  1. I could see the Reds contending if they were in a weaker division. But I think they’re going to have a real tough time beating out the Cubs for the division and either the Mets or Phils for the Wild Card.

  2. And Dusty batting Willy leadoff despite the .300 OBP.

  3. Yeah, everyone crowing about the Reds always forgets about Dusty. He ruined Harang last season with that retarded relief stunt and he overworked Volquez, sending him from a sub 2 ERA to one in the mid 3s.

  4. Yes, Dusty Baker is the reason Edinson Volquez did not finish the season with a sub-2.00 ERA.

  5. No, but Dusty Baker is the reason Volquez will get hurt this year.

  6. Yeah, because when I think of a tough division I think of the NL Central which has the Astros, Pirates and a Brewers team (sans CC Sabathia and Ben Sheets) in it.

  8. i like the Reds to win 85. probably not good enough to win a wild-card, but close.

  9. sans Cordero, Burton’s the best arm in that pen. Not far behind Cordero either.

  10. You forgot that they have Jared Burton and Arthur Rhodes in that bullpen also. The Reds have one of the most well rounded bullpens in the league.

    It’s funny I remember before the beginning of last season telling my friends that the Rays were going to compete. This year I’m telling them the Reds are.

  11. I don’t mean to nitpick, but Phillips doesn’t really have much pop, especially with that awful .312 OBP last year.
