Place yer wish lists here! Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

1. Nothing.

2. Fail to get any sort of return on Hernandez.

3. Acquire a mediocre free agent LF (Ludwick, for example), and declare that we've found our middle of the order bat.

4. Alienate Phillips by not even trying to work out an extension.

5. Enter spring training with no new rotation backups.

6. Leave two or more of Cozart, Francisco, Mesoraco, Alonso, or Frazier in AAA to start next season.

7. Continue to be wishy-washy on Chapman's future.

8. Pick up Cordero's option.

Good luck with number 8...you think he wants to resign with zero offensive support the team has given him this year?

I think there is not enough offensive support in the world to aid in 8 runs allowed in three innings

If they fail to get a legit cleanup hitter, it will be more of the same.

What is a legit cleanup hitter?

30 HR & 100 RBI?

And a better batting average than Jay Bruce.

Someone pitchers fear enough to pitch to Votto. That would be my definitiion.

I gauran-damn-tee ya Reds owners do and they would rather pocket it than pony it up for the success of the organization, they are no different than any other greedy owner in baseball, all in it for making money and nothing else.
