7 Reasons to Be Optimistic for the Cincinnati Reds' 2014 Season
Al Behrman

The Cincinnati Reds kicked off their 2014 season March 31 with a rough game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The team lost 1-0, and the offense was shut down by the Cardinals ace, Adam Wainwright.

Fans took to social media, and a firestorm of complaining ensued, most of it aimed at 23-year-old rookie Billy Hamilton. Don't fret though, Reds fans, this wouldn't be the first time a team was shut out by Wainwright, and it certainly won't be the last.

In addition to that, there were some positives to take from that game, and in addition to those positives, there are quite a few reasons to be optimistic for the upcoming season.

So, to try and get you all back on the optimist's bandwagon, here are seven reasons why Reds fans should be optimistic for the team's 2014 season.
