    1. Will Jay Bruce hit 40 HR?-No
    2. Will Chris Heisey hit .300?-No
    3. Will Brandon Phillips hit .300?-No
    4. Will Ryan Ludwick's wOBA be higher than Jay Bruce's?-Yes
    5. Will Todd Frazier slug .525?-Yes
    6. Will Johnny Cueto win 20 games?-No
    7. Will Aroldis Chapman save 40 games?-Yes
    8. Will Mat Latos have a FIP under 4.00?-Yes
    9. Will Bronson Arroyo have an ERA under 3.75?-No

    I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.

    Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
    Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
    Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.

    If you pick the Reds to win 100 games....how can you not pick Cueto to win 20? Are these wins going to come from leake and Bailey?
