Reds Analysis: Looking to make to the postseason

The Reds are a youthful squad that is constructing for the future, just like their rivals in the opposing dugout. Nevertheless, Cincinnati has advanced significantly in its growth thus far. The Reds, who finished over .500 (82-80) the year after dropping 100 games, fought for a playoff position right up until the last week of 2023. The Queen City is excited about the noticeable improvement, especially since the organization added depth and strengthened its starting rotation during the offseason. The righty Montas, who is scheduled to start his third Opening Day game, will serve as the pitcher Cincinnati turns to on Thursday. The 31-year-old was signed to a one-year, $16 million contract by the Reds after he was acquired via free agency. He had previously pitched for Oakland and New York. In an attempt to strengthen the lineup that also included 3B Jeimer Candelario, SP Nick Martinez, and RP Emilio Pagán, Montas was acquired for more than $100 million.


Nationals Analysis: Busy in free agency

As the team prepares for the future, progress rather than victories will be used to gauge the Nationals’ 2024 season’s success. Leading players in Washington’s young core include SS C.J. Abrams and SP Josiah Gray, who will play on Thursday. Along with these additions, the team made some noise in the offseason, bringing in Joey Gallo, Nick Senzel, Matt Barnes, Eddie Rosario, and Jesse Winker. There’s reason to think the Nationals can expand on their 16-win increase from 2022 last year, even though it might not be sufficient for reaching the playoffs in a division as stacked as the NL East. Gray will receive the ball from Washington in Cincinnati tomorrow. In 2023, the 26-year-old righty showed improvement, cutting his ERA by more than a run. In 30 starts (159.0 IP), he recorded a 3.91 ERA as well as 1.46 WHIP with 143 strikeouts. Stay tuned for more articles with more baseball analysis.
