    Predict Game 1 of the LDS

    Ok, this is my attempt to interject some fun into the current gloomy mood...

    It's ok to predict the Reds will lose

    My prediction.
    Reds win game 1, 4-2. Score 3 runs off Cain. Ludwick has 2 RBI. Phillips and Votto both score runs. Bruce gets a solo HR late in the game off a Giants' reliever.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    13-2 Reds win. Votto finally busts his HR drought with 2 bombs. Phillips & Bruce each add one too. 16 hits, lots for extra bases.

    With this team...when you see what they "should" do, go the other way. Facing Cain in SF...yep, offensive explosion.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Roy Holliday will throw a perfect game.

    Giants win 2-0 as the offense is, well, the offense.

    Naw, 2 unearned and a broken bat flare from Phillips after Hanigan walks and is bunted over.

    Reds win 3-2, no Reds home runs.

    Reds get no hit but win 1-0 on a bases loaded walk in the 9th. Cueto piches a complete game 3 hitter.

    2-1 win. 2 early runs, Cueto with 7 innings and the bullpen is as advertised.

    5-2 good guys. Reds come back from being down 2-0 to score 5 unanswered.

    Phillips singles, Cozart bunts him to 2nd, Votto walks, Ludwick doubles.

    Reds eek one out.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I think the Reds jump on him early and score a pair in the first two innings.

    I just don't see the Giants scoring in this one. Cincinnati has a much better bullpen than the Giants, and I can see that being the difference in the series also. 3-0 Reds
