Somewhat. But he had the Nats contending without. Stratasburg, Gio and Harper. He started the upward culture in DC.
My main reasoning is he knows how to handle Vets and he is now somewhat familiar to some extent of the next crop of Reds players. He had DiDi, H-Rod, Hamilton, LaMarre, Lutz, Vidal, Barnhart, Fellhauser, Smith, Corcino, Cingrani, Lotzkar, Rodgers, Villrreal, Freeman, Hayes, Manno, Partch at some point this year and already has some idea of each players strengths and weaknesses. He'd also be more likely to use them correctly.
I'm probably wrong. But the next manager of the Reds needs to be more position player rookie friendly.
