The Reds are built to contend for a WS over the next number of years. Standing put like they did in 2011 would be an utter failure. They need to make a move, need to improve the leadoff spot. They need to get production out of CF. The Reds attendance should see a boost coming off of a playoff run. The FO needs to step up and keep building on 2012.
Totally agree. I think each year they need to consider how much more they could expect out of the team. After a 97 win season, it would be hard to ask the same group to do it again. A few smart upgrades are in order.
