CINCINNATI REDS: With the Bengals blowing their playoff game against the Jets, local sports fans thought they'd spend the long, cold months of winter grumbling over their Hudepohls. Instead, Reds management gave them something to be happy about with the signing of Cuban pitcher Aroldis Chapman.

Joey Votto's problem for the last month was a deficiency in the resources athletes can often tap to beat aches, pains and pulls. He's struggled with dizziness after an inner ear infection and flu limited him to three full games in a 17-game stretch last month. The Reds put Votto on the 15-day disabled list May 31 due to "stress-related" issues. Addressing whether the ear infection is involved, General Manager Walt Jocketty told reporters, "It's partly that. Let’s leave it at that."

What's always impressed me about Cincinnati, as someone who didn't grow up here, is how the whole city embraces baseball and the Reds on Opening Day. It's another of those small ways that locals have stubbornly held on to a collective individuality, as quirky as three-way chili and "Please?" Baseball is the only American sport with any romance, so it's not surprising that Cincinnatians bond with the Reds.

The Reds are a young, talented club with big upside in a couple years. They're the envy of many clubs for their young pitching, which could become dominating. They have a couple of young, left-handed hitters to replace the old ones they let go.

More than once during his 16 years coaching the University of Cincinnati basketball team, Bob Huggins remarked that the Bearcats are written off locally before they're written off nationally.

Bob Castellini went on the radio a couple weeks ago to clarify that he is, indeed, excited about the upcoming Reds season. And who isn't? The Reds season is baseball season, after all.
