    Wayne Krivsky has managed to turn this team from a offensive juggernaut to one of the worst hitting teams in baseball in less than a year. Impressive.
    Because all of those homeruns were winning us so many games, right?

    You don't have to score 11 runs a game, if you can catch the ball.

    true this team will look different offensively.However , people forget this team went into a major slump for the last month.with decent #'s during that stretch,our offense would have looked alot more respectable.You would have to think Dunn and EE if not traded will supply 200-230 rbi.Jr would supply 70-90.
    This of cousre barring trades.
    most teams have at least a big 3 in the heart of the order.(stl=pujols,rolen,edmonds) which we would have in the above mentioned.
    i still would like to see another stick but overall, i like the signing.

    I agree Matt, the Reds may not look as sexy on the field next year without all the monsterous homeruns, but defense and pitching wins ballgames. We still have a lot of areas to fix, but this is a great first step in my opinion

    You're right. Godawful offense and good defense/pitching is going to win us even more games... Better defense and pitching is great. But sacrificing offense from a team that scored 749 runs last year is not the recipe for success.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    You're right...this will conclude the offseason for the Reds.

    All done.

    Over.

    It's better to hope for clutch hitting than to hope for clutch pitching or defense.

    I wouldn't call Jr, Dunn, Ede, phillips in the middle of the lineup as Godawful. we won't be as strong offensively as we have been in the past, but we'll be a little bit better rounded

    I understand that during Reds games they let the other team bat.
