If I ran the Reds my 2009 bench would look like this:
Nix or acquisition (LH Bat)
Gomes (RH bat)
Janish (SS when Gonzo can't go or late in the game)
Plus we have Owings as a 2nd RH bat off the bench.
That's a nice bench right there. Compared to some of the three catcher-ed nightmares we've witnessed recently anyway.

I have come to expect those types of scenarios with the Cardinals and it makes me sick." - Lidspinner
