Matt’s Take – Reds approaching .500

0

Just like the Undertaker would come out of the casket, the Cincinnati Reds are back from the dead and approaching .500 baseball. At 32-34, they are currently in a Wild Card playoff spot, but have eyes on still winning the National League Central. It is very much still in play and with a road trip against the Brewers approaching this weekend, the most important series of the season thus far is about to begin. In 2023, Cincinnati lost 10 of 13 to Milwaukee and in 2022, Cincinnati lost 15 of 19 against the Brewers. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of losing to the Brew Crew and now is the time to change the narrative. You simply cannot win the Central with this type of play against a divisional opponent and now is the time to make up ground. At 6.5 games back, Cincinnati just needs to remain hot and continue to put up runs, as the pitching will take care of itself. The Reds are back and I am eager to see this team continue to build on their momentum.

Matt’s Take – June will decide the remainder of the season

0

As we all know, May was a horrific month of baseball for this Reds team, as Cincinnati finished the month with a record of 11-18. Their overall record now sits at 26-33 and things have finally started to look a bit brighter. The sweep over the Dodgers, the recent series victory over the Cubs, and our pitching continuing to keep us in games and gives the Reds hope that they can right this ship before the end of June. Should they fall apart in June and repeat another bad month of baseball, they will certainly be out of the race and possibly be sellers at the deadline. That’s not going to happen though, as I truly believe the Reds win this Rockies series and the Cubs series this weekend, which should get us to 31-35 roughly. While the Reds are far out from the top spot in the NL Central, they are just 3 games back from a Wild Card spot, as the NL Wild Card is wide open. By the end of June, I expect Cincinnati to currently be in a Wild Card spot, as they have a much easier schedule this month.

MLB catchers hitting better than ever

0

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Slowed by stiff knees and bruised by foul balls and backswings, major league catchers have long been defined by what they do defensively — even if it hinders them on offense. Perhaps because of the universal designated hitter and strategic changes like one-knee squatting, that might be changing.
