I’m sorry to do this to you guys, but it needed to be done. I say dumb stuff all the time here at Redleg Nation and you guys make fun of me, so it’s time to turn the tables.
One year ago, we asked you to answer this question: What’s the best-case scenario for the Cincinnati Reds in 2017? A bunch of you chimed in with your answers, and some of them are — let’s be honest — ridiculous.
Okay, okay, we were talking best case scenarios, and not what we actually thought would happen. (Heck, I predicted that Billy Hamilton would be an All-Star in 2017? Remember that nonsense?) But it’s kinda fun to go back and look at our hopes, then compare them with the dreams dashed upon the craggy rocks of the 2017 season. Wait, that’s not fun at all. Never mind.
Earlier this week, just like last year, our resident optimist Jason Linden once again looked at his best-case scenario for 2018. So…after you look at your projections, come back here and let’s do this again, Nation: What’s the best-case scenario for the Cincinnati Reds in 2018?
