Reds scored 790 runs last year as opposed to 736 for the Cardinals. This combined with the fact that ERA doesn't factor in unearned runs and the Reds defense being vastly better last year than the Cards and it becomes a lot clearer. The Reds earned the division last year and played better than the Cardinal did.

91 wins, usually that is good enough to win the Central, that is how we won it, but we were a completely different team last year.

Reds Errors for 2010 = 72!
Cards errors for 2010 = 99

That won you the division last year IMO. When teams don't screw up in the field, you will win ballgames.

Well, we got blown out in losses and won the close ones last year.

The complete opposite of what we're doing this year.
