Is It Still Too Early To Believe?

Yes, it's way too early. But the direction of this team has many signs pointing upward. The starting pitching and most of the relief pitching is reason to believe. The new-found ability to come up with the right hit at the right time is reason to believe. Joey Votto is reason to believe. A charged up attitude with an infusion of youthful leadership in the every day lineup is reason to believe. But before it's all said and done, they may need that big bat in the cleanup spot to hang in for the long haul. Still, the road trip was impressive. The Reds just finished off the 10 game trip with a 7-3 record, marching through Milwaukee, Houston, and Chicago. All three are central division foes. The Reds won all 3 series, taking 2 out of 3 from the Brewers, 3 out of 4 from the Astros, and 2 out of 3 from the Cubs. I do believe that road trip was more impressive than anything I've seen out of this team in quite some time.
