    Lee Sinins NL Central Picks:

    1)STL 2)CIN 3)HOU 4)MIL 5)CHC 6)PIT

    I wish I could hold him to it. :

    No one else has the Reds above 4th and most have 'em bring up the rear.
    Not so,
    Joe Sheehan also has the Reds 2nd.

    The Reds have the most upside of the other five teams, and they could be interesting if they somehow managed to stay under 850 runs allowed. I donít really see it happening; they have a below-average rotation and poor bullpen pitching in front of what might be the NLís worst defense in a very good hittersí park. In a best-case scenario, their five starters stay healthy and provide league-average performance, while some combination of Ryan Wagner (who I really like this year), Matt Belisle and Todd Coffey emerge as a 1-2 combination in the bullpen.

    Code:
    Cardinals    94   68      850   730
    Reds         83   79      901   879
    Cubs         83   79      764   753
    Astros       80   82      681   687
    Brewers      77   85      710   741
    Pirates      67   95      669   788

    Jpup, sorry I didn't notice that thread.

    rdiersin, kind of funny that part of Sheehan's rationale for what could go right with the Reds, namely Ryan Wagner, has started the year in AAA.

    Yea, I noticed that too. Its also kind of interesting that this is what he got after he looked at the whole thing. In the article he mentioned that this was his final predictions, and his initial predictions are the ones in the staff predictions, which he picked the Reds 4th.
