Re: Are the Reds one of the best teams in the MLB right now?
Alot of these replies are an overreaction to yesterday's blowout win.
I still think they need to prove it against the good teams.
Clicking on all cylinders, for me, is putting together an 7 to 10 game win streak where the pitching and hitting both pull their weight (like last year after the AS break). And beating up on good teams, not the Marlins.
I'm happy with what they've achieved considering the injuries. I didn't expect certain guys to struggle as badly as they have.
Definitely a well put together team. Unfortunately the manager is hindering the potent offense with a .235 OBP guy batting second.
