    85 wins...good enough for 3rd place (again) in the NL Central

    Krivsky's retooling continues as he took team from 73 wins to 80 in first season. And takes it another 8 games this year to 88. Solid offensively across the board with exception of 1b, which will be below league average. Great subs available at OF in Hamilton and Denorfia.

    Bullpen should be strength as there are plenty of qualified guys, and the natural sifting process will eliminate any weak ones and replace them with strong ones.

    Two great starters, and a cast of potential 3-5 guys (Milton, Lohse, Belisle, Saarlos, Livingston, Ramirez) all of whom could become at least .500 pitchers.

    One of the great secrets to the Krivsky success has been his unwillingness to let guys keep going out there and get torched as the prior GM had allowed. So there will be a sorting out process to figure out who stays at first.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Slightly above League average at LF.

    Starters: league average

    With each day optimism grows, I better nip it in the bud quickly: 85 wins

    A little RZ statistical info so far with 84 predictions.

    Most optimistic: 98 wins
    Most pessimistic: 69 wins
    Average prediction: 81 wins
    Median prediction: 82 wins
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I tend to be optimistic when it comes to the Reds in the Spring (which is strange, because I'm generally a pessimistic person), so I'm going with 84 wins. It just feels good to me.
