Yes, it's a tough job ahead of him. And the tough thing going into next year is that his two expensive corner OF which apparently are in low demand are going to be VERY difficult to replace next year. I hope Hopper/Freel aren't the starting LF next year, but that could very well be possible, due to lack of better options.
The Reds really don't have a surplus of anything to trade, other than perhaps pitching prospects. I'm starting to think that Walt may have to trade Homer and Thompson in order to shore up the lineup.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
