R-E-S-P-E-C-T, that's what power rankings mean to me

The Reds come in at number 4 in this weeks ESPN power rankings. It's about time.

On a sort of related note, the Reds no longer lead the Majors in runs scored. That honor goes to the Cleveland Indians, who have scored 189 to Cincy's 165, and the hated Yanks are right on the Reds heels at 161. So, let's score 20 tonight against a team that should never have existed in the first place. We'll make up the rest tomorrow.

The Nats, sadly, are ranked at number 28, just ahead of the Pirates and Royals. Not good company to be in. What does ESPN have to say about that?
The Nats host the Pirates in a three-game series this weekend. Yes, it'll be snooze time at RFK.
I'll be there, anyway, rooting on the last place Nats with my new Crud Light Nats cap.

Poor Nats. We're absolutely, positively, pathetic.

Can't wait for the new digs in 2008 though. Having an ownership group can only help us.
