Think it will make much difference? Doubtful. It leaves five worse hitters all in a row.

The Reds need a couple of additional good hitters. The batting order is not the real fix. It's a band aid, a minor upgrade.
What's wrong with a minor upgrade? If it gets you two-ish more wins, you do it, right? The 1999 team was a minor upgrade away from the post-season.
