Re: Jay Bruce #1 on BA Hotsheet and Francisco in the team photo
Here's another Reds related question:
Q: Chris from Gaylord, MI asks:
With so many great players coming through the minors. When do you see the reds contending? When will we finally see Bruce and Bailey?
A: Matt Eddy: Playing in the NL Central, the Reds could conceivably catch lightning in a bottle and contend in any season. And you can't write them off this year, either. Dunn won't slug .413 all year, and Bruce should give them a boost when he gets called up.
Matt Eddy: For the Reds, the stars seem to be aligning for 2010. By that time, Cueto, Volquez, Bruce, Votto and Baileyóbarring injury to any of themówill all have one to two seasons of experience. And Dunn and Griffey will have been traded for younger players. Harang will be exiting his theoretical peak, but then his career arc has been so unconventional that it's anybody's guess what he'll do.
