Being the Admin for the site, I'm calling shenanigans on Boss-Hog. He's clearly fiddled with the numbers to make him a winner.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
Now go pick Halladay off the bones of the Blue Jays and bring home some hardware in '10.
23 Years and Counting...
I had 79, so close.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
I believe the the ORG had an average of 79 wins for this year. So overall, we were pretty close.
(If you guys had just not allowed me to enter the ORG, my 84 win prediction would not have counted and I believe the average would have been on the nose with 78. So it's your fault for voting me in.)

My guess of 68 looked pretty good for much of August, but I'm glad it was really too low instead of too high.
