The Reds FO and Carl Lindner tried for the first time in several years to IMPROVE the team and they were successful. This team will be much better than in 2004 or 03 or 02 or 01 or 00. It's not a World Series contender by any means and probably not a NLCS contender, but the playoffs are a legitimate opportunity.
Actually, I'd rather they spend like Oakland or Minnesota, but go on believing what you want to believe.
I'm sorry, but this club isn't as good as the '00 team. Ya know, the team that won 85 games.
