Loyal Citizen “Furniture City Red” suggested that we needed to have a prediction thread, and I couldn’t agree more. We’re actually going to have two prediction contests. First, predict the Reds’ final 2011 record; the winner will receive a snazzy Redleg Nation t-shirt. Put your predictions in the comments section below, and we’ll check back in October to see who was the closest.
Prediction Contest #1
Answer all these questions:
–What record will the Reds have in 2011?
Tiebreaker 1: Where will the Reds finish in the NL Central standings?
Tiebreaker 2: Who will lead the Reds in pitching wins?
Tiebreaker 3: How many homers will Jonny Gomes hit?
The second contest will be to predict the Reds record at the All-Star break. The winner of this contest will receive a ticket to the Redleg Nation outing at a Reds game in July (details about that forthcoming).
Prediction Contest #2
–What record will the Reds have at the 2011 All-Star break?
Tiebreaker 1: How many RBI will Jay Bruce have at the All-Star break?
Tiebreaker 2: How many (MLB) wins will Aroldis Chapman have at the All-Star break?
Entries will be accepted until midnight on Sunday. Let’s hear those predictions!
