    Thats a great point WOY - Pena is never going to be Vlad.

    But I think, with his learning curve, that he will start to hit for a slightly higher average and will walk more.

    I see his ceilings as the .280-.290 BA, and about 65-70 BB's. When combined with the 40 HR's that he will hit, well, I think we would all take those numbers.

    Of course those are ceilings and not the numbers he will put up next year, but I do think he more a long term answer rather than a long term question mark.

    What I was trying to say, but you conveyed it more accurately and concisely.

    Does anyone else feel like the Grinch in Dr. Seuss' book when his heart grows 3 times in one day? I don't know what the hell DanO is doing, but for some strange odd reason, I trust him. I trust at the end of all these moves, the Reds will be better. I don't know why, as I've never been a big DanO fan, but it appears to me that he is starting to get it. Like someone lit a fire under his butt and said "put a winner on the field...NOW"

    Yeah his average is in the crapper, but it's 57 at bats.
    That would be a trend of crappy winter numbers two years in a row. Maybe he should just go sip drinks with umbrellas in them after hitting in the cage and working out during the offseason.

    Vazquez is expensive and I won't argue that. I do think he has a pretty high ceiling. Higher than anyone I've heard talks about in regards to the Reds. He is a good power pitcher. It was reported that he had problems with his mechanics all year last year which led to the inflated numbers. He also switched to the AL. A move back to the NL with a good pitching coach could do wonders for him. His years in MON weren't too bad.

    Every inning in the outfield for WMP is an important one.

    Plus I'm not "slamming" the kid, I just ran across his numbers this morning. I also respect his power numbers, but recognize that his OPS is too slugging heavy........now.
