    79 wins.

    I actually think 86, but every year I get optimistic and predict a big year. I've got to change that luck!

    Houston 82 80 .506 1.5
    Cincinnati 80 82 .494 3.5
    Milwaukee 75 87 .463 8.5
    Pittsburgh 67 95 .414 16.5
    Chicago 66 96 .407 17.5


    Trend in the division: More offense, Less pitching

    Key addition's per team: (Most Impact adds in Red)

    St. Louis - Adam Kennedy/Kip Wells

    Houston - Carlos Lee/Mark Loretta/Jason Jennings/Woody Williams

    Cincinnati - Alex Gonzales/Jeff Conine/Josh Hamilton/Kirk Sarloos/Mike Stanton

    Milwaukee - Tony Graffinino/Craig Counsell/Johnny Estrada/Jeff Suppan/Claudio Vargas/Greg Aquino/Elmer Dessens

    Pittsburgh - Adam Laroche/Tony Armas Jr.

    Chicago - Alfonso Soriano/Cliff Floyd/Mark Derosa/Daryle Ward/Ted Lilly/Jason Marquis/Neal Cotts


    Key Defections:

    St. Louis - Jeff Suppan, Jeff Weaver, Ron Belliard
    Houston - Roger Clemens, Andy Pettite, Aubrey Huff
    Cincinnati - Rich Aurilia
    Milwaukee - Jeff Cirillo, Brady Clark, Doug Davis
    Pittsburgh - Joe Randa, Mike Gonzales
    Chicago - Juan Pierre


    Key Injury returnee's: (These are just possible returnees)

    Houston - Morgan Ensberg
    Cincinnati - Ken Griffey Jr
    Milwaukee - Ben Sheets, Corey Koskie
    Pittsburgh - NA
    Chicago - Derek Lee, Mark Prior, Kerry Wood


    What's it all mean:

    St. Louis: Worse (Rotation and/or Pen)
    Houston: Worse (Rotation and defense doesn't make up for offense adds)
    Cincinnati: Same to better (Better def., better bench may make up for poss small decline in pitching overall)
    Milwaukee: Much Better (Better Staff and Pen, Same Off, similiar to better D)
    Pittsburgh: Slightly better (1 yr of maturity for pitch, better off, sim def)
    Chicago: Much better but 20-25 games better no (better off, worse def. same to worse pitching)


    2007 Standings: (Injuries not withstanding)

    Milwaukee - 88 wins
    Cincinnati - 86 wins
    St. Louis - 81 Wins
    Chicago - 80 wins

    I think it's going to be tightly bunched again this season. Reds get 85 wins, and it might be enough to win. The only team that won't be in it is Pittsburgh. Everyone else stays in it until Sept.

    Yea 99 wins sounds crazy, but no one will remember my prediction 5 months from now and if the Reds do by some miracle have 99 wins, I will look like a freaking genius!!!

    72-90 this season

    One of the better predictors of how the season will go is the final 10-ish games of spring training (I used the final 12), when rotations are being set and everyday lineups are being used more often and for longer periods. Reds went 5-7 in that period. Extrapolated over a full season that means 68 or so wins. I think the Reds are a tad better than that so I'm saying 72 wins this year.

    77 wins.
    And that's being optimistic.

    Good for Narron's first winning season as a manager and a 3 year contract extension.
