Cincinnati Reds fans remain confident in team’s direction

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB! Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged-in fans from each team! Reds fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse!

Another week, another strong show of support from you plugged-in FanPulsers, who continue to have confidence that the Cincinnati Reds are rocketing on the right track.

A solid stretch heading into the All Star break left the Reds just 4.5 games back of both the National League Central lead and the NL’s second Wild Card spot, a position in which the Reds have been nowhere near for the last handful of seasons. Armed with a strong farm and a bevy of movable trade chips, it seems the Reds are also poised to be buyers as they head into the July 31st trade deadline, too, making things quite interesting for the time being.

Big series await, though. 17 of their 25 July games come against NL Central foes, with games against other would-be contenders also populating their schedule. So, no cupcakes for the time being, just chance after chance to separate themselves from the pack.
