    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Not really concerned as much as interested to see how it goes with Frazier and Cozart in year 2, as wlel as Ludwick in left. I have been concerned about the left side of the field the last few years, was happy with Frazier and and Cozart last year and hope we have that question answered now.
    Health/injury is always a concern every year with every team, and not much can be done about that other than hope you have the depth to outlast it.

    Like many, health is a concern, as it is for every team. The rotation escaped last year without any (until the bitter end and we all know what happened there!)

    -Uncertainty about Frazier playing a full 162 and maintaining production. I think 140 or so may be more realistic.

    -Would love to see a leveling of production from Bruce. I love it when he's hot but the team suffers when he tanks.

    -I believe Cozart's production will improve. He's not in the spotlight and I believe he'll benefit from being further down the line-up.

    The thing I see with the Reds is that while Ludwick might be concerning, I think there are enough parts there to still win a ton of games. For me, the 5 things are:

    1. starting rotation health
    2. starting rotation health
    3. starting rotation health
    4. starting rotation health
    5. starting rotation health

    That will be the success or doom of the season. I don't see a whole lot of depth for the Reds in terms of starting pitching and I do not see them having a perfect season of starting rotation health like they did last season.

    Just one concern for this season.

    Will I be able to get World Series tickets at GABP this season without paying and arm and a leg?

    First and foremost injuries, but that's a given for every team in the league. For the Reds in specific: (in no order)

    1) Mesoraco flames out

    2) Leake can't put it together, affirming that he is a 4.50+ ERA guy

    3) The league makes the necessary adjustments to Frazier and he Stubbs (v.)

    4) Chapman gets into off field problems

    5) Broxton is leapfrogged by Hoover/Arredondo making his contract an absolute waste.
