    the Difference between Reds and Cardinals

    The thing I noticed about the Reds and Cardinals hitters..The Cardinals batters don't take at bats off..no matter what the score of the game is. This game and the Chicago cubs game recently is example of the Reds players packing it in after the First inning..I smelled this coming very early

    I think mentally the Reds checked out its obvious to me. With the boneheaded miscues...If this team would ever need a close door meeting Today is an example of it. Other than that this team will win majority of their games.

    The difference is the Cards continue to cry about things, the Reds don't.

    I don't think there are any substantial differences between the two teams. Both have great hitting and great pitching and will probably be in a dogfight for supremacy in the NL Central for the next few years. I'm sure the Reds have had a couple days where they seem like they just didn't show up; the Cardinals have days just like that, too. Over the course of a 162-game season, every team does.

    Re: the Difference between Reds and Cardinals

    There are two differences between the Cardinals and the Reds.

    1.) The Cardinal staff does a much better job of keeping the baseball in the park. If you look at the pitching staff numbers they are almost identical across the board except HRs allowed and not so surprisingly ERA. Part of the difference is the ballpark, but it is a very small allowance because if you look at the road stats the ratio is about the same. If you don't give up home runs a team needs to string together 2 or 3 hits to score a run.

    2.) The Cardinals are hitting at an absolutely ridiculous clip with runners in scoring position. The Cardinals are at .341, the next highest in the league is Colorado at .285. The NL league average over the past 10 years is .258.
    To put it in better pespective how far out in front of the rest of the league the Cardinals are right now

    The biggest difference between the Reds and Cardinals is that the Reds play in Cincinnati and the Cardinals play in St. Louis.

    While its great that the competition in the NL Central, don't forget that this 2013 is just few batters different than the 2012 team. They were awful streaky last year.

    Don't get a complex over the Cards or the Bucs... If the Reds play the way they were last year and stay healthy.... October baseball will include them.

    But they won't get out of the first round, so who cares? The Cardinals, on the other hand, will once again go deep into the playoffs. And more than likely win their 12th Title.

    The main difference is Reds fans chat about the Reds on a Reds chat board and Cardinals fans chat about the Cardinals on a Reds chat board

    A quick comparison of the two teams stats reveal that they are statistically the closest two teams in the MLB. That's correct, they mirror each other in almost every category. Pitching, offence AND defense.

    It's really quite startling.

    I think we'll get a good preview of the summer Cardinals this weekend. Playing a 4 game home stand, with one marathon game, then going to the Reds...... Give us a good idea how well they are built for the grind.

    I bounce around a few different team boards...... Theirs are quite atrocious. Want to see some of. The best fans in baseball in action? Go to the post dispatch Cards Talk.... Awful there. some guys have a high baseball IQ.... But morons ruin most threads by trolling their own fan base.

    At least those few Cards fans here keep it civil and can have baseball discussions..... Even though sometimes it seems they fancy themselves as 16th century Christian missionaries visiting Central America for the first time.

    The Cardinals play in one of the least HR friendly stadiums in baseball. The Reds play in one of the most HR friendly stadiums in baseball. The Reds are much better on the road at keeping the ball in the ballpark.

    Re: the Difference between Reds and Cardinals

    Alright, let me just step in and put out the word:

    If you are a Cardinals fan and you're coming here for no other reason than to start crap, I'd like to invite you to get a life and take your act elsewhere. For a fan base with 11 titles you sure are an insecure bunch.

    If you're coming to actually discuss baseball like adults, you're more than welcome. But if you make it clear you're just here to be annoying and childish, I'll bounce you right back out of here faster than you came. Seriously - enough is enough.
