Out of all the teams in the postseason, the Cincinnati Reds are the most complete and well-balanced.
The pitching, which has been a weakness of the team for at least the last decade, has turned into a strength.
The bullpen has the lowest ERA in the majors at 2.66, which is the main reason they should be the favorites to win the Fall Classic this year.
But it's not just the bullpen.
They have three legitimate starters in Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos and Homer Bailey, all of whom possess the ability to shut down opposing offenses.
And don't forget about the lineup that has names like Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce.
What the Reds need to do is put runs on the board early and have a lead by the sixth inning. Then Dusty Baker can turn the game over to his bullpen and let them take care of the rest.
Balance is a key feature for a team to have in the playoffs because when something is going wrong, the team can find another way to win.
That's exactly what the Reds are capable of doing.
