Only if either one of them consistently get their OBP closer to and or over .400, then they'll give us no reason for concern. Unfortunately these two are the best we've currently got, so we'll have to just go with them for now. Obviously if we're able to upgrade and it makes sense when considering all areas of the them, then you have to do it.
I think that's setting the bar a little high. How many players in MLB even get their OBP over .400? Not every player is an All-Star, but that doesn't mean teams like the Reds should look to replace solid contributors.
