Re: The Start of a new ERA - DUHsty adds to his Lineup "Requirements"...
It is about looking toward the future. I think it is a good sign that the Reds are making decisions based on building for next year and beyond. While you want to win every game this year, the rest of this season doesn't matter nearly as much what is best for next year.
The Reds have been lacking a real #3 hitter for awhile, in fact I think that is what this team needs the most. Why not see if Bruce can be that guy for next year. If he doesn't do well, then that means the Reds should try to get one for next year.
And by the way, this is Walt's move too, not just Dusty's. Walt talked about it in the pre game show last night.
