    As of today, the Reds are ranked 20th best team in baseball...

    ...according to ESPN staff writer Bradford Doolittle.

    It's paid content, so I'll only include the snippet about the Reds. But the Cards, Cubs, and Brewers all rank higher according to Doolittle, even after the offseason moves thus far.

    20. Cincinnati Reds

    POWER RATING: 79.3
    WIN FORECAST: 79.0 | CHANGE : +4.0
    DIVISION%: 13.7 | PLAYOFF%: 20.0
    PENNANT%: 2.3 | TITLE%: 0.7
    UNIT RANKINGS: NeuRS: 19 (25) | NeuRA: 7 (9) | Def: 15 (8)


    Speaking of upside-down teams: The Reds finally have an enviable pitching operation but need a lackluster offensive group to get better for Cincinnati to truly contend in a highly winnable division. If I'm a Reds fan, my fantasy is for Joey Votto to bounce back with one more MVP-level season to lead a resurgent attack. That might not be realistic, but Votto should at the very least continue to get on base. Newly signed Japanese outfielder Shogo Akiyama isn't a likely star -- he'll be 32 in April -- but he should be another good OBP source. What would really help is a breakout season from Nick Senzel.
