Have some fun here, don't need to explain why you can just post your prediction.

Current record in May: 7-4

Remaining Games:

14-16 vs STL (2-1)
17-18 vs MIL (2-0)
19-20 @ ATl (1-1)
21-23 @ CLE (3-0)
24-27 vs PIT (2-2)
28-30 vs HOU (2-1)
31 @ STL (0-1)

Record for remaining games: 12-6

Finishing record: 31-21

Honestly looking at this schedule this record is very realistic IMO, as long as we take 2 of 3 from STL this weekend I think this team will keep playing great baseball.

At the end of May we will be somewhere in between 9-11 games over .500

Ya i think we can be somewhere in that area. We need to finish this month strong because june will be a tough month schedule wise.

This all seriously falls on what team shows to play this weekend.

But i will play along.

14-16 vs STL (2-1)
17-18 vs MIL (1-1)
19-20 @ ATl (2-0)
21-23 @ CLE (3-0)
24-27 vs PIT (3-1)
28-30 vs HOU (2-1)
31 @ STL (0-1)

13-5

The good thing about the rest of may. Even if we do bomb vs the cards. I can see us climbing back up quickly as long as this team keeps the spirit up which i think they will.

I am going to go with...

14-16 vs STL (2-1)
17-18 vs MIL (1-1)
19-20 @ ATl (1-1)
21-23 @ CLE (2-1)
24-27 vs PIT (3-1)
28-30 vs HOU (2-1)
31 @ STL (0-1)

I am going to go with 11-7. Don't want to get too greedy, a lot will depend on this weekend. If we go 2-1 this weekend I think 11,12,13 wins are all realistic possibilities. If we go 1-2 or 0-3. We are probably looking at 9-9 or worse...but losing this series is not an option. So I am firm with 11-7.

9-9 would be pretty darn terrible.

I see that these are records if the Reds when the series this weekend, but lets say (god forbid lol) the Reds drop 2 to the cards, what do you think the rest of may would look like then?:confused:

We need, and should win 18-20 games this month. This is our chance to put ourselves amongst the NL elite. Outside of the 5 games with the Cards, the schedule is pretty easy. June isn't as easy but I think we can string together some wins.

I made my prediction about a week ago.

I'll have to find it.

Good job on Pujols this series. The hit on Friday is pretty much all he has had.

I made my prediction about a week ago.

I'll have to find it.

Here was my prediction I posted May 10th (with one change about the "one day off" where I had put "no days off"):

With the Offense on track, the Starting Pitching on Track, and guys like Cordero, Rhodes, Owings and Herrera to anchor the bullpen, there's no reason the REDS can't continue the .692 pace they've been on over their last 13 games.

They should be able to continue to play at the .692 pace through May 30th as they prepare for another showdown at St. Louis with the Cardinal May 30th-June 2nd. There are 20 games between now and then with 7 of them against the Pirates and 3 against the Astros. Toss in 3 against Cleveland and two against Atlanta and 15 of those 20 games are against teams playing at a combined .393 clip. The remaining 5 games are all at home....3 against the Cards and 2 versus Milwaukee, who are currently under .500.

If we do play at a .692 clip over these next 20 games (14-6), our record will be 30-21 heading into St. Louis, 9 games above .500. The Cardinals are currently 8 games above .500.

There is one day off between now and then. The next day off will be June 3rd, the day after the series where we'll likely be playing for 1st place in the National League Central Division.

Then there's a 10-game homestand June 7th-June 17th. The REDS could have their biggest attendance month (per average game) in a long time with school being out, great weather, and a 1st place club. They close out June with 6 straight home games including 3 against Cleveland.

It's good to be a REDS' fan right now, especially if you're lucky enough to live within driving distance to their games.

Then, Dickerson will be back, Chapman will be a hot topic, and there may be another Minor Leaguer or two who are trying to force their way onto the club. And, then there are the contracts/trade possibilities of Harang and Arroyo to consider.

This is going to be a lot of fun.

30-21 it is, and a 1-game lead over the Cardinals going into a 3-game series in St. Louis playing for 1st Place in the Central Division.
