This may be premature as 2012 is still going strong, but what do you think the Reds are going to try to do over the off-season to improve the roster?

I think we have a new centerfielder.

What are we going to do at 3rd base? Is frazier really the answer?

Who do you think new CF may be?

I think he is.

Stubbs, however, is not.

I think Frazier may be the long term answer. His near ROY performance this year has to be rewarded with a real oppy next year to be The Guy at the hot corner imho. Give him that oppy and he probably makes everyone look smart. If he doesn't, of course, you change course but not after just a month or two.

Feel like we need another proven bat but where? Guess CF.

If Ludwick opts out of his contract and signs elsewhere that would be a huge hit. I think he comes back. But with money on the line you never know.

Yeah, gotta re-sign Ludwick.

I could also see another LH reliever acquired.

Arredondo isn't it.

Let's hope so.

My question is do the Reds go after somebody or just wait (with Stubbs) for Hamilton to show?

I think Luddy will stay. He's a lifelong Reds fan himself, and while it may all be an act, he seems happy in Cinci. Frazier to 3rd, and an upgrade in CF is necessary--Hamilton maybe? I hate to see Rolen go, but he was more of a hindrance than a help this season. I do hope he stays as a coach tho. I think he'd be good in some sort of teaching role.

Find the major league leader in hitting with RISP.

We need to be defending World Series Champions which, as of this moment, is still a possibility.

I don't think we really have a lot of holes to fill. Our biggest need is still a true lead off hitter. Phillips has done well but he is better suited for the 2 hole. I would love to see Bourne brought in but that's not likely to happen because he is a Boras client and we have Hamilton switching to center. I think we need to find another starter to push the guys we already have.
