Re: 2007 predictions!!!
Harang and Arroyo will anchor the rotation, backed with a solid, yet unspectacular bullpen. Unfortunately, the three, four, and five slots in the rotation will be stitched together all year, with Milton and Lohse spending chunks of time on the DL, and pitching poorly when in the lineup. The fifth spot will be a potpourri of guys like Michalak.
Adam Dunn will continue to take called third strikes with runners in scoring position and less than two outs.
Scott Hatterberg will be solid all year, as will the catching duo as will the shortstop position.
Brandon Phillips will continue to gel into a legitimate star, as will Edwin E.
Ryan Freel will have MVP-type months in April and May, but will then cool off.
Griffey will be on the trading block, but no one will want him, and Jim Bowden will continue to snicker about how he screwed the Reds for years to come.
