    ESPN's Prediction.....Dead Last.

    Cue the Lou Brown speech about giving them all a big ______burger to eat. Maybe we can get a life size poster of Rachel Phelps to use also.

    So they're saying the only teams we're going to have more wins than is Florida & KC. I think some people at ESPN need to start doing their research on all the teams instead of spending all their hours researching the growth rate of Johnny Damons whiskers & the size of Barry Bonds twig & berries.

    I personally think we finish with around 80 wins this year.

    Yeah, I don't even believe the Pirates will have a better record than the Reds.

    The Cubs could really implode too.

    TMBS, the Reds really don't have a chance to be any higher than 4th in the NL central this year.

    There are 4 teams in the divsion who could ultimately finish last...The reds being one of them...I don't see them any better or worse.

    what is this? The 25th straight year that they have picked the Yankees to win it all?

    I think the Yankees average one world Championship every 4 or 5 years so it's probably never a bad prediction.

    The Cubs best two pitchers are on the DL again.

    The Cardinals have Sidney Ponson in their starting rotation, and their once powerful outfield is now anemic.

    The Astros no longer have Jeff Bagwell or Roger Clemens.

    The NL Central isn't so cut and dry as it used to be.

    The Reds will at least beat the Royals and Rockies, possibly the Marlins and Pirates as well. And who knows how they'd fare if they played in the NL West....

    Ponson is in the rotation, but that may work out given Dave Duncan's record with retreads. And if it doesn't, Reyes and Wainwright are waiting in the wings. I am concerned about how Encarnacion will do though.
