Reds new rotation is:
Cozart - SS
Phillips - 2nd
Votto - 1st
Pence - LF
Bruce - RF
Herenandez - C
Rolen - 3rd
Sapplet - CF
You know, call me crazy and say that's a lot to give up (the three trades combined), but that would be an absolute sick lineup AND statement. Cueto, Ubaldo and Shields? Sick.
Hunter Pence, in my opinion, while people know he is good, is one of if not THE most underrated outfielder in the game. He is a big time player.. I am a huge Hunter Pence fan.
