    Current players here in 5 years ?

    Which current Reds players will be on this team 5 years from now?

    It's always easy to think the "core players" (who ever you define them to be) will be around a while but then trades, injuries, implosions, finances, age and general life happens and changes everything.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Re: Current players here in 5 years ?

    Oh yea....my thoughts...

    EE
    Philips
    Harrang
    Aurroyo (possibly)
    Coffey (possibly but doubt it)
    Ross (possibly but doubt it)

    This is hard to speculate on, but I would agree w/ your assesment, EE, Phillips are the only fielders, kearns/ dunn are a doubtful to maybe.

    A good way to gauge this is to look and see who is still here from five years ago:

    LaRue, Griffey and Dunn.

    Most to least likely
    EE
    Coffey
    Harang
    Lopez
    EZ
    Kearns
    Arroyo- I think if we win he'll put roots down here, if not he takes a hometown discount to go back to Boston when contract is up

    For some of the omissions
    Dunn- prices himself out of Cincy
    Griffey- retires in 4 years
    Freel- wears himself out playing the way he does
    Catchers- such a demanding position its never a good bet to project them to stay long-term
    BP- Hope I'm wrong but I think this is his Pokey Reese career year
    Bullpen- besides Coffey all these guys are retreads and won't be here in 2 years, let alone 5
    Rotation- Hopefully Claussen can find his form from last year when he gets off the DL but Milton won't be resigned with Homer coming up from the minors in '08

    EE
    Harang
    Phillips
    Either Dunn or Kearns, not both
    Ramirez (I think he'll stick around)
    Maybe Coffey

    Oh... and manos de oro (after another trip to the AL)

    In this day and age, it is really hard to call five years from now.

    But, for fun... opening day line-up for the 2011 season:

    c-Sardinha
    1b-Griffey
    2b-Bergolla
    3b-Encarnacion
    ss-Phillips
    lf-Dunn
    cf-Denorfia
    rf-Szymanski
    p-Bailey

    2011? Griffey would be in his 40s.

    I'm pretty sure Julio Franco will be with the Reds in five years.
