    Did you see the Reds winning 97 games before the 2012 season started? Every year a team or two surprise. I think this year's surprise is Milwaukee. From August 1st until the end of the year in 2012 they were 36-23. And why would the Brewers' starting pitching regress? Gallardo is 27. Fiers is 28. Estrada is 29. Peralta is 24. Lohse is older but proven. Four-fifths of that rotation is coming into its prime years. We will see. I don't see it as going all that far out onto some limb.

    Lohse - 2.86
    Gallardo - 3.66
    Estrada - 3.64
    Fiers - 3.74
    Peralta - 2.47 (Limited starts but touted prospect)

    3) I figured the Reds couldn't possibly stay as healthy in the rotation in 2013.

    I have the Reds at 92 wins. The Brewers at 94. It isn't out of the question with the offense the Brewers have and that starting rotation that they nip the Reds at the wire.
    Brewers are without Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez for a good part of the season. No way their offense survives with Alex Gonzalez and Y. Bentencourt at third and first.

    That rotation lacks innings and depth, and their bullpen is worse than the Cardinals. Plus, they have a terrible defense as well. They are going to give up a ton of runs.

    I'm just not seeing it, but always nice to see strong opinions

    You could be right. Brewers could struggle to reach .500 or win the division or, most likely, finish somewhere in between. That's part of the appeal of baseball. You got to play the games to find out.

    Cards have jumped ahead of the Nationals 3-0 in the first. The Cards are playing awfully well right now. On the other hand the Nationals are not. Which should bode well for the Reds this weekend.

    He's 1-4, they might be better off facing him.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    Nationals miss Cueto and Strasburg.

    I don't know what Mike Matheny did to make the MLB front office mad but they're the only team in baseball to only play 6 games at home thus far. It has seemed like one long perpetual road trip for them.

    Wow, I don't even know what to say there. Did they eventually tag him out or was he out automatically because he ran outside the base line?

    Without watching I'm sure he was automatically out. The logic side of my brain says guys should do that more often.

    Especially when they just returned from a knee injury that cost them an entire season.

    I saw it on MLB Network, the ump calls him out as soon as he runs by the plate. Out of the baseline.
