Couple that with only nominal bullpen improvement, and your proposed team smells a lot like this year's team. I want to be nice, but that's honestly my take on your suggestions.
Darrin Erstad, in particular, is someone I want nowhere near the Reds. Both Denorfia and Freel are far better in-house options.
And while I'd love to get my hands on Correia, Jonathan Sanchez (who's an exceptional prospect), and Griffin, I'd have to suggest that it's unrealistic to think that Votto/Ross would garner that kind of return.
