    Will the Reds be over/under .500?

    The Reds won 74 games with that horrible squad last year. The Reds have upgraded this team. Im saying 82

    Re: Will the Reds be over/under .500?

    even predicting a rainout huh?

    I don't know that since Jones was added we can hope for that. Dusty's been given a 'vet' to turn over LF to now.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    If Icehole isn't opposed to it I'd like to see it. That said make mine under .500 something like 75-78 wins, assuming of course something unexpected doesn't happen to us or other Clubs in our division.

    I do not see this team as upgraded at all. My guess is around 72 wins. So I will take the 'under' on the Reds playing .500 ball. (I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it).

    I'll take the under with the current roster.

    Re: Will the Reds be over/under .500?

    I'll take the under till they improve the roster.
    I could see these guys flirt with 500 for a while, but they are not deep enough or good enough.

    I say well under. I hope I'm as wrong as I've ever been, but I don't think this team is any better than it was last year. The argument can be made that it's worse.

    I disagree with your premise, and take the under. And if the over/under was 74, I'd probably still take the under. In no way has this team been upgraded.

    I cannot make win total predictions unless it is in that offical thread right before Opening Day.

    But, under.

    I'm saying, with the current squad, under 70.

    Re: Will the Reds be over/under .500?

    Lost too much offense and didn't add nearly enough defense or pitching. Taveras and Jones will start the year in CF and LF and Dusty will wait about a month too long to make a switch when their suckitude is apparent to all others, costing them at least 6-9 games.

    74 should be the over/under not 82. They'll never sniff .500 after the 4th of July (if they're even within five games then). I'm saying 72 wins and a tight race with the Bucs for 5th/6th place.

    The best news is September, with a lineup that has at least 5 players with three or less years experience (as many as 7 when Hanigan catches). Phillips and Hernandez are the only vets playing with any regularity (EdE too if he isn't dealt - I say that's 50/50 though).

    you honestly think Jones is going to be the starter in LF?

    Yep. I have total faith in Dusty. It's just too Dusty a move not to make it. When I clicked on the site yesterday and the instant I saw the title of the thread about he and Ward signing I said to myself, "there's your starting LF". before I even opened the thread.
