Walt needs to read a St. Louis blog article to figure out that the Cardinals are a good team that will be in the race?
Riveting stuff. Simply riveting.
who said we are good tho?
Panicking is for losers. I could list off the stuff that's gone wrong for the Reds, too. As injury-plagued and underperforming as the rotation has been, they could easily be ten games back instead of two.
FIRE DUSTY Never mind. The man is clearly a genius.
The Cards are not the only team to encounter difficulties. Lets see:
Cueto and Bailey start the season on the DL.
Bailey hits the DL a second time.
Rolen has missed significant time.
Gomes was imagineably bad for an extended period of time.
Chapman has been in the minors with a "shoulder ailment".
The Reds get the Yankees and the Red Sox, the Cards get neither.
The Reds got the Indians when they were on fire.
It's a marathon not a sprint and there was no guarentee the Reds would repeat. They still might, they might not.
Berkman has been a life saver. I don't think many people expected that.
The Brewers went for it, knowing Fielder most likely will not return.
The Reds are still deciding (I think) whether they should cash in their minor league chips and go for it or stay patient and try to win with what they've got.
