    I see the Reds at 77-85 and fourth place. And if they finish above .500, I'll eat more spinach (instead of crow) than Popeye, who they probably could use in left field.
    Awesomeness. And we match!

    60-102

    I see no way that this team is nothing but bad. I guess its a good thing that my interest in the Reds is by far the lowest it has ever been so I will not waste as much time on a losing team as I have in the past.

    Here we have the two extremes. 4256 says 60 wins and Big Klu says 94. I'm confident in saying BK will not see this team come even close to 90 wins, but I'm also confident they'll win more than 60.

    78-84

    A few decent offseason moves to bolster LF/SS (and leave CF alone), and a competent manager, and we'd have had a solid chance at 87+ territory, in my opinion.

    The board seems a bit pessimistic this season. The contrarian view says...

    88 wins.
    "...You just have a wider lens than one game."
    --Former Reds GM Wayne Krivsky, on why he didn't fly Josh Hamilton to Colorado for one game.

    "...its money well-spent. Don't screw around with your freedom."
    --Roy Tucker, on why you need to lawyer up when you find yourself swimming with sharks.
