Re: The Defending National League Central Division Champion, Cincinnati REDS...
Having been a follower of baseball since 1996 and never seeing the Reds win a division title or make the playoffs, last season was a great run and I hope that we can replicate that success. What will be a barometer for me is how we do against top teams. Last year, we did a great job feeding on bottom dwellers, but struggled against teams like the Phillies, Cards, etc. and that's why I knew we probably weren't going to fare well in the playoffs. Beating those teams in season series will be critical this year. I want to go storming into the playoffs instead of limping in.
