Re: Trade time: Bruce and Leake for a cleanup hitter
Some interesting ideas are surfacing here. Somehow, the Reds' team chemistry just isn't quite jelling and I wonder if this group really can rise to championship caliber. That said, they sure were fun to watch during that Post-Votto injury run last year. However, they still have roller-coaster tendencies and I still think Bruce is too inconsistent to be a #4 or #5 hitter.
The bottom line: I think this team is going to need a shake up this year. The Reds cannot afford to wait another year to get it together.
