    I want a solid #1 starter also. But why can't teams like the Reds, and so many others, afford them? That is the question that MLB should be addressing.

    Where did all the available #1 starters end up this winter? Did the Reds, or any of the other teams even have a chance of obtaining them?

    The improvements to this BP will go a long way to helping this team.

    It's one thing to add some players to key need positions. It's another to actually add high-caliber talent.
    Now I do think some of these moves are improvements over last season. But, it'd be nice to get a few marquee players instead of always going the low-budget and/or over-the-hill route.

    That's where his value lies. I can say with 100% confidence that at least one of those youngsters is going to be a complete disaster. I'm glad we're not commited to putting all 4 in the rotation. I hope DanO can bring in another vet starting pitcher.. because if we only have to use two of those youngster candidates, that would be good. We'd have a chance for 2 of them to be passable next year.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I won't argue the point that MLB needs to address the revenue disparity among teams. You are completely right in that respect.

    On the other hand, I think that the reason that the #1 starters ended up with larger market teams is that the small market teams think with small minds. The Reds could have afforded Clement. They chose to take the small market route and sign several lesser players instead of one really good one. Would it have made a difference for 2005? Probably not, but Graves comes off the books after next year. Larue and Jimenez will not be around for 2006, either. There is the money for another top flight starter. Now you have two. Hopefully, a Claussen, Gardner or Paully would be ready to do some good things by then, too.

    I think he will outperform them but he doesn't get us into the post-season, now or in the future. Pass.

    no. the "whole picture" is the team that is on the field when the season starts. there is still a lot of time for DanO to makes moves. whether he will, or if so, if those moves are any good is another story......
