Believe me if rather see the reds sitting on top right now, but I totally agree that they aren't in a bad spot at all.
Speaking of Injuries, the Cardinals have lost Chris Carpenter (arguably their ace), Furcal (starting SS) and Motte (their closer who lead the league in saves last year) for the season. Matt Adams has been out 2 weeks.
At least the Reds will get their players back.
