Also, can we have a link to Davenports projections? The OP has two links in the original post but not to the thing that actually is the basis for the post.
Yeah, I would probly to if I was on a Cubs forum. I guess I didn't do a very good job of getting my point across. What I was getting at, very pooly, is that this team has been pretty good for a few years now, and it's not like we have lost a ton of players either. So for someone to project that the Reds are middle of the road and that anyone who thinks otherwise is living in a fantasy world to me is absurd. When it comes to my favorite sports teams, I'm no homer. I know my Hoosiers are having a down year and I know what to expect. I to think the Reds will have a better year then what Davenport is projecting, can I see them having that type of year, yeah sure, but I think a few things would have to go wrong for that to happen.
