I'm trying not get hopes up yet. I will say this though. Our division isn't very good so staying around .500 could make for an interesting summer.

Going 6-3 on a trip through Milwaukee, Detroit and Minnesota? Did not see that coming and very happy with results ...

But after hearing the Reds announcers after the series with us you would have thought they were already printing World Series tickets.lol

Yep. Baseball is amazing that way. MLB channel announcer was saying after the first 10 days of the season that the A's slow start was probably not something they could overcome.

Until they win 13 in a row and take over first place, I mean.

Reds fans April 8: "Reds are so awesome, yes, our pitching is not great, I mean Wade Miley? But that OFFENSE!"

Two weeks later ... "Oh my God, this pitching sucks, we will finish last!"

It will all come down to pitching. Who knows how 2021 will be after a 60 game season. Will the arms be fresh from the time off? Will they not be stretched out enough for a 162 game workload?

It seems everyone is expecting to use lots of arms.
