Thats a .800 winning percentage.Unheard of in MLB but I get your point.We can be very good this season if things fall they way the Reds have planed for them to fall.
It is still very early and we have all seen the Reds get off to better starts that have lasted up to or close to the All Star break only to see things fall apart.The 1 difference is that this team can do it with pitching.When pitching is good a team can survive a cold spell from the offense where the team is only scoring 2 or 3 runs over a 10-15 game span.When this has happened in the the past the team would loose every game for to weeks and I would find myself looking to see when the NFL started.I'd say with our staff this season we could probably pull out half of those games.It's very important to avoid the 7-10 game loosing steaks that have doomed this team in past years.
If the bullpen can continue what they are doing and the rotation can live up to its potential then I could see this team possibly winning 3 out of every 5 the rest of the way.
