Don't make the mistake of thinking low slugging means productive. This team needs guys that get on base and slug the ball, duh. Cabrera does neither.
As of right now the future success of the Reds offense depends on Gomes, Rolens back, and whoever hits 2nd.
I'm not exactly optimistic about this offense.
