The Reds will come crashing down to Earth ... they are this year's Orioles. A team that streaks early, an peters out by season's end. Or this season's Nationals, if you prefer an NL reference. Here's why...
1) Pitching from STL and HOU will get better, and win it does, the wins will come back. And if the Astros sign Clem, you better believe that will make a difference.
2) Batters streak ... and it's mid-May. EE and Phillips are streaking. Will they keep at that rate? I admit it's possible. It's happend before. But it probably won't.
3) The Reds pitching, while improved with Arroyo, is still weak in the bullpen. And as the season continues, that will show itself more and more.
That being said, I would like to see the Reds do well. But I just don't see it happening.
The lightside shall prevail...
Oh, and go Dodgers!
