It remains #1 for me. The team can improve the defense simply by deploying players already in the fold. And I'm not one who thinks it makes sense for a team like the Reds to make high profile bullpen moves. What the team needs to do on that front is start collecting arms. In the meantime, acquiring more starting talent remains critical. Whether it's biding time to get into the Dontrelle Willis market or snatching up a prospect from a franchise that needs a major league bat today (hello L.A., Houston and Minnesota), I recommend monomania.
