haha nice, finally someone with some sort of faith for this team!

They don't matter anyway, but it's still annoying talking to my Indians Friends...

Isn't he the same guys who said the REDS were one of six teams to not have a chance of winning the world series this year.

I'm not sure I'd call it faith. His Reds prediction seems to more of a shot at the NL Central than anything else. Not exactly a ringing endorsement.

No, I think that was Verducci, who kal referenced in the original post.

I'll take what I can get. Let's be honest, a large part of the reason why I believe that the Reds have a shot is because the Central is so crappy. It's just a fact that this division is not great. The Reds may not be contenders in a better division.

That said, the Reds are not in a better division, so they do have a chance to win this thing. And once you are in the playoffs, anything can happen.

I think there is a recent precedent of a less than stellar team from this division winning a World Series. Why can't it be the Reds this year?

Hope springs eternal.
