MLB Playoffs: Are the Cincinnati Reds the NL Favorite to go to the World Series?
The Cincinnati Reds were the first team in the major leagues to lock up a postseason spot. Clinching the NL Central crown for the second time in the last three years. The fact that the Reds were the first time to make it to the postseason comes with little surprise. They had been pulling away with the division for the last month and a half.
Now that the Reds are for sure in the playoffs, are they the National League favorite to make it all the way to the World Series?
The last time they were in the playoffs, the Reds ran into Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies. The Reds would be swept in three games. One of the games Halladay threw the second no-hitter in postseason history.
