These are two teams that have to be very pleased with what they have been able to do so far. Expectations were pretty low in both markets coming into the season.
The Reds started off red hot, rattling off five wins in their first six games, That was primarily due to some really good offense. Even after getting shut out yesterday they are still tops in the league averaging more than seven runs per game.
I am not a Wade Miley fan but so far so good. His lone start was close to a gem with just two hits allowed over six innings. He struck out six too which was impressive for him.
The bullpen has been solid but not great. They probably need that group to keep improving and before long Sean Doolittle will be the closer I think.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants have the same record as the Reds but are doing it differently. They are not scoring a ton but they have the second-best ERA in the league early on. Evan Longoria is one of the bats that is actually performing but I am not sure how much we can count on him. He has not been aging gracefully with the Giants.
Aaron Sanchez has talent and won an ERA title with the Jays about five years ago. HIs first outing with his latest team was a good one, just one allowed and no walks.
The bullpen has been fantastic, especially Jake McGee as the new closer. If that unit holds up for the season they could hang in this thing longer than expected.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
I am more inclined to back Sanchez than Miley. It might be a bit of a bias from his Toronto days but he can be really good and maybe the Giants have found something.
Fading Miley is easy for me. I have never been much of a fan.
