    The offense needs to be completely blown up.

    The Reds arguably have 2 players on offense that could be considered acceptable for a Championship team. Bruce and Votto.

    Aside from that, you could make a case for replacing every other position on the team. This group just doesn't seem to have "it" when it comes to playing on the big stage either. They need to be completely shaken up.

    Hamilton will be the CF at some point next year, so that's one position.

    In a perfect world, the Reds can sign Alexander Guerrero and then trade Phillips to LA or whoever the hell cares.

    Frazier is a decent 3B overall and you could argue he's acceptable enough, or you can make just as good a case for upgrading him.

    Cozart needs to be replaced ASAP.

    Ludwick is probably done.

    Hanigan is old and Mesoraco isn't going to living up to his promise.


    They are still a long way off. This team will be held back by their offense as long as they keep this group in tact. It's time for a reset.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Wow meltdown...

    Dat Dude has a lot of flaws mainly he doesn't learn from his mistakes and really doesn't seem to care, played a lot of sports with people like that and didn't really like them.

    Cozart and Frazier are cheap, so they stay..

    Choo can't hit lefties..

    Ludwig is ready for SS...

    Devin needs to be given a full year of 120 games. Hanigan was injured this year.

    And these threads need to be kept to the gamethread or written on a piece of paper and put into a drawer.

    Closed, as this has no hope of fostering productive conversation.

    Phillips doesn't seem to get his head in the game when it matters.

    Cozart is cheap, which is good if they are also a good player. He is not. Frazier should stay, I'll give him that. He comes to play.

    Mostly the team needs a personality change.

    Re: The offense needs to be completely blown up.

    Keep

    Votto
    Bruce
    Choo (if possible)

    Phillips is fine if he bats like 7th. (dusty and mlb network might love his rbis but he's not that good)


    Hanigan has been horrible this year
