The biggest issue right now is the injuries to the starting pitchers. The Reds score a lot of runs, their offense is dynamic.

I liked the memorial day military themed camo accented uniforms the Reds and the Phillies was wearing this evening. Army green hats with Army style camo bill. Grey uniforms with Army green accented lettering, Army camo socks with Beige baseball cleats. Very cool looking.

The Central is terrifically awful this year, so no loss is too bad at this point. Still only 2.5 games out, which is borderline crazy to think about.

The central is surprising how bad it is when I first thought about it, but the Cards lost most of their big names. The Reds, Brewers and Pirates are young and the Cubs haven't been real good yet, everyone thought they would run away from everyone this year and they haven't come close to doing that. Unfortunately, I still see the Cubs eventually running away from everyone at some point.

As a Cubs fan, I hope you're right. The starting pitching has been awful, but it is doubtful that their struggles with RISP will keep up. On the 0-6 West Coast trip, the Cubs went 3-40 with RISP lol

Crazy! lol it seems that things click for the Cubs about half the time, when things do click, they are very good. For the Reds, nobody is questioning their offense I don't think, their offense is quite dominant, we'll see what happens when their starting pitchers become healthy again.

Cozart has been one of the best players in baseball so far this season. Either trade now (or soon) when the time is right or try to sign him to a team friendly deal in case something has clicked.

With him being in his 31 year old season, he probably is at his peak and has 2-3 more really solid years left as a SS...but it also means that his value will probably never be higher.

They have 3 All Stars for sure at this point. Cozart, Iglesias, and Votto. Good sweep of the Cardinals.

Schebler might be an all-star this year as well, he's tied with Harper for the most home runs in the NL.

Get George Grande off the games! I thought he retired a decade ago!
I am sick of him calling warning track fly balls when the left fielder catches it right behind shortstop. :lol:

He's 10x better than Thom though. You can tell a major difference between Chris Welsh when Thom is on the game (extremely bitter and negative) and when Grande is on them (informative and a better tone)

Who is the next NL Central team that has to go through the West coast Murderer's Row in LA and San Diego? That's twice in the last 3 weeks that a Central team has gone 0-6 out there.

I don't think so, there isn't much he can do about not having any starting pitching.

Price is terrible, and doesn't look like this team cares half the time. Hell it looked like Votto was trying to dance at the plate on a pitch that was clearly a strike on the upper inside of the plate.
