Re: What to do in the Offseason?
The Reds aren't going to spend much at all this off season, so I think the best that we can hope for is a trade for a young up-and-coming SS (like Brignac or Brandon Wood). I'd also like to see the Reds sign Kelly Shoppach if he's non-tendered to help solidify the catching situation.
As far as the OF goes, I'm actually okay with standing pat. I'd like to see Heisey and Dickerson split time in LF with Heisey assuming a more prominent role in the platoon if he shows that he's the real deal as the season progresses. Stubbs and Bruce would fill out the outfield with Balentien remaining on as the fifth OF. Taveras should be released, and Frazier can marinate in AAA until he's needed.
