    2013 Reds' Season Projections

    With the recent moves, I'd say most of RedsZone's expectations are pretty high for our beloved 2013 Redlegs. How do YOU think they will finish up? Will we still be cleaning up red and white paper from the parade through downtown Cincinnati or will we be heartbroken due to injury and lack of postseason?

    They will make the playoffs. Trying to project more than that strikes me as silly. So rather than come up some arbitrary logic to select them losing in some round of the playoffs, I went with what I hope for, World Series champs!
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    The offseason's for dreaming big, so yeah. Then again, with the makeup of this team, I'll be dreaming big until I can't.

    They should make the playoffs again. As for more than that? They'll have to prove they can take the next step.

    I am with Rick, but without the actual vote. This is a playoff team and a true contender. But strange things happen in the playoffs.

    They will make the playoffs, the rest is a crap shoot, based mostly on randomness.

    I think you guys will win the Wild Card but I forsee starting rotation problems. I think it's unreasonable to expect another season where no starting pitchers get injured. I also feel that you guys will miss Chapman as closer more than some here realize. Your offense will be better though so it should balance out somewhat.

    EDIT: I also picked the Reds to lose in the NLCS. I predict a Reds vs. Cardinals NLCS and I'm not picking against my team

    "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."
