    I'll take it, given the past few years.

    Except they have us losing out on the wild card to the D-backs by 1 game.

    I don't see how Houston wins 74 games. I look at that team on paper, and it just stinks out loud.

    If the Reds get 87 wins then they will win the division. But this season really depends on Johnny Cueto and Edison Volquez and later on in the season it could depend on Homer. Harang will be Harang and put up Cy Young Award numbers. Arroyo could win any where between 10-16 games.

    87 wins sounds good compared to the reds of recent. I think that we could actually win the WC with 87 wins, but it would be close
    3-2 at games this year
    5-9 all time

    More like the Division. 87 wins would likely take the Central and leave the Reds in the Play Off's where we'd do good with our starting rotation against some teams.

    I can't say I will take that until I see these young kids perform a little bit more because I have high hopes!

    My eyes are on Cueto, Volquez and Bill Bray.

    If those guys do what we hope they can, the Cubs will finish in 2nd place!

    87 isn't bad. I'd love to have that, seeing as it would put us in a playoff race. I have pretty much forgot what that feels like.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    87 wins and a wild card or division title would be outstanding!

    SI also says the Reds will finish second in the "AL East." What is it with SI and errors surrounding Cincinnati?

    That depends on how many times Roy Oswalt starts against Cincinnati....
