Re: What should be/What WILL be the Reds Opening Day 25 man roster? (predictions etc.
The starting 8?
1B - Hatteberg (for awhile and Votto will win a starting job)
2B - Phillips
SS - Gonzalez
3B - Encarnacion
LF - Dunn
CF - Freel
RF - Griffey
C - Ross
I fully expect to see Maloney, Cueto, and Bailey sent to the minors regardless of performance and I also fully expect Coffey to be released or traded. Castro, one of Wayne's favorites will make the team as will Stanton. You can't beat that veteran presence, can you?
Bray will be lost for the season or at least until the All-Star break, and Majewski will stink up the bullpen so much, he'll be gone by the end of May. Easy predictions, IMHO.
