    If Brandon Phillips is batting cleanup, how can a team expect to win more than 82? This is not a knock on BP, who has value as a player, but he would never bat 4th on a quality team.

    Not surprising that the whole of Redszone is overly optimistic and that the SunDeck is even more optimistic than the ORG. I am surprised that it was by a lot so many times. Only 3 times within 3.3 runs, while 5 times way overly optimistic.

    I do like the trend of both the SunDeck and the ORG. Better each of the last 3 years for the ORG, while nailing it last season, and much improvement the second season for the SunDeck.

    Looking roughly at the first round of predictions, it's looking like the concensus is going to be somewhere around 80-81 wins, though the SunDeck looks to be closer to 84 while the ORG looks to be closer to 79. Wouldn't be surprised if the 80-number wasn't within three of the pythagorean, also.

    I'm going with 85. Pray our pitching depth and Walt's "direction" counts for something.

    I thought that "Rolen Veteran Leadership" was going to get us to 90+ wins?

    88 wins, and thats mainly because they play in the NL Central. I think they'll do very well this year against the Cubs, Brewers, Pirates, and Astros (when Oswalt isn't pitchin.) .500 or better against the Cards would be a nice bonus.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    They break the losing streak, albeit barely.

    I think they are truly a year away from something special. Give Me 84 wins this year, just missing the wild card.

    I think we'll go 83-79 and it will feel like about 95 wins to us after what we're used to witnessing.

    85 and 77. Close but still on the outside looking in.
