    This may be semantics, but I don't really think of him as a "sleeper." It seems a lot of folks on the board have high hopes for him and want him in the starting lineup from day 1.

    I would actually pick Aquino as likeliest to disappoint. Not because his is horrible or anything. Just because some are expecting a star based on his insane debut last year, and they're probably going to get Adam Duvall at best.

I think he gets overlooked when most people discuss the Reds rotation, but he showed that's he capable of pitching like a #3 the last 3 months of the season. He really only had one bad start in June which was a game @ Milwakee, and I have my suspicions that they were partaking in some Astros like activities during home games.
    This was my pick as well. I think he takes the next step to becoming top of the line starter.

    I'll go Galvis.....yep yep I'm hoping for Lindor but i think Galvis looked good at the plate when he showed up in Cincy and I'm hoping he's much closer to that than what he was toward the end of the season

    Galvis will have a breakout year after getting out of awful Toronto!

    Galvis was worse in Cincinnati than he was in Toronto:

It would significantly improve the Reds chance to win and would certainly boost his case for Cooperstown.

    Here's hoping you are right about this one.
    Agreed. I'm not super bullish on that prediction but I just think he's got one big year left in him

    He'll get decent playing time since he can play anywhere in the infield

    Mark me down for Tucker. He's going to rake this season.

    A rejuvenated Votto returns to somewhere between 2017 and 2018 form could happen as well!

    I'll go with Bauer on the staff and Votto in the lineup.

    Votto will shock all the naysayers. He will have a monster year. 2017 kinda year.
    Bauer will be what Gray was last season.
    Flops will be Aquino and Gray.
