I would think that they can contend for a wild card. However playing the Brewers, Cubs and Cardinals 18 times each is going to be tough.

Thatís why they probably only get 80 wins. However, you canít be too upset with that when thereís a lot of high level talent still coming through the Farm System.

I think getting to 500 will be a big accomplishment for this group in this division. If they contend for a wild card, that would be amazing. Realistically, they are a year or two away from making a post season run of any kind.

80+ is realistic.

So Manfred will be the Grand Marshall at the parade. Thought for sure Marty would get the call. Probably next year.

I can understand why fans would curb their enthusiasm some, but it's baseball, and teams can come together quickly. Last year, the Brewers, A's and Rockies all won over 90 games, and I'm pretty sure no one expected that.
Now alot of things would have to go right for this team to make the playoffs, but I really do feel that they've poised themself to do so.

All 3 of those teams had a record improvement trend going into last season and the Brewers and Rockies won 86 and 87 games respectively the previous year. The Reds should be much improved, but have been stagnant in the win column 64 to 68 over the last 4 years.

I donít understand why ppl buy into this worst to first myth. Itís always about incremental improvement. It doesnít happen to often where teams donít make the playoffs then win the WS the following Yr.

It still seems like they have too many OF's on the roster.

Although, judging by the amount of free agents still available, I am guessing moves are still going to happen throughout the entire league.
