There is still a lot of baseball to play this season. In each of the past 9 losing seasons, the Reds have seen first place, last place and everywhere in between at this early point in the year. But where will they finish in 2010?
I surveyed the editors during the last week of spring training to see how they thought the NL Central standings would look by the end of the season. HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the Redlegnation.com 2010 NL Central predictions from the beginning of the season:
|Place||Team||2010 Wins||2009 Actual Wins|
I expect that weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d see a different answer for our Redlegs if we conducted the same poll Sunday evening. However, this is still the same team for the remaining 149 games of the 2010 season that we thought they were in March, and a losing series to the Pirates doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t change the full season outlook in my mind.
After a couple of nights to sleep it off, I’m still predicting that the Reds break their 9 season losing streak this year.
