I think the Reds need to make 2 deals. Veteran bullpen guys are out there. The Reds need to take a minor leaguer or two and go get one. Then they need to make a young hard thrower with late inning/closer potential available for an OF bat. Hoover is probably the guy who would get the most action, but Partch has potential and would be as much as I'd go for Byrd. I'd happily deal Hoover for somebody better. The Reds need to pick-up the vet reliever first though.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
