Know Your Enemy – Cincinnati Reds

This is the fifth in a series of 5 articles that will try to get Pirate fans inside the organizations of the Pirates' NL Central opponents.  I explained the rationale behind these articles here and previously reviewed the Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs , Milwaukee Brewers, and the Saint Louis Cardinals.

This final article will look at the rising power in Pittsburgh's sister city, the Cincinnati Reds.  I expect the battle that is going on between the Reds and the Cards this season to continue for the next few years.  Cincinnati is a scary team in terms of talent and the low salaries that talent will be making.  This will enable them to add whatever they may need in free agency.
