Are they a better team though? Seems to me a the start of the season everyone was predicting this team to be at or near the bottom of the division. Yes I agree with you on the point we need to step it up.. we better make a run now while St. Louis is without Pujols because Houston is going to over take us. With the Rocket returning to go along with Oswalt and Pettite. We are going to need to beat the weaker teams and it is pretty bad when at home we can't at least go 4-3. We should of won at least 2-3 more of those games if the errors didn't eat us up or the bullpen didn't let one slip away. I love the start of this team, they have shown more heart and I know they want to win, they just need to believe they can win. But to sweep a White Sox team; who just got Riske from the Boston to bolster there pen, are a strong hard nose team and still champs. If we take 2 of 3 that in it self is a win. Now I don't want to sound like I'm dogging the Reds or anything because I'm not. Just every season we start off good and then right around midway point we fall off the face of the Earth. The Reds need some upgrades fast to stay in there and I know its early, but this is the best time to get better while we are still about a week from Clemens return and about a month from knowing if Pujols will return. The more ground we can gain now the better it will be later in the season.
