    I'm going to say 75 wins.

    And there was much rejoicing.

    84 wins. A relatively weak division and a good rotation carries us, but the offense, while showing promise, has too many black holes to allow the team to go any further.

    I figure this team is good for about 76 wins.

    Anything more would require a giant leap forward for Jay Bruce, a career year from Willy Taveras, a breakout season from Edwin Encarnacion, and at least one major midseason acquisition.

    (And, hot damn -- I never looked back to last year's prediction thread. I hit dead-on with my guess.)

    Well that's just the thing isn't it, you have to figure the unbiased odds of the likelihood of any of those things actually happening. And figure the likelihood of most other guys having a similiar year as last. I happen to think that the pitching is improved (especially that 5th hole) and the defense is as well. I also like the bench a bit better also.

    I think we are in for an improvement of up to 3-5 games without a big explosion by someone. However I expect an explosion of sorts from Jay Bruce which it's hopefully not wasted by sandwiching him between BP (if he hits into a lot of DP's) and Edwin (with his amazing inconsistency).

    I'll split the difference and call it a 78 win team with a ceiling of about 81-82 wins unless there is some major addition to the club at some point.

    No kool-aid this year
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I want to say 87, but I'll go with what I really think:


    83 wins this year and setting the team up for a run in '10!

    69-93. this team is going to be awful. And if I had to take 69 as the over/under, I'd take the under.

    Please, let me be wrong!!!!
