    Here's a question

    Who on the reds 40 man roster is likely to be on a world series winning team sometime in the future? (Note that team doesn't have to be the reds.)

    Justify your decision as you see fit.

    Edwin Encarnacion, He is very young, very good and has a long career ahead of him.

    adam dunn.....he is going to be too expensive for the reds. i think he will eventually sign as a free agent with (or perhaps be traded to) one of the big money teams. big money doesn't necessarily translate into wins, but it sure doesn't hurt. i would be surprised if he was with the reds past the length of his current contract.

    Very good choices.

    Brandon Phillips is mine. Good middle infielders tend to last a long time. Phillips is atheletic and only 25. He shows flashes of defensive excellence. As he gets his feet under him, he could turn into a really good defensive player who still has some offensive value and those guys play forever. On the other hand, if he really gets his bat under him with a bit of power and his glove doesn't improve, he could become a Todd Walker type player and...well, those guys are pretty valuable too.

    I'd say Bray, because a left handed reliever with a pulse can have a very long career. Either Bray will turn out to be an above average reliever and price himself out of town, or he'll be mediocre and go the journeyman route.

    Contenders are always looking for LH relief help.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I am going to say Arroyo because he will leave or be traded if the Reds ever fall out of it in the stretch run in future seasons to a contended to be their 4th or 5th starter, and then win it all once again....
