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.

Saw Scooter is now the first player in MLB history to have 4 home runs, 5 hits and 10 RBI in a single game.

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.
