It's June 5th and the Reds are currently losing 7-4 in the 5th inning to the Dodgers. You've seen enough of this team to make a prediction of playoffs or no playoffs. They are currently in third place, but not that far out of it. So, this thing COULD go either way. It's not like they're comfortably in first place or 10 games out where it's pretty clearcut what will happen.
So..........time for predictions.
1. Yes, they make the playoffs - NO MATTER WHAT.
2. Yes, they make the playoffs - BUT ONLY IF a significant trade upgrade is made to improve starting pitching, LF, or SS.
3. No, they don't make the playoffs NO MATTER WHAT.
