    Re: Under/Over for 2006

    Okay gang...under or over?

    Reds wins..........81 Under, right at 79 is my guess.

    Griffey HRs.........38 Over, Griffey hits 41.

    Dunn HRs...........44 Under, Dunn hits 43

    Attendance.......2.25 million Under

    Team ERA..........5.00 Under, 4.82

    Nope, we still have the same people...Dorothy, Toto, The Lion, Scarecrow, and the Tin Man still might have a better Team ERA than the Reds.

    Nah...Dorothy throws like a girl. The Lion is not intimidating enough. Scarecrow has elbow and shoulder problems and Tin Man has problems with his mechanics.

    Attendance might spike, but unless a starship arrives with pitchers soon the rest will be spot on.

    Re: Under/Over for 2006

    Anybody want to revisit any of their predictions (i.e., Griffey's HRs) in light of what's been going on so far this spring?
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    I might increase the 70 to 75 wins - Or somewhere in between.

    Re: Under/Over for 2006

    Alright you guys got it, I am going to be the eternal optimist! As the season starts I see the desire from these guys playing all out for a new FO that is determined to win.

    Okay gang...under or over?

    Reds wins..........81- 84 wins (most of which prior to AS Break)

    Griffey HRs.........38- 41 HR's (The big reason we win 84)

    Dunn HRs...........44- 38 (With more 2B's)

    Attendance.......2.25 million- Winning brings fans (2.6 Mil)

    Team ERA..........5.00 - Push right out 5.00

    This might make me look like I don't know what I'm talking about, but that's not the case. I understand the talent level suggests that we cannot reach these goals, that is if we envision a normal season of ups and downs and still are able to win this much. However I am thinking that we might just play same level throughout. The factors I am taking into consideration are a mediocre NL this year, a fresh approach by the organization (an actual commitment to the players, that they have seemed to buy into) and lastly I think we are due for a little luck or good Kharma for a change!

    But if not i'll a take a top 3 pick in next years draft!
