I still think they'll be a productive offense. Donkey and Konerko will still bring some nice pop and production. Viciedo as well. However, AJ shouldn't be relied on for much production at all and Rios will give you an average season in MLB terms, although it looks good for him compared to his awfulness last season. I'd trust their pitching before their hitting to win them games, though.

Why would you trust their pitching before their hitting? They got some suspect pitchers. If their pitching gets shored up, this is a dangerous team. For real.

Despite what I said about Peavy, he's walking less guys than in SD and is maintaining his K rate, along with having a low HR rate (although that'll likely increase once the weather heats up since US Cellular is prone to letting out the longball a bit). I do like Sale, even if he's only going to be able to pitch 150ish innings (idk if they have an inning limit on him). Floyd and Danks should bring their numbers down a bit, Floyd moreso than Danks because his numbers are closer to his career averages aside from the HR rate.

Basically, I expect WS starters to improve a bit while the hitting regresses a bit, balancing things out.

Yeah that's kinda how I see it too. That makes for a pretty solid team overall and the playoffs being pretty realistic.

Pretty sure the Angels have the best defensive OF in baseball when they go Trout/Bourjos/Spiderman.

Yeah they showed it tonight, they were on fire. Loving Frieri atm, he has been dominating.

They're gonna storm back and win the NL Central when Rizzo gets called up. Ok, maybe three years after the call up. Hmmm, maybe four.

Cincinnati fan here, good to see some fellow Reds fans here. I'm happy they seem to be on track after a mediocre start to the season and preseason injuries. The pitching has been pretty good this year with the exception of a few bad games here and there, mostly near the beginning of the season. Hopefully Latos can be more consistent with his starts, but he seems to always have rough starts to the season. Cueto has been awesome this year like I figured he would be, just a couple recent rough starts but can't be amazing every game. I'm glad Arroyo seems to have bounced back after last years HORRENDOUS season, he's healthy this year which is probably why. Homer and Leake are pitching better than they did earlier this year. I am extremely pleased with the bullpen this year, especially considering this players that are injured like Madson and Bray. Always helpful to have an unhittable flame thrower like Chapman to put in as closer along with guys like Ondrusek and Marshall(now that he's back in his familiar role).

The offense has been inconsistent so far, but seem to be improving as the season progresses. One key to the success of the offense is when Bruce is hitting, he's had some extreme highs and extreme lows but that's nothing new in his career so far. Also another key is Stubbs and Cozart getting on base ahead of MVP Votto, other people driving in runs and not just Votto is important too. It is true what they say about good pitching and defense because the Reds are winning games even when they have lackluster hitting at times. It's gonna be a great rest of the season if the success continues, GO REDLEGS!!!

Also would like to add that I would like to personally hunt down and smack the shit out of whoever thought it was a good idea to trade Josh Hamilton to the Rangers, I'm NEVER going to forget that ridiculously stupid trade, imagine a Reds lineup of 1.Stubbs 2.Phillips 3.Hamilton/Votto 4. Hamilton/Votto 5.Bruce 6.Cozart 7.Rolen 8.Meseraco/Hanigan!!!
