Re: The Reds can't offer a long-term contract to a player that is hitting .229 in Jun
FA pitchers alone is not the answer, but some are and continuing to build this team around the offense has gotten us NOWHERE despite how great the individual talent may be. Pitching and Defense should be a target spending area this offseason, even if it's sign and trade type of deals. We have a lot of good young talent on the offense side for the next several years to build around. Who? How about Bruce, Votto, Phillips, Keppinger, EE (If we keep him) and thats not including the talent comming up this year or next in Valaika, Frazier, Cumberland, Alonso. You put top notch pitching with that young offense and yes, we have a team capable of winning. If we just keep running out washed up pitchers, crappy bullpens etc, it won't matter how good our offense is, it won't WIN. Winning is more important than any individual accomplishments, period.
