You are either a Cards fan with. Reds name, hopelessly pessimistic or unaware of the Reds lineup's track records which almost always will end up very close to norms by seasons end. Cold starts are not unusual for hitters as April tends to be the month they are catching up with pitching plus the Reds have faced excellent oitching in almost every series...pitching that is for real and not just against the Reds.
As for Cards fans here I see the growing number as testament to the growing rivalry between teams that are both good. That and their forum is pretty poor which is acompliment to Boss And crew. Besides I like getting viewpoints that aren't all Rosy Red. If they are here to discuss and opine great! The Reds have a rich tradition but give Saint Loo props there. They are one of the few teams whose history may outshine the Queen cities.
