If the Reds are even somewhat considering going into next year with an offense consisting of Frazier, Cozart, Hamilton and the pitcher as part of their everyday 9 then they are crazy.
You think the offense was frustrating this year? If that is the plan I have very little hope for next year.
This is the reality the Reds will live in the next 5-10yrs being a "small market" team. When you fork over $35mil to your other 3 position players you have to have home grown guys step up at the other spots.
When they committed to Votto and BP they were banking on guys like Frazier, Hamilton and Mez being at least average MLB players.
They won't find many teams willing to give up Choo and money again.
