The Angels are favored by many to win the AL West and maybe advance to the WS. Our favorite team just took 2 of 3 games (and the one win by the Angels was a real competitive struggle). To me that proves the Reds are at least a contender for the WS this year.
Yes, the Reds have some weaknesses, but what team doesn't? How about we focus on the good things instead, and let the bad stuff work itself out?
