Everything he said was dead on balls correct. I'll even go so far as to say the starting pitching isn't as good as everyone thinks either. Harang still isn't the pitcher he was two years ago and Arroyo has two starts where he gave up a bazillion runs in less than two innings. I still think Homer Baily will be in this rotation by seasons end.
I am encouraged with the moves Walt Jocketty has made. He obviously saw something in Taveras and Hernandez that a lot of us didn't. Even the role players he's brought in have produced. He's done a better job than I expected. I think the Reds are still a year away from seriously contending for the long haul. I hope we don't trade away the farm in July for a rental player that will give us a chance to make the playoffs one year. I'd much rather holdout and deal for or sign an FA SS and a LF this offseason.
The thing I am most encouraged by is the fact that winning seems to matter to the players in Cincy again.
