The bones of a good staff are in place. They need to get rid of some obvious driftwood and keep bringing along the real talent that is close, and make some more deals that emphasize quality arms in return and the corner that is currently being turned will actually get turned. Watch and see.
If the Reds pitching turns around it will be because Jocketty got aggressive and did what he's done so many times in the past.
