I'm a 100% behind you on this. The Reds biggest need to me isn't a big bat it's guys who get on base at the top of the order. Votto is capible of driving in 125 runs, Phillips a 100, Rolen 75, Bruce 100... BUT only if the top 2 guys can get on. Stubbs and Heisey provide that and Plus Defense which helps supress runs against.
