I was joined this week by Jason Linden to preview the 2018 Cincinnati Reds season, on the eve of Opening Day. The topic of conversation: why the Reds are going to make the playoffs this year. We also made a bunch of predictions about 2018, including a guess about the Reds’ final record (you’re gonna like that one).

Music for this episode provided by Freekbass, a big Reds fan and a friend of Redleg Nation.

  1. Man I wish I had your optimism! The pitching is just so unreliable in my eyes. No one in the rotation has a track record of pitching an entire season productively and in good health. Outside of Iglesias and Hughes (and maybe Hernandez), there is really no one in the bullpen with a proven track record of consistent success in the majors. I just don’t see how this equates to a .500 team.

    I would love so much to be wrong. I am encouraged by our lineup and I think we’ll score some runs (even more so if Winker leads off every day). And as long as we go into next offseason with a CLEAR idea of which holes we need to fill via trade or free agency, I’ll consider this a successful season.

    Regardless of what happens, I’m excited for baseball.
