    This was before the emergence of Arroyo, Ross, or Phillips. If anything, the site was relatively optimistic, as always.

    2006 Predictions - RZ Avg Ws: 76.66 Actual: 80 PTHG: 76
    2005 Predictions - RZ Avg Ws: 84.67 Actual: 73 PTHG: 75
    2004 Predictions - RZ Avg Ws 76.82 Actual: 76 PTHG: 67
    2003 Predictions - RZ Avg Ws 87.88 Actual: 69 PTHG: 63
    2002 Predictions - RZ Avg Ws 79.71 Actual: 75 PTHG: 63

    This site has always been a tad optimistic and likely always will. After all, its made up of Reds fans.

    Seems like Redszone is a closer predictor of wins than Pythag in even years only.

    Fascinating analysis. How do you suppose that all the books in Vegas and Reno stay open, seeing as how they're throwing darts at a wall?
