Re: Bright Future in Reds Country
Harang and Phillips are as good as they are going to get...ok I'll go along with that but how much better do you want them to be? Also agree that Homer is going to get much better. I don't understand why you think Hamilton isn't going to get much better. The guy has been out of baseball, comes back and is contending for rookie of the year. Had he been playing all along I would agree, but given his situation there has to be alot of room for improvement. This group looks like a pretty good foundation to build on. yes there are some holes to be filled but you also can't have superstars at every position...least not on the Reds budget.
