I think they are starting to work on the Bats a bit too with Redmond, Paul (although he's now in Cincy). I'll be interested to see how Walt deals with minor league FAs in the winter to fill holes at Louisville that promotions won't cover. I wouldn't think the Reds wouldn't want next year's promoted players playing in a losing atmosphere. There weren't any real prospect in Louisville this year so it didn't matter. The emphasis could be on Pensacola and Bakersfield. Or do you think they give a flip at all about that?
