Another sad day in baseball

I am not going to write too much about this because to tell you the honest truth I am still shocked and confused. Ryan Braun, the National League MVP tested positive for PEDs and is now trying to fight it. With this news, as a Reds fan it makes me wonder how well they will do in 2012. Now that Prince Fielder will not be on that team and Ryan Braun will be facing a 50 game suspension along with Albert Pujols being traded away from St. Louis Cardinals and Tony LaRussa retiring. Do people actually believe the Breweres and Cardinals will do well without the people who really helped them a lot in 2011? The Reds will not have Francisco Cordero or Ramon Hernandez but even with not making any moves at all this offseason they are still sitting in better shape. I predict the Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates to do well in the Central now.
