Not only are the REDS seen as a 76 win team, but they're also projected to finish a distant Fifth for their chances to win the Division.
Considering the Reds did very little to improve themselves I don't think that projecton is too far off. The Reds pretty much kept what they had and that's it other than adding a slick-fielding shortstop and some pitching projects. I may sound like a broken record but with the Reds finishing with a -50 run differential they should've been, ironically 76-86 last year. For a team that added no big chips I don't see how this team can make up 50 runs to put them at .500. I'm sure it hurts some fans, but I think this booking agency is right on.
