Jeff Castner is very encouraged by the recent play of the Cincinnati Reds. They are one of the hottest teams in the National League and they continue to climb towards the top of the division. Though the Reds have been riddled with key injuries, they continue to get major contributions from their bench and find ways to win.

Jeff Castner says the pitching staff continues to be stellar and the key to the Reds’ success. The starting pitching of Cueto, Simon, Baily, Leake and Latos are giving the Reds a chance to win every night. Chapman is usually lights out every time he enters to close a game. Chapman’s much improved change-up has hitters looking silly and guessing at the plate. It’s great to see Cueto, Simon and Chapman being rewarded with All-Star appearances. They have been terrific on the mound.

Jeff Castner still believes the Reds must add a clutch hitter to the middle of the lineup via trade to get them to the top of the division. The injuries to Votto and Phillips will catch up with them if they don’t add a spark to their lineup. Milwaukee, St. Louis and Pittsburgh are not going anywhere and this division will come down to the last few weeks. The Reds must be able to score runs consistently to win the division. The pitching will stay strong, but can the Reds stay consistent at the plate and put runs on the board to stay in the race?

Best of luck to Cueto, Simon, Chapman, Frazier and Mesoraco as they represent the Cincinnati Reds in the All-Star game. They have all played very well midway through the season and deserve to be All Stars. Go Reds!
