    Likely diagnosis from doc: Blackberry Thumb

    Treatment plan: Rest the hand by putting the phone down, staying off twitter, and absolutely no texting.

    The biggest offensive problem with Cozart is his OB and it's a problem no matter where he bats. The Reds need more guys who don't have to hit 7 or 8.

    The Reds have to get an OF bat, either Choo or someone to replace. Yet that's just running in place. After that, if you want to improve the team's offense the two places screaming loudest for a potential upgrade are C and SS. If we're playing the enough-defense-to-warrant-the-bat game, that line starts behind Brandon Phillips and Todd Frazier.
