Big super bold prediction I know haha, but if it plays out where he starts to get on a roll offensively, I could see him hitting 4th before too long, and 4th in our lineup is going to have a ton of opportunities. A lot has to go right, but if he gets the starts and the opportunities he could knock in around 100 as well.
It would be a big pickup if someone could step into the cleanup spot and knock in a 100. It would do wonders for this team. If I am an opposing manager I still walk Votto to get to Ludwick. Of course, I walk Votto to get to anyone else on this Reds' team.
