Reds are Alive and Kicking
Warning: Sports blog, discontinue reading for anything meaningful.
Reds have won 9 in a row and are in 1st place here in mid-June. They were picked by most to be come in last in their division but the new ownershp has changed everything. This time last year everybody was talking Bengals, now that conversation has been put off until August or so. Its been a long time since we had real confidence in a Reds team. The trades for Bronson Arroyo and Brandon Philips have turned out genius. I'm hoping to get down to a game here in the next few days. I have only been to 3 so far this year, I'm in a slump :)
Pitching, defense, power and speed is a great formula for a long run to the playoffs. Its fun to be a Reds fan again.
