    We're pretty good

    Good starting pitching staff.

    Good lineup.

    Pretty good bullpen.

    What am I missing?

    Oh yeah, defense. Well, other than that, we're pretty good.

    IF Cueto and Volquez pitch all season the way they have so far the Reds will have a very nice season. There are some question marks ( catching, defense, middle relief ) but it is time for Reds fans to be excited.

    Re: We're pretty good

    I'll tell you what, with this team's starting pitching they have a legitimate shot at winning four out of every five games they play. Of course, we all know they won't win at an .800 clip, but after getting a first look at the rotation I wish I had been more optimisitic in my win-loss prediction. Mid to upper 80s feels more right now.

    I think they have a good shot at finishing above .500. That's all I'll predict right now.

    I know how you feel. I'm incredibly excited after watching Cueto and Volquez pitch right now, but I'm trying to stay grounded as I know they're both rookies and are going to struggle at times. But right now, this is the most fun I've had during an opening week in a while. I think if they stay even remotely consistent though, that we can easily have the best rotation in the Central, especially if Fogg gets moved out for Belisle

    The Reds have studly YOUNG pitching.

    I haven't said that in years. I may have never said it before.

    Matt,I have been a Reds fan since 1971 and I don't think I have ever said that. But I can now. With Ceuto and Volquez and some other young arms around it's one of the more optimitic times regarding pitching I can remember.

    Re: We're pretty good

    I feel pretty good about the team, too, but I'll stifle it for now. I'm very impressed with the two kids, but I have been concerned about Arroyo and the 5th starting spot (whoever that may be), and the bullpen, though better, is nowhere near lights out.

    The flaw in this whole feel good scenario is the offense. There will be nights (especially when the league figures out Edinson and Johnny) when we're going to need 7 runs to win. So far, only Kepp and maybe Phillips have shown they are in the zone. Maybe Griffey in the last two games, but we have to have production from Dunn, Encarnacion and first base to win consistantly. And for all the defense he provides, Corey Patterson will be an albatross before the season is over. Then there's Dusty pulling out players at will even when we're behind...

    But enough worries for now. This is a better team than we've seen here in the last 7 years. I said 86 wins and I'll stick by it. And won't that be fun come October??

    I feel better about this team than I have in years.

    I feel ridiculously excited about 2-3 years from now.
