Re: What happens if the Reds get a lot worse in 2007?
IMO, nothing will happen if the Reds backslide to 72-90, because it appears, by the inactivity thus far in the offseason, that the Reds are not making a big push to win in 2007.
I realize that you always try to win, but I think Krivsky's plan is to do it while rebuilding the team, and the entire farm system, to his liking. Maybe in retrospect, being in contention all year in 2006 only slowed down Kriv's plan to remake this team?
I think if the Reds are well out of it by the ASB, some even bigger moves will be made to bring in some young talent. For example, if the Reds are tanking at the trading deadline and Arroyo still pitching well, I'd trade him to a contender for some excellent return, since it's doubtful he will be here past 2008.
