.500 Baseball baby!
74 wins. I mean, you gotta score some runs. And, don't think that pitching is as good as people have you believe. 2 questions in the rotation and one real big one at the end. In fact I've never been so empathetic at the start of a season in my life. Speed & defense.

Hal McCoy says:
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.
"I think he'd be unbelievable. He's as organized as anyone in the game, he holds people accountable... He doesn't buy into stereotypical things in the game... Price looks at evidence. He's a freaking smart guy, he makes his decision on reasonable evidence." Bronson Arroyo
78 wins is where I see them. Inconsistant pitching, and below-average offense aren't a recipe for winning.
-LTlabnerIf you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.
