People are starting to come around

I have noticed lately that people are starting to realize that Cincinnati Reds have a pretty good team this offseason. Especially after all of the moves that they have made. I think it is starting to sink in for some that St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers will have a lot more challenges this season then they did in 2011 and that the Reds are better equipped as they head into Spring Training. I personally can not wait until the start of the season. With everything that has happened this offseason, it will be very interesting to see what teams do well and which ones suffer. Will the National League be in trouble now that Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder are gone? Will Joey Votto be a lock for 1B in every all-star game for many years to come now? Will Reds fans finally realize that the Josh Hamilton trade was actually a good move by the Reds? Ha ha, the last one I just had to throw in there. I just read today that Hamilton had a relapse with alcohol and that he is still looking for a new buddy to help him stay sober for this new season. [Source – ESPN]

    You can put me in that category. I didn’t REALLY like what the Reds did this offseason, but I do have them winning the division in 2013 and being a definite runner for the 2012 crown. The only thing is I don’t think Mat Latos will be that amazing this year, because his move backwards was because of overuse and it usually takes a couple years to get back to full form from that. The first of those couple years being last year and the second being 2012.

      I am hoping Mat Latos will at least put up good numbers and with a bullpen like they have now it should not be to hard for any of the starters they have. It will be interesting to see how everything works out.
