The Reds got a series win over St. Louis this weeked while the struggled after winning the opener at Wriglley Field. These are the two worst team in the NL Central this season.
Pittsburg took the opener against the Cubs so their series was not a total disaster. They then dropped the next two games and lost top prospect Ke’Bryan Hayes in the process. He is probably already their best hitter, which says a lot about where the team is at right now.
JT Brubaker broke into the Majors last season and on this team he should have a great shot to stick in the rotation to see if he has what it takes. Some are high on his potential but I am not there quite yet. Taming the Reds is very possible though.
The Bucs bullpen has looked pretty good so far. They are not going to be the reason the team fails this season.
Cincinnati looks a little directionless coming into the season. They have enough talent to compete most nights, especially when their aces are on the mound. They took two of three against the Cardinals to start the season. That is promising. The offense came alive the last couple of games, scoring 21 runs.
Jose De Leon has great stuff but he is going to have to harness it more if we want to keep his spot in the rotation. It seems like he might be better-suited to a relief role where he can air it out instead of working the lineup. We will see how that comes together.
The bullpen has a familiar face in Sean Doolittle. This group is probably not as good as it was a couple of years ago.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
This one feels like more of a pick’em so I think it makes more sense to grab some extra value with the Bucs. Both of these pitchers are wild cards so why not, it is early in the season and with these teams we really can’t say we know what they are yet.
