Re: Who is the Reds biggest rival?
Since the Reds are more often battling for 4th, 5th, @ 6th in the NL Central I would say it comes from one of the teams that we are usually battling with Pittsburgh or Milwaukee. We have a past with Pittsburgh that is a good basis for a rivalry with the Pirates and the Brewers seem to have had our number over the past couple of years when we were in (or thought so anyway) the division race. My vote is Pittsburgh since they are the closest NL team and play in a more similar city.
In actuality I don't feel as if there is a real good rivalry until two teams are good for an extended period of time and are battling each other for titles pretty often.
FWIW my NL Central rankings from most liked to least liked team are 1. Cincy , 2. Pittsburgh, 3. St. Louis, 4. Milwaukee, 5. Houston, 6. Chicago
