Lots of Brewers among the starters and lot of Reds among the reserves, considering that they can’t see to even stay consistently in the top half of the NLC. But that’s the Reds isn’t it? Lots of good pieces, that just aren’t coming together.

I am kind of surprised not to see Johnny Cueto among the pitchers, but that’s typical of the team as well: the good pitchers can’t get any respect.
