Re: What if we stand still?
I think that might be the best choice. Belisle and Bailey are likely to show a lot of improvement next year, and we are likely to see both Cueto and Maloney the second half of the year. Our young bullpen pitchers could be considered to be much better next year, and I would prefer our outstanding prospects to stay on the Reds. There really is not much out in free agency, and I would be very hesitant to trade any of our top prospects unles we got a #1-#2 back in return.
