Definatley nice to hear we are trying.
Agree that Gomes in RF and Willingham or Wigginton in LF would be more of the 2008 style defense, but none of those guys is as bad as Griffey was in 2008. I can't really see any combination making the OF defense as bad as 2008 unless the team would bring Griffey back.
They really need to target SS or a RH half to team with Bruce. Those are the only spots where a role player type would be a real improvement. As long as Taveras stays on the bench, they can really only upgrade the other spots by bringing in a real star caliber player. The role player types mentioned in this article don't seem to be much of an upgrade over the guys already here. They do add depth though and it would have been nice to have while EdE and Votto were out. Getting depth for the second half is a decent thing to do as long as it only costs expendable non-core talent.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
