After the sweep of St. Louis, I'm convinced no other team will even hang with the Reds after the All-Star break. Both the Brewers and Cardinals have a solid rotation and offense. However, they both lack solid defense up the middle and more importantly their bull-pens stink.

The Reds have played well the first 6 weeks without 40% of their rotation. Since getting Cueto and Bailey back, those 2 are 4-0 with an ERA just over 1.


Look for the Reds to win the division by 10 or so games.

I think the Cards have to much firepower to fall that far back and once Albert gets going they will be that much tougher, unless of course they trade him. The Brewers....possibly the biggest disappointment in baseball in the early going but they are heating up. Now the White Sox can hold that title alone. Granted the Reds were the favorite going in and look to be the best team in that division but 10 games is a stretch.

Have you seen our schedule for June? It's gonna be tough. I still hope we can make it past the first round of the playoffs this year.
Good to see the Whiny little b1tches get swept for once.

Better hope Dusty doesn't destroy the starters.


That's one of those unfair labels Dusty got stuck with. Our pitchers suck on their own this year w/o Dusty ruining their arms.:D

Volquez and Smith sent down. Maloney and Frazier called up. I'm happy to see Frazier get the call, but not so for Maloney. Also, Danny Ray Herrera just got DFA.

One of this year's nice surprises. Good to see them doing well, as long as they don't beat out the Reds in the standings.:)

I think Pittsburgh is looking the best in the Central right about now.
