Josh Willingham would be a great short-term addition. He has been a very good hitter for the last five years. He would like be better than Myers for at least 2013, and if Stanton is off the table, Willingham may be one of the best available options. I just wonder when he is going to start to show signs of age. He will be 34 at the beginning of next year, and I don't know how long his prime will last and when he will start his decline. Either way, Willingham (and Glen Perkins) are great targets for the Reds.
