Re: Gonelong's 7th annual Season W/L prediction thread ...
I'd like to defer until the fringes of the roster are settled (and more importantly whether Votto starts at 1B), but where is the fun in that?
76 wins. This bullpen could be horrific again with the wrong decisions/usage patterns, the offense--after park adjustment--will be below average even with a boost from EE, and improvement from the starting pitching won't be quite enough. There are too many bad pitchers on the staff (Stanton, Fogg, Affeldt) getting innings and Cueto and Volquez can't be expected to pick up all of those guys' slack.
I agree with the earlier sentiment: if Dunn or Harang miss any time whatsoever the wheels could come off.
