    Do you believe yet?

    I do!!!!

    I know, I know.........it's much too early to be getting fired up about this team and having unrealistic expectations. Atleast that's what the negative nellies would say.

    There is something special about this team. It's amazing.......you get rid of a couple of cancer primadonnas, and the Votto's, Bruce's, and others step up with a positive contagious attitude, and voila!!!! lookie what we got!!!!

    The starting pitching is what we hoped it would be! The bullpen is what we hoped it would be!!!! and finally the hitting appears to be coming around!!!!

    Zambrano is one tough pitcher...........and we knocked him around today!!!!

    Now all we have to do is tighten up that defense, and we might have something.

    I am so pumped. I have not followed a Reds team this closely in possibly 10 or 15 years. Nothing like young players with fire in them to get the fans excited.

    Call me crazy (and I know many will).............but I'm a believer!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm a believer, too! This team could be really special. I've always felt Walt knew how to build a winner and his time here will be no different. Think about the Cardinals that won the Series in 2006...they weren't the best group of players in the league by any measure, but they were the best team. This team reminds me a lot of that Redbirds team. It's still really early but this team has shown some legitimate winning spirit.

    I think this team can be special. But I won't overboard. I could be a year or two before they are really special. They kinda reminds me of the 67 Reds. Young, lots of talent, but maybe not ready to rule the roost. 1970 is coming though.

    I'm skeptical. If we had gotten a proven RH bat like Dye or Mags we would be right there with the Cardinals.

    I'm not that impressed with the Cards yet. I think we have better starting and bullpen pitching than they do. Also, everyone is hot with the bat on the Cards right now, and just as the Reds won't stink at the plate all year, nor will the Cards be this hot. Pitching wins pennants and I think we've got a better staff than them.

    There are too many guys batting below .250 and .200 for me to have much faith in this team. Votto's shoulders are only so big.

    But it's not even May yet.

    I always believe....Haven't any of you seen Angels in the Outfield? "Hey it could Happen." I am like a lot of you though, I get way too excited by the start of the year and get disappointed every summer, but maybe they can at least give us something to watch before Buckeye football rolls around in September....and if that is the case, you have to call them a CONTENDER!

    I have to tell you, I was pleasantly surprised with this series. I thought we'd be incredibly lucky to make it out of Chicago with one win, let alone the series.

    Maybe, just maybe.... I don't dare hope just yet. But maybe.

    Re: Do you believe yet?

    I believe....

    If we don't soak it all in and enjoy the moment now, it might not be here again. So for now, we're right on the brink. I'll be scoreboard watching already this friday and saturday while I'm at Great American hoping for Cardinals losses and a Reds sweep.

    I look at it like right now is our chance to take this league by storm and be the talk of the town. A good strong homestand and continued strong play will have other fans in other cities envying what we have. I've waited a long time for it. I'm hoping that time is now.

    So yes, for right now I believe and it is fun to do so.

    I believe this team could finish over .500, which is progress. Being in contention would be icing on the cake.

    Now, next year....

    I'll be interested to see what happens when teams just start intentionally walking Votto and making the rest of the lineup do something. By my calculations the Reds will never win again.
