    2010 - Gonelong's 9th annual Season Ws prediction thread .

    Ok, time for Gonelong's 9th annual Reds Win prediction thread. As always, the request is pretty simple.

    1. Give a number of Ws you project.
    2. Make the prediction as honestly as you can. It's a prediction, not a hope.
    3. Feel free to wait for opening day to make your prediction.

    When I return from opening day I'll compute the average guestimate. (One again, my brother was able to wrangle me a ticket. Thanks bro!)

    Hopefully the Sundeck will once again organize a thread and take up a friendly challenge from the ORG. Last year the Sundeck really put the pressure on, though the ORG ended up ever so slightly closer to the final number of Ws.

    My prediction for the Reds is that they will win 81 games ... oh so tantalizing close to .500.

    It has been some time since I felt the Reds had a decent chance to materially out-pace my prediction, but I feel like this is one of those years. Hopefully they will get out of the gate quickly and gain some momentum.

    Go Reds!

    82 wins
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    92 wins! i'm a homer but i like the rotation and how we played at the end of last season with rolen.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.
