    what we have/what we need for 2007

    As the offseason is officially here i thought i would try to summarize what we have and what we need for 2007:

    C - Valentin vs some righties. Ross or Larue vs lefties/some righties

    1B - Hatteberg vs righties. ( Votto likely starts 2007 in AAA )
    ? vs lefties

    2b/SS - Phillips

    SS/2b - ?. All we have now are Olmedo & B Harris.

    3B - EE

    Utility IF - Castro

    LF - Dunn

    CF - Denorfia or Freel

    RF - Griffey for ~100-120 games with Deno/Freel for the rest

    25th man - who knows. I see us carrying 13 position players and 12 pitchers again next year.

    SP - 1.Arroyo 2.Harang 3.Lohse 4.Milton 5.EZ/Claussen/Belisle
    ( Bailey starts 2007 in AAA )

    RP - Bray, Majik, Coffey, Cormier, Belisle ( if he doesn't start ), Shackelford?, Standbridge?


    Needs:
    1. SS or 2B. It is anyone's guess who this will be.
    2. a right handed platoon partner at 1B. This will likely a free agent such as resigning Aurillia or signing someone like Eduardo Perez/Craig Wilson/Phil Nevin ( I don't see us spending a lot of money here ).
    3. better pitching. A #3 starter would be nice. Bailey MIGHT be that for 2008.
    Someone who can pitch the 9th would also be nice. Bray & Coffey did not warm up to that role in 2006.


    Trade bait ( If you are easily scared or nauseated don't look ):
    1. Ross or LaRue
    2. Lohse or Milton
    3. ? Cormier
    4. Type B and below prospects. I would be shocked and upset if Wayne traded any of the few A prospects we have ( Votto, Bailey, Bruce,etc )

    I would say the Reds need about +125-150 runs.

    Creating a 150 run swing in the run differential will be quite the task.

    most likely impossible without a serious dose of good fortune.

    Wayne will have to remake a sizable chunk of the roster to get close.

    and seeing as he remade a sizeable portion of the roster in 06 without making any progress in that area, I for one am skeptical. However, being able to do that without a serious infusion of talent from your minor league system(which the Reds don't have), is just not going to happen.
