    2011 Lineup, guess it.

    Didn't want to steal a previous thread, so I'll start this one. Without trading to get new players, what is our lineup in 5 years (you can do fielding, or batting lineup).

    C- Miguel Perez
    1B - Joey Votto
    2b - Brandon Phillips
    SS - Paul Janish
    3b - Edwin
    LF - Jay Bruce
    CF - Drew Stubbs
    RF - Austin Kearns (he seems so easy to trade, but I just don't know if it will happen) If not him, then hopefully BJ Szymanski has turned it around and is a stud again.

    This is a GREAT defensive lineup. Would be very interesting to see this team field.

    Rotation:
    Bailey
    Harang
    Arroyo
    Travis Wood
    Elizardo

    Closer: Coffey
    Middle Relievers: Justin Mallett, David Shafer, and four 38 year olds with tired arms.

    All from the farm, no players from trades or free agency?

    Re: 2011 Lineup, guess it.

    C - Tatum
    1B - Votto
    2b - Phillips
    SS - Olmedo
    3b - Encarnacion
    OF - Bruce
    OF - Stubbs
    OF - Denorfia

    SP - Bailey
    SP - Dumatrait
    SP - Ramirez
    SP - Ward
    SP - Cueto

    It's much harder to find good position players in Reds system than pitchers. Which is why guys like Denorfia and Olmedo who have almost no service time now could still be with club.

    And there are still a lot of potental pitchers with no service time who could impact - Pelland, Kelly, Wood, Chick, Shafer, Watson.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Re: 2011 Lineup, guess it.

    Some of the lineups being posted here scare me.

    I want no part of future that is going to be hinged on Rey Olmedo, William Bergolla, Dane Sardhina or Miguel Perez.

    Or Tatum.

    I'm hoping the offense will feature Encarnacion at 3B, Phillips at SS, Lopez at 2B, Votto at 1B with an outfield of Dunn, Stubbs, and Bruce. I would target Kottaras of San Diego as the catcher of the future. Obviously it probably won't pan out that way, but I can dream can't I?
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Yeah, Miguel Perez was by default for me. We have ZERO catchers in our system. Maybe Ross will still be around???

    I'm hoping the Reds have some players that we've never heard of. Some of thes "young" guys are going to be on the wrong side of 30 in 5 years.

    Re: 2011 Lineup, guess it.

    Sadly I dont see Arroyo being around in 2011, can't see him resigning with a NL team like the Reds once he's up for FA.

    My team looks like this:
    2B Phillips
    SS Lopez
    LF Dunn
    RF Bruce
    1B Votto
    3B Encarnacion
    CF Stubbs
    C ??????

    SP Bailey
    SP Cueto
    SP Harang
    SP Wood
    SP Watson

    CL Coffey

    As much as Ive enjoyed what the Lizard has done this season, I can't sat I see him being a dominant force for the next five years. We've had too many of these young guys come seemingly out of nowhere, enjoy success for a few months, and then fade into oblivion (see: Acevedo, Os.Fernandez, Ja.Fernandez, etc.). If there is one guy in the current rotation I could see sticking around for the next five years, its Harang. Hopefully we can acquire another frontline type to team with him, Homer and Cueto/Wood. The need at catcher will be filled from somewhere outside of the organization. And if I had to keep two of the three between Dunn, FeLo, and Kearns, I keep the first two (which is not neccessarily cost-prohibitive given the new ownership.) Phillips and Encarnacion are hopefully shoe-ins for the next five years.
    Go BLUE!!!

    I honestly can't see Lopez playing SS next year, let alone in 5 years.

    I'd have no problems switching him and BP, would you?

    One thing thats not lacking from that lineup is defense, so with FeLo playing 2B I honestly don't think you're losing that much.
