In terms of my choices, some of them could probably use a bit of clarification. For instance, though many of you know that I think Matt Holliday is a great player, I think the Cardinals signed him for far too much money since there were no other serious competitors in the bidding for his services (according to various reports). In terms of my Reds pick for the NL Wild Card, I figured I might as well throw something random out there. They’re an improved club, so why not?
