    Re: 3 Bold Predictions for 2013

    1. Baker's mini-stroke and accompanying issues tell him this is his last year. He retires after the season.

    2. Frazier takes a slight step back offensively, but Cozart takes a step forward to even it out. Both play well above average defense on the left hand side of the infield.

    3. Homer Bailey shows that last year wasn't an aberration or statistical noise, becoming the Reds' second-best starter.

    Not a particularly bold predition. The chances of him winning exactly 10 games is pretty low.

    lol.

    Although, if he did win more than 10, he would have had to have won 10 at some point in the season, so he would not have failed at doing so.

    2. Ludwick improves on last year's numbers, and plays respectable CF from time to time.
    3. Cueto wins the Cy Young and is All Star game MVP.
    Ludwick can play CF?

    Hey, how about a little originality!

    For #1 to happen, he has to be given a chance...it's past due, imo.
