Most Vottomatic Player
I forgot about something. I up my prediction to a whopping 83 if volquez comes back healthy when he's supposed to. I really have a lot of faith in that guy even though I keep forgetting about him.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
Let's debate the predictions after the season and keep this thread as a straight prediction thread (at least for the sake of the thread creators goal)
No Victims, by me

Lots wearing rose colored glasses.
I say 72 wins with Dusty getting fired in July.
And Jay Bruce hits 34 HR's
2010 Mock Draft Selections (picking for Rays)
85 wins, wild card, then a little run with the great starting pitching of Volquez and Chapman and Homer and Cueto!
Win some, lose some, some get rained out.
92 Wins. Have a chance to be best team in NL if all the best case scenarios pan out. (Bruce, Votto, Bailey, Harang, Stubbs). No Willie Tavarez-like black holes in lineup.
Most likely scenario to drag them down: Harang and Rolen struggle, but remain fixtures because that's how Dusty shows loyalty to vets.
Pitching and defense wins.....and young studs with lumber.
