I thought a series win against the Cubs was a good time to list reasons why the season isn’t over. We are 1/10 of the way through the season now, but…

Joey Votto is going to hit more than 10 home runs (he currently has one).

So are Brandon Phillips and Drew Stubbs.

Ryan Hanigan and Jay Bruce are not going to have OBPs below .300

Mike Leake is not going to have an ERA over 6.00

Mat Latos is not going to have an ERA over 8.00

Aroldis Chapman is not going to get all his innings in the pen.

Take heart, fans. The Reds are only two games under. It’s been rough so far, but it’s about to get better.
