    I do not necessarily think it will happen, but I will not be surprised if it does.
    If that's the basis someone is doing rankings, then it's pretty ridiculous.

    Those two things are a very, very small aspect of why teams would be expected to rise or fall in total wins/standings.

    Reds will win 112 games this year to make up for the wins they deserved (and never received) after winning 97 games and then adding their 2nd best player.

    The Reds will finish no worse than first or second in the NL Central in 2014.

    PS The Reds didn't get worse. We have a year more experience for some key young pitchers, we have the prospect of 25-30 starts from a healthier Cueto, and we gained a heck of a whole lot in the managerial shift (addition by subtraction <smile>), etc.

    I doubt the Reds finish fourth. I predict second.

    Re: SI predicts Reds will finish 4th in the division

    Finishing 4th with that pitching rotation would be pretty shocking, but it all depends on the win total, I suppose. Third place last year with a win total that would have won some divisions in recent years.
    Rounding third and heading for home...
