    O/U for Reds wins this year

    My online sportsbook (for entertainment purposes only) has not yet released the Over/Under lines for the 2007 season. It's always one of my favorite things to research and is always a better indictator of how the teams will finish than the various magazine previews. The O/U for the Reds was pretty low last year (something like 70.5). I wonder what they will open at this year. My guess is 80.5 and will probably take the over just to be loyal. No, I really think we are going to have a winning club this year. Just barely, but a winning club. My early projection is 83-79. Won't be enough to get us in the playoffs but will keep it interesting all year. Kind of like last year. But man would it be nice to break through and sneak in the playoffs. Now is the time to bite in the National League when there are no great teams. Make the postseason and anything can happen. As the very-average Cardinals (IMO) proved last season. I mean, they were above average of course, but not a World Series team. Anyway, will be interesting to see where the people who put their money where their mouths are have the Reds at to open the season.

    78-84....no way with this offense and only 2 starting pitchers will we be a
    .500 team
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    yeah. as much as i want to be optimistic with this squad, I don't seen .500 either. We're gonna struggle to score runs at times, and probably get shelled 2 out of every 5 starts. Not to mention the Cubs will be back to full health this year, and I'm not loving our chances.

    84 wins due to some mid season acquisitions aka 60 game mark not true mid season time
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    This will be my 46th season and though I'm always optimistic to a degree I picked them to go 75-87 last year. I think this team has improved so I'll say 88-74 this year.EE and Dunn will have big years,Gonzales will play suburb defense, Griffey will hit 30 hrs drive in 90 and Saarloos and Bailey will solidify the starting rotation. Coffey will take the closers role and get the job done.The rest of the pen will be fine with Bray and Belisile being big contibuters this year.
    As I said always optimistic.

    88 wins in 2007. What makes anyone think this club isn't 8 games better than last year?

    Last year's team won games at an above .500 level in the first half with:

    1. Hatte, Ross, and Phillips playing at higher than should be expected levels.
    2. Kearns, Lopez and Aurilia contributing a lot of offense
    3. Quality Starts from Milton and Ramirez (both coming off surgery)

    And in the second half the Reds had:

    1. A first time around the league rotation boost from Kyle Lohse
    2. Other Worldly, BABIP driven, relief performances from Weathers and Schoeneweiss

    And throughout the season won a number of games it should have lost from unlikely to be repeated drama in the form of:

    1. Dunn's Grand Slam walk-off
    2. Griffey's HR the first day off the DL
    3. Ryan Freel's catch
    4. David Ross Walk-off
    5. Javy Heroics
    6. Chris Michalek out of nowhere relief appearance in Philly
    etc. etc. etc.

    I just do not see many of these things being repeated or replaced. The Reds will no doubt get some help from unexpected sources, improvement from Dunn and Encarnacion, other exciting finishes, and maybe even more help from Bray and Maj than most expect, but this team has lost too much offensive talent from the time that it was good in 2006 (June) and have made no real improvement in any area for 2007 with the exception of defense at SS.

    I am much more upbeat about the fanchise since the Harang and Arroyo deals, and I don't want to be a downer, but I can't get past the facts. I say 69 Wins in 2007.

    You know how baseball is - there will be high moments and Drama - just hopeful we won't repeat that 9 game losing steak after we tied for 1st place. You could also say Dunn won't suck in Sept, Griff won't miss the last month+, we will have better defense, Phillips after hot was cold and he'll probably be more ave. with hot streaks, we have a better bench and I think the pen will be better. No Yan and so many retreads. I think Loshe will be better then people think, and Milton is in his contract year. I think the pitching will be better then what you might think and top to bottom we'll put up runs. I see us hanging in the race and depending on injuries by us and other teams will be a big factor in what we end up doing. We meaning the Reds for those who don't like me saying that.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    I hate to say it but it really wouldn't surprise me if this team lost 100 games. I think it will be more along the lines of 68-73 wins though.

    If you have an o/u line for the Reds at 70.5, that's an easy bet on the over. The Reds won't necessarily be good, but they should easily be in the 70s for wins.

    There is no way that we lose 92 games a this year. Harang and Arroyo will combine for over 30 wins by themselves... It's difficult for a team to lose that many games. Easy Over
