This Reds (and Bengals) blog predicts the Reds to finish 94-68 and win the NL Central. Also thinks Stubbs will be the No. 8 hitter in the lineup. Talk about wishful thinking. Not the record, on Stubbs batting eighth. I would love it to happen, but I'm sure Dusty will bat him higher. Speed kills, baby! Haha. I'd also love to see Rolen actually be the cleanup hitter he was 2 years ago, but those days might be behind him. If Dusty wants to have a righty in between Votto and Bruce, he might have to go with either Heisey or Ludwick (whichever part of the platoon is playing on that particular night).
