Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory!

Post  Cincy Fan 44 on Thu May 14, 2009 11:36 pm

Reds are actually tied for 1st place halfway thru May! cheers

Man are they playing good baseball right now. Starting pitching is rock solid, the hitting is coming around, and the bullpen has been very good too. I hate to say it b/c I really liked them, but this team is actually better without Dunn & Griffey. They hustle (especially that Rosales guy) too!

Go Reds!

You can definately see Walk Jocketty putting his stamp on the team. I agree they are better off without Griffey and Dunn. Griffey's heart was no longer with Cincinnati and Dunn was a defensive nightmare. I'm still cautious about this season though. Let's win 81 games and then everything is gravy after that.

Don't settle for 81 Kroman. That's accepting mediocrity...Raise the bar of expectation to 95 wins and pray that will be enough to win this division...

I can see where you're coming from though. For this organization to not have a winning season since 2000 is pathetic. What is it they say about Rupp Arena? "We don't hang anything but championship banners here..." (For you Cubs fans, those are the banners that are hung when your team wins the World Series. Razz )

And here we Cub fans had reason to look forward to another year of suckiness for the Reds. Well, there's still time.

Had to laugh at that article. It's amazing that going into the season, most would have agreed that the Reds would suck.

However, some funny things happened along the way. Joey Votto is tearing the cover off the ball. Johnny Cueto looks like Bob Gibson. Willy Taveras has been outstanding as the leadoff hitter -- something the Reds have lacked for a long time. Edinson Volquez is proving that last year was no fluke. The bullpen has been razor-sharp.

I guess that's why they play the games...

Ah yes, with a starting pitching staff like this, it will be difficult for this team to go into a prolonged tailspin.
