I know not everyone is excited that the long season of baseball is here, but I for one am pumped! Especially after watching the whole Reds game Thursday that they never should have won. They played terrible but just like so many times last season, they had a come from behind win. They were 2nd in the MLB last year with 45 come from behind wins and 22 of those 45 coming in their last at bat. Wins like this mean a lot when the Reds only won the NL Central by 5 games over the threatening St. Louis Cardinals. I’m really excited about this baseball season for some reason because I have a feeling it’s going to be really exciting as a Reds fan.

With a 4-2 win over the Brewers, the Reds are now off to a good start sitting at 2-0. Since the beginning of the 2010 season, the Reds are 9-1 against the Brew Crew at home. Dominance like this doesn’t happen often. The Blue Jays have a similar record at 9-0 at home over the Orioles and the Astros have beat the Pirates in 9 straight at home.
