They lost 3 games in a row after being up 2-0. They had every opportunity to actually win the World Series this year. I believe another TOR arm would have sealed that fate.
Either way, I'd much rather have a proven guy like James Shields (just an example) than a huge question mark like Hamilton. I would have to be a bigger deal and Shields isn't on the market now, but the Reds need that other guy to go with Cueto and Latos. Maybe Homer steps up and becomes that in 2013.
