Blog Red Machine's 2013 Preview: Introduction

Welcome to Blog Red Machine’s 2013 National League Central Preview. Over the next month, the entire BRM
staff will provide you with a look at each position, each NL Central team and a deeper look at the Cincinnati Reds.

Beginning tomorrow, I will rank the National League Central catching position. Over the next two week, a different writer, a different position. After we cover all the positions, we will provide our preview of each team within the NL Central and the top prospects within the division.

The week prior to Opening Day, we will begin our Reds preview. The BRM staff will scan the Reds roster for the infield, outfield, starters and relievers. BRM’s top prospect list for 2013 will also debut during this week. On Opening Day, we will recap all and reveal each writer’s prediction for the NLC for 2013.

I know Reds fans are anxious to get the 2013 season underway due to the “unfinished business” of 2012. Fans are also anxious to talk about the 2013 Reds. With that, I would like to encourage each and every one of you to participate thorough our comments section. Signing up for Disqus takes little time and I feel it’s the best commenting system we have had here on BRM.

A couple of other additions for the 2013 season:

BRM will be rolling out liveblogs for each game.  This is a new feature for us at BRM and we are anxious to have the opportunity to “chat” with other Reds fans about the game action and other issues surrounding our Redlegs.

We will also have the stats not only for the Reds (which can be found be clicking “Standings/Stats” on the menu bar), but for all the Reds minor league affiliates this year.  Each affiliate will have it’s own page.  Hover over “The Farm” on the menu bar and the list will appear.  Simply click on the team and you’re set.  Each team page also contains a link to the team’s website, Twitter and Facebook page (where applicable).

If at any time you’re unsure of where we are at in our preview “process”, head here, bookmark the page and you’re all set for the 2013 season.

So…sit back, relax and check  BRM daily for your look at the NL Central and the Reds for 2013.
