    2006 Prediction Thread

    Forgive me if there's an official thread about it, but I didn't see one on Reds Live.
    How many games will the Reds win this year?
    I'm gonna start it off by saying 78, with an optimistic eye towards 2007. Flirting with .500 and above until July, then tailing off.

    Edit-I guess I'll make a range now, to make it official, so 75-80 wins.
    I didn't know I had to wait for gonelong to legitimize a prediction thread.

    Re: Prediction thread

    I don't think there is an official prediction thread as yet. Congrats for starting one.

    My prediction....86 games.

    Yes I'm nuts, but it just feels like a year with no expectations and it will yield some positive results.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    71 -- I hope I'm wrong...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    23 wins.

    (Think of it this way. It's historic. They'd get the first pick in the draft, assuming the Royals are just a game better. Plus, if they're better than that, I walk away a happy man.)

    It's a win/ win situation.
    Wait a minute...

    I believe they will get close to .500 but not quite there.

    80-82.

    Re: 2006 Prediction Thread

    Why not, I think we can cling on to some good luck this season ...

    75-87

    If the team was properly managed and the was fortunate in the injury column (I know, I know ... two massive IFs), I could see them finishing over .500 and even possibly making it exciting for us if the NL Central has a down year. But Narron will ensure that mismanagement is the only consistent managing he will do this season.

    I'd love for nothing more than to see this club surprise the heck out of everyone, especially me, but I just don't think it's realistic at this point.

    101 wins for sure...

    Nah, a little high without a great offense to back up our pitching.


    I'll realistically say 74 wins.

    That being said if the pitching comes together nicely (need Milton, Harang, Claussen, and Arroyo to all give us a shot day in and day out which is asking a lot) and Krivsky could possibly swing a deadline deal or two, I could see the Reds winning 87-88 games.
