Few experts were picking the Reds to win the division this year. I think there was one guy for the New York Times that did. I wanted to pick them, but really thought a good goal for this season would be to have a winning record. The Reds haven't had a winning record since 2000, when they went 85-77, Jr.'s last super star season.
With the win last night, the Reds clinch a non-losing record of at least .500. No doubt they'll win again (hopefully today) and will finish with a winning record. To me, the division championship is enough for Dusty to come back as manager. With the young talent the Reds have, I don't think just a winning record would have been enough.
