Re: the Reds coaching staff needs to be accountable!!
Maybe the guys who put the team together need to be held accountable. A CF (Dickerson) in left leaving the team short on production and a minor league OF (Taveras) starting in CF and three more (Nix, McDonald and Hairston) rounding out the bench.
Meanwhile there are 3 or 4 major league caliber relievers in AAA while the team spends its money on Weathers, Rhodes and Lincoln.
Maybe one of those relievers and one of those OF brought in for depth would have been wise, but the overkill created a glut of mediocrity and no resources to pursue something good.
