    Re: Under/Over for 2006

    Reds wins..........81 --- Under, I'll call 74

    Griffey HRs.........38 --- Under, that only happens with 550 AB

    Dunn HRs...........44 --- Over, 48 is my guess

    Attendance.......2.25 million --- Over (barely) New ownership increases marketing efforts and pushes hard for increased attendence

    Team ERA..........5.00 --- Under (barely), Milton won't be as bad for as long and the bullpen got about 300 IP from guys with a collective ERA over 7.00. That won't happen again.

    Re: Under/Over for 2006

    Reds wins..........81
    Under. Way Under. Try 70
    Griffey HRs.........38
    Under. He's only good for 400 AB's
    Dunn HRs...........44
    I'm going over - this is the year he hits 50
    Attendance.......2.25 million
    Are you talking Paid Attendance? I'm voting over if it includes Freebies
    Team ERA..........5.00
    Over. Suddenly I feel like a Rockies Fan. (All 4 of them.)

    So far it doesn't appear that a single Redszoner thinks the team could finish at .500 or better this year.

    Re: Under/Over for 2006

    Reds wins..........81 Under. Unless you count the first two months of the 2007 season

    Griffey HRs.........38 Under. Just not feeling good about this World Baseball thing.

    Dunn HRs...........44 Under. Sorry hon, but I think the move to 1st is going to have you a little off balance at the plate too.

    Attendance.......2.25 million Under. See first answer.

    Team ERA..........5.00 Over. Way over.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    I do!

    I'm just about at that point in the off-season where I begin to lose track of facts and become delusional. In fact I'm going to head even further out on that limb and say that the Reds may battle it out for third place in the division. I know, I know, shoot high.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Re: Under/Over for 2006

    The last three seasons should tell us that the ERA will be over 5.00--but I've got a hunch that Castellini is going to try to stanch the bleeding by trading for or signing another slightly "name" pitcher who will help force Milton out of the rotation. Which should help bring down the team ERA somewhat. But then there's the bullpen...

    Re: Under/Over for 2006

    I'll play, with my guesses in the (_)


    Reds wins..........81 UNDER (70)

    Griffey HRs.........38 UNDER (28)

    Dunn HRs...........44 UNDER (40)

    Attendance.......2.25 million UNDER (1.9M)

    Team ERA..........5.00 OVER (5.4)
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    I do. Of course, I said that last year, too.

    Where exactly are you going to put Milton then? You're not going to pay him the last $20M on his contract to release him and there surely aren't many trading partners knocking down the doors to get to Milton.

    Like it or not, he's in the rotation until October 2007.

    The best we can do it hope and pray that he has a turn-around season and gets back to some level of respectibility.

    So the brand spankin' new owner is going to sit back and be "patient" while his fans head for the exits in the 5th inning during his home starts? That's a bang-up way to do business. Hell, that's even more cynical than I can conjure.

    Eric Milton isn't just a bad pitcher, he's an emblem, the very golden Apollo, of failure--if DanO wants to keep his head, he'll find somewhere to hide Milton (mop-up) posthaste. That is, of course, unless Castellini isn't as "impatient" as we all hope.

    Eric Milton is the Reds Maginot line.
