    The kids are hungry, I liked that. Anyways, I am going to predict winning the central, why not? We have the offense and hopefully now we have the pitching, we have a lot of young arms and we should have some good pitchers coming from the bullpen.

    A lot of people might look at me predicting winning the central and saying its crazy, I think it is very possible with the talent we have.

    Let's try to keep this thing legitimate. No crazy predictions to raise or lower the group average. Sounds fair to me. Thanks.

    I'm going to have to go with 85, possibly winning the wild card.

    I think they can get between 88 and 92 wins, I will say 90 and 72. The real question is can we in the Sun Deck acutally have a prediction thread or is that one of the benefits of being on the big boy board?

    80 wins as staus quo in conjunction w/ rigidity that fails to face facts. 88-90 if they let the cream rise to the top. (Time to bring on the youngins').

    88 wins

    Edwin, Jr, Dunn, and Votto with 25+ HR's

    At least three starters with 10+ wins.

    I say that the Reds win the division straight up. SI has the Cubs losing to the Tigers in the World series. Are they nuts?

    GO DUSTY!!

    87 wins and they'll win 75% of the series games against the Cubs during the season.

    Nobody in the NL has seen Volquez and Cueto yet so they'll have the advantage this year if they throw strikes and don't press too hard. The 12 or so games we lost in the 8th inning alone will count for 10 more wins than last year.

    Harang and Arroyo will each win at least 15 games and have record years for SO's.

    BP will win the GG and SS at 2nd base. EE will finally produce like expected

    and if all this happens I'm buying a lottery ticket today just in case I'm some sort of voodoo prognosticator.....or just your typical Spring Training Reds fan.....

    My real prediction will be 87 wins. That should be enough to win the division.

    A preliminary list has been compiled and is at the end of this post. Thanks to everyone who has participated. The final list will be compiled on the morning of Opening Day. (Simply getting a head start here) Sun Deck is certainly optimistic about the Reds chances in 2008. If our collective prognostications have any degree of accuracy about them, the Reds will seriously contend for a playoff spot this year. If anyone sees a mistake with their prediction, or wishes to change it, just PM me and I will make the necessary adjustments. The bottom three on the list did not predict the Reds to go winless. I am awaiting return PMs from them. If any new, or other, Sun Deckers wish to take a stab at the Reds' victory total for this season they are more than welcome. Once again the deadline will be the morning of Opening Day. Thanks.

    I'm going with 85. I'm usually more pessimistic, but my gut says above .500 this year.

    On paper, the Pirates, Astros, and Cardinals look bad to me. That's 45 games, of which the Reds should win 2 out of every 3. 30 wins right there already. If they just split with the Brewers and Cubs, that's another 15 wins. 13 more games against bottom dwellers Washington and San Fran, so that's about 10 more wins.

    I'm up to 55 wins already out of 88 games. Just win at least 30 out of the other 74, and you've got 85 wins.

    See how easy that was? Print the playoff tickets right now.
