The biggest question will be if the Reds trade (or even non-tender?) Stubbs in this offseason. I think he is as good as gone come 2014.
I don't think you can non-tender him. You either deal him in the off-season and sign Juan Pierre to a one-year deal, or hope that he doesn't fully tank next year and deal him then.
