    I see issues with Harang, growing pains with the kids, but Bailey and Cueto take over and give 17-18 wins each. Probably looking at an 88 win season, finishing just out of the wild card.

    98 wins

    The line up will generate much more power than most people expect. Votto, Phillips and Bruce will race toward 30 HR's each. I expect Dickerson/Stubbs to generate 20 plus and Gomes/Balentin to generate 30 plus.

    I think Harang will have a good year with Bailey having a break out year. I also expect Chapman to go 14-2 once he arrives in mid-May.

    Cordero saves 40 and Masset gets 10 or so to boot.

    86 wins
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    I say 85 wins as well.

    Obviously, the defense will be better. But the offense and defense... Well, they should be better. But that will depend alot on young guys and iffy vets. I doubt they'll be in the playoff chase after August. I'd love it if I was wrong about that though. Continued improvement in the organization overall is what I want. So, I'll be paying alot more attention to the AAA team than I have in the past. And, I'll be looking forward to the end of the "lost decade" after nine years.

    I'm going with 83. A solid five game improvement over last year

    Next year they make a bigger jump.

    This is the most optimistic I've felt about this team and organization in many years. Probably since April of 2000. I think the Reds can actually compete for the division if the Cards stumble. If the Cards don't stumble, they will compete for the wildcard with the Phils (Atlanta is my choice in the East).

    I think realistically this is an 82 or 83 win team, but they'll get a little lucky and play above their pythag by a few.

    86-76.....and trending up. 90+ for 2011 and beyond.

    88 wins.

    1. Starting with a stronger roster, no defensive weaknesses, better offensive potential.
    2. Healthy to start the season with plenty of backup at Louisville. When the injuries do come, and they always do, the team won't miss a beat.

    It's the bolded part that worries me.

    77 Wins. Not enough offense to prop up a very young but good rotation for an entire year. I think they get average or worse by position production from everyone not on the right side of the field. Next year I think is a different story.

    87 wins, I'm being a little optimistic in my heart but I usually am this time of year. Realistically I think they are about a .500 team.
