    I've always been one of the lowest predictors, but I have genuine optimism this year.

    I'll say 95-67.

    The rotation isn't as strong as they think it is, and it wasn't addressed despite its obvious shortcomings in the NLDS.

    Ditto LF.

    80 wins

    I am not sure if it is acceptable to post about the predictions here, and if it is not please scorn me....but

    I am genuinely shocked about the low predictions I am seeing about this up coming season. I picked 97 wins, and though I realize it may be reaching, I am taken a back by the lower numbers on here. Are the Reds really just and average team? Placing about 85 wins and not making the playoffs?

    90 wins (plus at least 5 in the playoffs)!

    85 wins, I'm seriously worried about the injuries in the rotation. At least they get one of those dreaded west coast trips out of the way early.

    89 Wins, NL Central Champs, NL Representatives in the World Series where we lose 4-2 to Boston.

    83 wins. And could easily be lower. The wave of injuries to the staff and the strike throwing issues some are exhibiting better resolve favorably soon to make the higher predictions in here remotely attainable.

    81 wins
    During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times. I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times. You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at bats a season. That means I played seven years without ever hitting the ball. ~Mickey Mantle, 1970

    Guys like LeCure and Maloney are nice spot-start insurance, but if this team has to rely on either of them for extended runs like I think they might, there's no way this team is posting a record north of .500.
    This all captures my concern completely.

    90 wins, but I don't think that wins the NL Central. It will be hard to repeat when we continue to struggle with supereior opponents and the Brewers and Cubs look to contend. Last year it was Lose to the Cards and win the rest, but I just don't see the rest being as easy. Still optomistic though. Fast Start with Bailey and Cueto on the DL will gain national attention, struggles with better teams will keep us from running away with it, but in the end Fransisco will be the everyday third basemen due to a Rolen injury and his bat leads us down the stretch and hits 30 HR for the year.

    Since they eclipsed the 81 win mark last season, I say: 87 wins.
