Reds fans are certainly excited right now, and they have good reason to be.
The Reds lost 100 games last season and finished tied for last place in the division with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
But this year, the Reds have outperformed their expectations and now appear to be one of the great success stories of the 2023 season.
After losing 100 games, not much was expected of the Reds.
However, they have been led by young stars such as Elly De La Cruz, Jonathan India, Spencer Steer, Matt McClain, Hunter Greene, Andrew Abbott, and Ben Lively.
The Reds last won the NL Central in 2012.
That year, they ran away with the division by finishing nine games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals.
11 years later, the Reds are looking to bounce back from a tough season and give their fans something to cheer about.
As of now, there are a lot of things for Reds fans to be excited about, and this young core could help take the team to the next level.NEXT: Joey Votto Had A Pure Reaction Upon His Return
