    And Cueto's back.

    I'm optimistic, but honestly, I'm very nervous about both of these.

    This.

    The 2013 Reds are loaded with enough pitching to sustain a number of starting/bullpen setbacks, experiments and tweaks. But I'm afraid the offense couldn't handle another 2 months without Joe Votto. A full season of prime Votto makes them the best team in baseball.

    You stole my answer!

    Other choice: Brian Price's awesomeness (IMO, he's the glue for our pitching staff and it's success this year)

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    The bullpen. How big of an effect will Chapman moving to the rotation have? I think most people are assuming the bullpen will dominate as it did last year. Bullpen's are fickle from year to year, and as currently constructed, this pen worries me.

    Injuries.

    (If this team stays healthy, I have no doubt they'll be a legit WS contender.)
