Cincinnati Reds Baseball Hats, Jerseys, Apparel
The Reds won the NL Central division at 97-65 in 2012. In 2012 the Reds also locked up Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips to a long term deal which is huge for the future. The 2013 Reds team will be most baseball analysts picks to win the NL Central again. Looking at this Reds paper on paper scoring runs should come easy especially in hitter friendly Great American Ballpark. But in any big league ball park players like Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, Shin-Soo Choo, Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier will score runs. The question on paper is can the pitching hold up. Assuming Aroldis Chapman stays in the bullpen you are looking at a projected starting five of Cueto, Arroyo, Latos, Bailey and Leake. Sure it is not that bad, but on this team on paper I believe that is the weak link but the Reds should go on to win the NL Central once again in 2013.
2012 Reds Season Record:
Overall: 97-65
vs NL Cent: 49-30


BA Brandon Phillips .281
HR J. Bruce 34
RBI J. Bruce 99
R J. Bruce 89
OPS J. Bruce .841
ERA J. Cueto 2.78
W J. Cueto 19
SO M. Latos 185
SV A. Chapman 38
WHIP M. Latos 1.16

The Big Move for 2013
The Reds won the National League Central last season without a true leadoff hitter and they feel like they found the solution by obtaining outfielder Shin Soo Choo from Cleveland in a trade. Choo, who will be asked to move from right field to center field, hit .283 with 16 home runs, 21 stolen bases and an outstanding .373 on base percentage in 155 games last year.

Reds Top Prospects

Best Pitcher - Tony Cingrani - LHP
