    How many games can this Reds team win with this offense?

    I know its only one game but I believe this is how the games are going to play out all year. The Reds pitching will be good all season but the offense will be terrible. THye will struggle to score 3 runs a game. I see them scoring 1 run in a game more than any other team in MLB. There offense is just awful no way they win 70 games with it. Heres to a long season and not making the post season again.

    87.

    Nothing's changed since last week, except that Gonzo and Hairston's getting healthier.


    When you play the Mets this year, you only get 7 innings to score. Putz and Rodriguez will make sure of that. We only got the 1 run and we missed on several opportunities. However, Phillips did get the run in during the man on 3rd and less than 2 outs situation.

    2, yes I'm completely serious here. Hear me out, I know this sounds like hyperbole but I fully believe this will be the worst offense in the history of organized sports and they will go 2-159 (with one rainout not made up). I know it's only one game, but I can't see how I could be wrong.

    Let's not torpedo the season just yet. They did face Santana and what is widely considered the best back part of the bullpen in the National League today.

    Guys, lets cool it with the doomsday prophecies. They played the best pitcher in baseball today! Plus, the weather sucked. Give it at least a week.

    I say 84, with this pitching there will be a lot of chances to win while only scoring two or three runs.

    I for one was actually kind of enthused by what I saw today. Low scoring was expected, but this team was one solid hit away from taking the W against "the best pitcher in baseball". We're going to see a lot of this 2-1 stuff and I think we'll be on the winning end of a lot of them.

    It's kind of hard to take one loss and say we'll get 17 wins all season from it. As many of the real analysts are saying, this team is right on the cusp of something great.

    Santana, Putz and Rodriguez in 37 degree weather? Tough for anyone to score more than one run.

    If you guys think we can only win 60 with that offense you saw today....you must also say that the Mets will win about 70 right? They did only score 2 runs.

    Great point, and no one would argue that the Mets need offense with some of those bats they have. The conditions today made this game a tough one.

    So, we can now accurately say that this offense will stink. Let's see: 35 degrees, check, Johann Santana (the best pitcher in baseball), check, JJ Putz, check, Francisco Rodriguez, check, 1st game of the season, check. Calm down. Not too many offenses would have been very successful today.

    Wait until we face number 3 through 5 starters then evaluate after 6 weeks.
