So is the consensus that the Reds are a better team because of Mackanin? I'm kind of leaning towards regression to the mean myself. I'm not sure the Reds were ever as bad as their record indicated, but I still don't think this is a very good team. I'm also not thrilled with the way Encarnacion and Dunn have been used under Mackanin, but the guy does seem to have a plan, which isn't something I could have said about Narron ever.
What are you guys thinking? And do you think this little run will change anything for Krivsky as we get closer to the deadline?
