Yesterday the Cincinnati Reds took over 1st place in the NL Central by beating the St. Louis Cardinals.
I hope we make it into the play offs this year. Our team looks much improved compared to teams of the last 5 years. It’s way too early to tell with the reds though. I heard this morning on the radio that the Reds have not been in first place for more than 3 years.
So far the biggest surprise of the season for me has been Mike Leake. Is a 22 year old rookie with no minor league experience really the best pitcher on the team right now? I think he may very well be.
