    You must have been gone late eighties and early nineties. The 90, 94, 95 teams were good.
    Reds fan since 1968 win or lose.

    Yeah, I left a few out. But then again, it wasn't the main point of my post, was it?

    People are missing the point of the thread. "Sometimes you just know" was very carefully chosen for a reason. My prediction/feeling about this year is not based on comparison to previous years or "what could happen" in the remaining 153 games. Heck I hope we go 153-0. But sometimes you just know....

    If there are times "you just know" then you should be wagering some significant bets in Vegas. Sounds like you should get a 2nd mortgage on your house and place it on the Reds to miss the playoffs, a bet you can still make.

    I'm too lazy, did you predict the number of wins in the prediction thread?

    Care to give that prediction now?

    I know enough to post on a message board, but not enough to mortgage the house. A pretty wide gap in between there. I'll be talking with Bill Clinton later about what the meaning of "know" is.

    I didn't. Since this thread will come back either way, I'll say 79 wins.

    Re: Sometimes you just know

    I think most people who are very concerned completely understand that a slow start is not an indicator or has any cause-effect relationship. Has anyone really been arguing that? Or are those reminding others of that just plucking some low hanging fruit, copying and pasting and posting it in various threads?

    But the real point is that the offensive inefficiency is continuing from last year and makes being an also ran, similar to the Nats last year, look like a more likely outcome than in prior seasons for 2014.

    Re: Sometimes you just know

    Its all about run differential on making it into the playoffs.
    Last year six NL teams had positive differentials. Five made the playoffs.

    Reds had a +109 last year, third best in the NL. They don't have to match that to make the playoffs.

    Maybe you should have called it "Sometimes you just have a feeling.." when you say you know, you're speaking in absolutes anf certainties. You don't KNOW how this season is going to turn out anymore than anyone else here.

    Choose your words carefully. Don't speak in absolutes. Qualify your posts with things like "I think" and you won't get as much flack.

    Isn't this the same side of the "why do they play the games if the season is determined?" coin?

    I don't think so, I'm just saying they don't have to be as good as they were last year as RS/RA to still make the playoffs.

    They don't have to score as many runs as last year to have a positive differential.

    5 of the six NL teams with a +diff made the playoffs.
