    Ludwick, Frasier, Broxton.

    The team could probably absorb an off year from Frasier, but either he or Ludwick needs to be the cleanup hitter.

    Broxton needs to nail down the closing spot to keep the bullpen solvent.

    I guess I'm not worried about Joey's knee. I think the offseason will be plenty of time for it to heal. Likewise, I think (hope) Cueto's back is not a chronic thing.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I think you mean "regress."
    You can also add Bruce and Mesoraco to that list.

    Nah, it's a concern, but the season hardly hinges on it.

    Probably true, we shall see. Do you care to share what you think the season hinges on?

    Sure, health.

    So long as the team stays healthy and players play to the back of their baseball card, this is a playoff team. I feel safe to say it is the most well constructed team the Reds have fielded in my life.

    I really think you all are worrying too much on CF defense. It doesn't matter as much in that park than lets say Petco. If Choo is even just slightly below average at defense in center, there's very little to worry about. The whole package will outweigh any defensive liabilities (IE Lance Berkman in 2011). If you're fear of CF defense is the #1 reason to the success of this season, then you guys will win the WS.

    For me, I think it's starting pitching depth and health of the rotation. There isn't a whole lot of depth there and I expect the Reds to regress to the means as far as injuries go to their arms.

    We're six deep in major league arms with two of our top prospects sitting in AAA. What kind of depth are you looking for?
