    Calling a team the best and actually BEING the best on the field are two different things. You know that, right? That's why we play 162 games, rather than simply call the winner at the beginning of the season. The sportswriters who picked Cincinnati to win this division/league/World Series vastly over-estimated them while overlooking the dangerous machine the Cardinals were building. I'd say some eyes have been opened by what has happened ON THE FIELD, not IN THE PRESS.

    Yes the Cardinals are this good. It starts with drafting great young pitching and developing them "the Cardinal Way" in the minors and once they reach Busch..They are winners..So get used to it..With Shelby Miller, Lance Lynn,Wacha, and Garcia you are going to see alot of Cardinal wins..plus throw in the veteran Wainwright. It has never been more exciting to be a Cardinal fan! So to answer your question..NO the Reds are not the best team because the media picked them! The media does not play the games..Hell the media picked the Dodgers and Angels to win..loook at them!
    It's a long season - they should not be so sure of themselves
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    even if he doesn't do better than .270 - .280 -- he'll bring a speed element that has been missing

    i don't like baker as our manager. i don't think that's a secret but i'm glad a change is made. i just hope he gives it a couple of days before he sneaks cozart back to second.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.


    Ricky henderson has a higher OBP than C. patterson and he's retired. C. Trent 6-14-2008

    Better than normal lineup. Not bad at all.

    A tip of the cap to Dusty for shaking it up and making changes.

    Let's hope this team responds tonight!

    Robinson will have a lower OBP hitting higher in lineup, with the pitcher not staring them in the face the opposing pitcher will go after him more. As his OBP goes down and that of Cozart goes up, people will moan about slap hitting Robinson hitting 2nd, watch

    Why do you let that bother you? It is almost as if you are looking to be upset about something. Let people say what they want. What a novel concept.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Good lineup. Now I hope to see Paul batting second when he plays.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I'm guessing I get another blackout this week with the Angels and Red Sox on in my zone.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    Yep, that's my game. MLB really does shoot itself in the foot with these inane blackout rules. I'm in Montana. I don't have a local market. But if I lived in Guam, if I watched MLB, these rules would really piss me off.

    If I was two miles north of my house I would be blacked out. Take that MLB!

    Blacked out as well. Plus, I pay for MLB.TV. So annoying.
