Consider This: Reds won't be as bad as you think

FOX19 -

Ok, it’s just one game. But, it only took one swing in that one game to make a statement about this upcoming Reds season.  And, that is, this team isn't as bad as some people want you to think. 

If you were watching, you saw a fantastic 8th and 9th inning of that first game.  And, you probably recognized a lot of the people playing for the Reds.
     
USA Today predicted the re-building Reds would lose 101 games this year. That without players like Frazier, Chapman and Cueto, Cincinnati would finish with the worst record in baseball. 
      
But, with his go-ahead hit on Opening Day,  #19 Joey Votto—a  name we all know very well—reminded us that this team can still play winning baseball. That, there are still four All-Star players in the Reds everyday line-up.

Consider this - only once in the history of baseball's oldest franchise did the Reds lose a hundred games. Just once in a hundred-and-forty years.  We don't want to bash USA Today—but it sounds like the people predicting this group will lose 101 needs a lesson in History 101.
