    The keys to the Reds season is the bullpen, last year the Reds relievers compiled a 5.72 ERA (second worst in the majors), this needs to improve dramatically. Also, they need to get solid outings from Eric Milton and Ramon Ortiz, their pitching staff is a revolving door.

    They can hit and score runs with just about anyone when Griffey Jr. is healthy, so once again the key will be to keep him healthy.

    The Reds will be in contention for the wild card come late August...The cancer (Larkin) is gone, the bully has been improved and the rotation is servicable given the offense that will back them up.

    The Cardinals will win the division going away...but the Reds will hold their own with the Astros and Cubs.
  3. I don't agree with this statement. He was one of the classiest guys in cincy. He was always a team player and a leader in the clubhouse as well as on the field!

    he was so classy that the organization couldn't wait to push him out the door...:roll2:

    More people in Cincinnati feel he was bad for the organization and the clubhouse then feel he was good for them. He went on a crusade and hamstrung the Reds with 27 million in pay roll the last three years at a time when the Reds needed a pitcher. he bitched to play for a contender and the Reds orchestrated a trade to the Mets, who were in contention at the time, and he vetoed the trade...he ripped the 'C' off of his chest and acted like a baby when the team cut pay roll...he ended one season by leaving the game in the fourth inning to catch a flight back to his home...IN ORLANDO...he has not given back to the Cincinnati community (he has opened several HIGH PRICE baseball academies in plush areas of cincy) and he no longer makes his home in his birth city...and hasn't for decades. He is a pampered cry baby who hid in the corner in 1999 and watched as Greg Vaughn took over the leadership role for the Reds. Is it a coincidence that the Reds were in contention that year?
    And to top it all off, Barely Larkin is a scUM grad.

    Trust me, people here know about the cancer he was and most of us are truly glad he is gone.

    yes, he is a scUM grad. The Reds drafted him out of Moeller and he decided to go to TSUN. The Reds drafted him again three years later.
