    For some odd reason, I see Buster Posey winning back to back MVP's.

    1.) Reds set a team record in run differential. (Anyone know what it is btw?)
    2.) The team stays relatively healthy through game 4 of the W.S.
    3.) Joey Votto will win the triple crown.

    Now THAT'S bold. I have a hard time seeing him getting the dingers. But I'm game.

    Had to think of something, and that was the first random thing I can think of.

    I'm actually quite excited about this. I saw him rip a single up the middle with the Bats and he appeared to have a pretty nice looking swing.

    New Bold Prediction: Chapman launches a 400+ foot homer next year.

    1.The Reds team ERA jumps up .25-.50 runs.

    2.The Reds still win the division by 5+ games.

    3.Billy Hamilton comes up at some point in late August, plays off of the Reds bench most of the time and wins a few games with his legs on the base paths. Then he makes the playoff roster and does similar damage in the playoffs (maybe not wins games, but scores runs that others wouldn't have).

    Benihana.... I don't see any of yours happening lol

    1. Zach Cozart puts up a .760 OPS with 20 home runs and squashes any doubt that he's the long-term shortstop.

    2. Ryan Hanigan is dealt at the deadline and I cry because he's one of my 3 favorite players.

    3. Aroldis Chapman starts Game 3 of the World Series.

    Re: 3 Bold Predictions for 2013

    Reds fight injuries all year but get all the horsestogether for a final push and win barely with 93 wins. They are dissed going into playoffs but get hot at the right time but lose a great heartbreaker Series to Anaheim 4 games to 3.

    Chapman misses 2/3ds of the season with shoulder soreness but when he returns in August late his pitching is a key to putting them over the top(as a starter)

    Cingrani, Corcino, LaMarre, HRod and Hamilton all play major roles due to injuries

    Mat Latos wins Cy Young/21 wins 200+ Ip and Ks and anchors the rotation all season

    Re: 3 Bold Predictions for 2013

    Here is the only bold prediction I can think of so far:
    1. Someone realizes that the Reds have not won the Series since the days of Schotzie and releases a St. Bernard onto the field at GABP so that it can "do its business." This cures any thoughts of a curse and the Reds steam through the playoffs.
