Re: Reds Standing firm.
I think if people really think about it, they will realize that 2009 is the year we will really challenge for the playoffs. I expect Griffey will have his option year bought out, Hamilton and Bruce will be in the outfield, Votto will have an outstanding rookie year, Bailey and Cueto will be ready to help the Reds to the playoffs, and all the other things will come together. We simply need to get a couple free agent starting pitchers to tide us over until then. I would start with Livan Hernandez and Bartolo Colon.
