Re: The Hardball Times Reds Projection
I think the central is wide open with the exception of the pirates.
The Cardinals have 2 trump cards in Carpenter and Pujols, but other than those two there are a lot of question marks.
The Cubs have a great offense and if you remember correctly 2 years ago Lee was putting up Pujols type numbers and in the MVP consideration. Their rotation is led by one of the biggest head cases in the game. I think if they start off slow this year they will implode.
The Brewers are dangerous if they can perform to expectatoins and also stay healthy.
The reds also have several questions but do have some potential as well as a wild card in Baily.
And the Pirates are the pirates.
