Better defense overall, and a more consistent offense would do wonders for this team. Getting Bruce up here is an obvious step in that direction. It has taken FAR too long to make that step. About time.
You've watched this team for the last decade, and you still say, "Nowhere to go but up"?
Who do the Reds have to call up? How exactly has Arroyo trended anywhere but down the last 5 or 6 months of pitching he's thrown over two seasons? Does Cueto show any signs of "improvement"? Aside from Cordero and occasionally Affeldt, who inspires confidence in this pen?
