Every Reds team I can remember that made a dent in the post season had good speed and very very good if not great defense. Until the Reds of this generation can field a team with those quailities plus some solid above average pitching I wont expect them to make the playoffs. So come march if I see Jr in RF and Dunn in LF, I wont have high expectations, Im sorry. As far as the minor league philosophy the Reds have, I like the guys coming up thru A to AA, I would also like to see the Reds in 2008 draft pitchers in the first 6 rounds then go with some guys who have great speed and can make good contact for the next six rounds. I'll probably get slammed by our minor league experts but thats just my opinion.
