York Mets for the Wild Card, but lost a one-game playoff.
