    #1 - Will Homer Bailey win 15 or more games?
    Yes. Bailey is in a contract year and his confidence level is at an all-time high.

    #2 - Will Joey Votto hit 30 or more HR's?
    No. I'm not fully confident his legs are all there. It may take him a while to get going, but I expect 50+ doubles.

    #3 - Will Jay Bruce drive in 100 or more RBI?
    Yes. Bruce has improved his RBI output every year and I expect him to top his 2012 total of 99.

    #4 - Will Ryan Ludwick once again finish with 25 or more HR's and 75 or more RBI?
    Yes. Although he will get a little more playing time I don't see Ludwick drastically improving upon his 2012 numbers.

    #5 - Will Brandon Phillips win a Gold Glove?
    No. Unfortunately I think a lot of the NL Managers don't like Brandon's flashiness. Personally I think it's great for the game and I wish there were more players like Brandon Phillips and Brian Wilson.

    #6 - Will Shin-Soo Choo score 100 or more Runs?
    Yes. He finished with 80+ the last 2 years with Cleveland, no reason to think he can't get 100 in Cincy.

    #7 - Will Jonathan Broxton have 35 or more Saves?

    Yes. Broxton is a really good Closer.

    #8 - Will Todd Frazier finish with 20 or more HR's and 65 or more RBI?

    No. Due to his unorthodox swing I think Frazier could struggle at times, but I still think he can come close to those numbers.

    #9 - Will Mat Latos finish with 15 or more wins and 200 or more Strikeouts?

    Yes. Really not much of stretch to see Latos accomplishing both of these in 2013.

    #10 - Will Aroldis Chapman get 12 or more wins?
    Yes. Although limited by innings, he will be the best Starting Pitcher the Reds have in 2013.

    His swing isn't unorthodox...his stance is though...just a quick reply...I'll answer later to the others...

    Admittedly its not always unorthodox, but he definitely punches or throws his bat at the ball frequently. His batting stance is like a corkscrew. Bottomline, if it works, it works.
