While we all seem to root for teams that make us want to claw out our eyes, perhaps you'd be better off rooting for a team that has built for the future through great draft picks and is more exciting than a night as Matt Leinart's wing man.
Of all the young and up-and-coming teams out there, none should be as exciting, surprising and successful (and as quickly) as the Cincinnati Reds.
SI's baseball preview (still one of the best issues all year) has most of the info you need here. But with 26-year-old second baseman Brandon Phillips (30 HR, 94 RBI, 32 SB in '07) and 22-year-old right-hander Johnny Cueto already in the bigs, Reds fans will get a taste of the future now.
And the huge minor-league prospects aren't far behind. You've heard the names: Homer Bailey (21), Joey Votto (24) and Jay Bruce (21, tomorrow. Happy birthday!). Bailey dominated triple-A last season before being unimpressive when called up; Votto hit .321 in 24 games in a Reds jersey and Jay Bruce has the name of a guy who will win an MVP. Expect to see all called up this summer.
