They got the mother of all lucky breaks last year courtesy of the braves. Kudos to them for taking advantage of it. But they're still lucky.
I guess you are relying on the planets aligning stat.
Every other offensive stat shows that the Cards were the dominant offensive team in the NL for 162 games last year.
The Cards are still a good offensive team this year, good balance, steady hitters, don't strike out.
The Reds, on the other hand, are Joey Votto, a couple of old timers, and the right handed swing away and miss club.
