If you have not yet seen Sports Illustrated’s NL Central Preview and you’re a Reds fan, you aren’t missing out on much.
The fellas over at SI were kind enough to predict a 3rd place finish from our boys, of course finishing behing the mainstream Cubs and Cardinals.
They were nice enough to include a few sentences about us, which is more then the Brewers and Pirates received. So we’ll give them credit there. You still have to say that Sports Illustrated’s writers are so insanely bottled when it comes to their predictions. No one ever goes out on a limb or changes the field much from the year before. God forbid one of these guys had the DBacks winning the National League pennant for some variability.
Anyways, in case they’re all wrong; we’ve got them on record here.
