Re: Needs and Luxuries: Cincinnati Reds
Interesting comments. I get the impression he's saying poop or get off the pot. Its pretty clear the Reds need another legit front line starter to make a serious push, but that's going to be expensive to do. If the worst case scenarios play out like he presented and Dunn and Griffey are done after '08, we're only going to digress again. Unless we get another front line starter we will not compete this year. As long as we can keep Dunn or at least acquire an OF/hitter of his caliber than we should be ok for '09 and on. However, that's only assuming that the pitching prospects pan out as well.
