Just checked the line ups... Mariners are not fielding anyone of note.

You're going to need luck in this one.

Fairly high considering the starting pitching is made up of two 3's, one 4 and two 5's. Unless these guys have miracle years, they ain't going to sniff that number.

i was thinkin the same thing

the thing is they score a lot of runs

but even last year they lost a lot games where they scored 5 or more

The Reds will be a preseason darling for just about anybody wanting to make a splash for the cash in the NL Central...


Their pitching is not up to par, espically playing @ their friendly confines of Great American Park where the balls fly in the Summer Time...

 

They got the bats, sure, but not the pitching.  Most expect a big season from the Reds... not me, though.  Average year.......

 

That being said  -  I think they are *UNDER 86.5* for the year.

lastly  -  I just saw that the MLB has extended their playoff teams from 8, to 10...

 

I think that's awful.   

 

3 division champs, 1 wild card  -  that's all you need.

It actually ain't all that bad  -  just 1 more team from each league.  I don't know what I was thinking...

I think that 86.5 number has to do more with the perception of a weakening division, than the Reds themselves.

I guess the question to ask ourselves is the departure of big names like Fielder and Pujols really worth 8 wins to the Reds?

i was kinda pissed when they gave up Yonder Alonso for Mat Latos...(among others)

Yonder has a ton of potential

they needed the pitching adjustment though

I love having Cueto,Latos,Leake, and Arroyo

hopefully Chapman learned some control in the offseason

that would make a big difference

Nick Masset has been killing us for years

Ondrusek sucked a few big ones last year.

Arrendondo, Lecure, and Bill Bray are some notables

it's definitely gonna be a tough year for the redlegs, I'm hoping for the best but preparing for the worst

I don't know half those names. 

Even if value is present in the Reds win total, do you want to have money tied up for that long, or more importantly... a part of you will be rooting for them to lose every game you watch.
