    Maybe, if Ludwick and Frazier have years like they did in 2012.

    Not necessarily. Votto missed substantial time in 2012. If the Reds can get his production all year, the other two won't have to produce like 2012, but it'd be nice.

    I'm still waiting for Frazier to have a break-out kinda year. He's shown flashes of brilliance here and there, so we know he's capable of solid production. Let's hope he'll stay healthy, get that average up, and show up in the clutch.

    Remember that 470-something foot bomb he hit last year? He's definitely got some pop in his bat at times.

    I'll admit that I've been a Fraxier detractor. Offensively he just has a hard time laying off breaking pitches. If he can improve on that, he will definitely become a better overall offensive player and maybe even break out.

    One game at a time.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    The Reds have a lot of impact player quality talent. But are relatively thin depth wise.

    The good news is that you guys have a few years to "retool" that depth situation while competing for playoff spots.


    I don't think the Cards are as surefire good as many cards fans/media think.

    The 2002, 2004, 2005 teams in STL were surefire loaded clubs. With 2000-2013(save the retool years(07-08) 88-90 win teams give or take things falling in place.

    I think the Reds and Cards are like that right now. With the cards having an advantage because of depth.


    I think your wildcard is Jay Bruce. He has the potential to possibly get down under 150K while walking 75 times and posting a .900OPS+ which would give you two .900OPS+ guys with 65-80 hr between them.
    2002 was a surefire, loaded club?

    Go back and look at the Pitchers on that roster and tell me that that was a "surefire, loaded club". In fact, look at the entire roster and get back to me.
