I grew up a Reds fan. That means I have seen the Reds win lots of games and lose even more. My hey day as a baseball fan was in the 80s. The Reds sucked, but I loved them anyway. One didn’t wonder whether the Reds had won or lost. Instead, you asked whether Bench hit a pinch hit HR or how many strike outs Mario Soto had.
With such a record of success, I have learned to be very suspicious of a good start by the Reds. I’ve seen many Reds teams race out of the gate only to falter in the stretch. Still, to be this strong in mid-June is pretty good for the Reds. I just hope the rest of the NL Central lives up to its reputation and hides for the rest of the season.
