Re: Which Corner Are You In?
I'm really enjoying the playoff team this season. But I'm more excited about the future than I am about this year. I don't think the Reds have much of a chance in the playoffs and I'm not satisfied with seeing the Reds make the playoffs. The Reds will have a fighting chance in the first round but odds are they won't get past the Phillies when they have to play them. I want to see them win the World Series again in the near future, anything less is failure. That is why I'm excited for the future of this team. I think the team will possibly be at a great point in 2012, after Leake, Wood, and Chapman have developed at little more. I also believe the other teams in the Reds division are at crossroads where the Reds could make a move to dominate the division for several years. The Cubs are well the Cubs and have several big, wasted contracts. But the Cardinals have proven this year that they may have several great players on their team but they don't have any role players or middle level players to make them a true 'team'. And the potential of signing Pujols to a $30 million plus annual salary could handicap their team for a long time to come.
