Sports Illustrated’s first edition of the Power Rankings is out. The Reds rank in at 11th, ahead of Boston and behind the D-Backs.
This is clearly too high for the Reds. They’ve started relatively well (their bullpen didn’t give up an earned run until Sunday) and, because there are no prizes for starting well, we’ll give them No. 11. Might be the closest they get to the Top 10 for a while.
Other notables: The Red Sox are 12th. There are 3 NL West teams in the top 10. The Reds rank as the best team thus far in the NL Central. The Nats are last!
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
