Bill Lack and I sat down once again for a wide-ranging discussion of the current state of the Cincinnati Reds. The first question: as things stand now, am I too excited about the Reds? We talked about whether the good performance of the pitching staff is sustainable, and dive into David Bell’s managerial tactics once again. Finally: #ViewerMail, and we have some good questions from you this time.

We also analyzed the Final Four matchups in RNR Madness, and we move on to the championship matchup. Who is the most valuable player in Reds history?

    Great listen as usual guys. Thank you for taking the time to do this. I think it was a three man race for most valuable red and everyone else was just happy to be there. I do not think you can go wrong with Bench, Robinson or Morgan and can make arguments for all three.

    This is indeed a very entertaining Reds team. Tommy Lasorda, while manager, said the key to winning championships was to “play even with the big guys, beat up on the little guys.” The only problem with this Reds team is being in the Central division, series after series with big guys. They are playing even. Their two series with little guys, they swept the Marlins, and Giants (won 4 of 6). They just need to get out of the Central division. Too many big guys, but they are playing even. It is a good team, entertaining for sure.
