One key injury to the Rays and they're shot in AL East. Cf. 1999 Reds.
The 1999 Reds rotation was a season of over performance from average to below average pitchers and Pete Harnisch.
The 2008 Rays have three STUDS at the top of the rotation under 26 years old.
Not even close.
In fact the 2009 Reds have more in common with the 2008 Rays than the 1999 Reds.
