Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun
I'm feeling optimistic myself............
I'm gonna say 68-94....not because of the pitching, but because I think this group will set a franchise record for errors in a season.
Also, the offense now seemingly depends almost completely on JR......and that is trouble.
Hold on tight Reds fans....this is going to be a doosie!
"Is there a problem officers?"
78-84 but am hoping for a 100 wins. IF Harang,Arroyo and Milton can give us 200 innings each and Claussen 160 it may be better than we all think. But that is a mighty big IF.

I predict that the Reds will play 162 games.
Oh, I'm supposed to predict how they will do in those 162 games.......
82-80. I hate predicting them to have a losing season.

69 is what I said a couple months ago and I think that Arroyo could be worth a couple more. I'll go with 71 wins. Jerry Narron will be out of town sometime in August.
"My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
Narron is out about midseason
Our starting rotation does well and surprises a lot of people
I'm a trends guy. If the Reds win the first one I'll say 162. Can't win em all without winning the first one.
More realistically I'll say 79-81
80-82. It would have been better, but I can see us giving away several games in April and May by playing bad lineups weighed down with slow, aging vets (Hatteburg and Aurillia say "hello").
I'm thinking the Reds pull their usual, remain in contention at the All-Star break, but I'm hoping some of the veterans are removed from the roster in late July and the youngsters take over in August/September to gain experience and give Wayne a chance to evaluate. With development comes losing. I'm thinking they'll be under .500 in the second half.

Any team with Dave Williams, Tony Womack, Rich Aurilia and Scott Hatteburg on it cannot be a good thing.
