    Homer throws a no-hitter

    Francisco hits one in the top row of the RF bleachers

    Janish ends the season with above average offense by a SS but won't be qualified because of lack of ABs (ok, that's not so bold)

    1.) Ramon Hernandez is traded.
    2.) Aroldis Chapman starts the conversion to starter around August.
    3.) The Cubs finish better than fourth place.

    On another note with the catchers, what about, if for the next couple years, we keep Hernandez around in Corky's role and dump Corky. I love the stache, but it seems like Hernandez could fill his role with a good bit more offensive production.

    It's not a contract year for Brandon. Reds hold an option.

    1. Heisey becomes starting LF'er and hits 20 HR's
    2. Chapman is inconsistent as a reliever and is sent to Louisville to work on starting
    3. The replacement for an injured Rolen ends up being Frazier and not Francisco

    I agree with number 3, I feel the Cubs are getting over looked for the first time in a while, usually they are getting more attention than they deserve. However if Colvin is going to be their 4th Outfielder they don't deserve it.

    1. Performance of young players such as Brandon Belt, Bryce Harper, and Devin Mes will bring back memories of Space Jam's Monstars.

    2. The rest of the division turns out to be really, really bad. Pirates quietly sneak into third place.

    3. Oakland's Gio Gonzalez finishes top five in Cy Young.

    Reds Edition

    1) Joey Votto will not be the Reds best hitter.

    2) Mike Leake will be the Reds best pitcher of whose on the team now.

    3) The Reds will acquire a true Ace by the trading deadline.

    I have a funny feeling BP and Cordero are gone by seasons end. Thats why I want to win early, especially in the case of BP. I don't want him anywhere else for as long as possible.

    Re: 3 Bold Predictions for 2011

    The Reds
    1. Janish OPSs .700+
    2. Votto doesn't hit .300
    3. Masset leads the team in saves

    Rest of MLB
    1. Rays have better record than Yankees
    2. Texas barely clears .500
    3. Adam Dunn hits 50 HR
    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.

    Re: 3 Bold Predictions for 2011

    The Reds
    Travis Wood will put up better numbers than anyone in the rotation.
    Dusty will waste the offensive talent of Jay Bruce because he hits LH.
    Rolen will appear in 121 games but will only start 96 games and hit 4th.
    Joey Votto will suffer from lineup construction and go 287/347/507.

    MLB
    The Braves will battle the Phillies down to the wire and might beat'em.
    The Boston Red Sox will win the most regular season games in 2011.
    Adam Dunn will hit at least 35 HRs.

    Re: 3 Bold Predictions for 2011

    1. Mesoraco starts very slow in Louisville before rebounding mid-summer
    2. Jay Bruce hits more HR than Joey Votto
    3. Andre Ethier is the starting LF for the Reds by August

    Unfortunate Bonus: the Cubs will be much better than anyone expects
