I know this is a stretch but what I want for Christmas is for the Reds to make the next moves to improve the ball club.

First sign either Hillenbrand or Craig Wilson, then trade for a decent number 3 starter. I think that this would provide depth and give us a solid pitching staff. It would set up like this:

Harang
Arroyo
#3 starter from trade
Milton
Lohse

Our bullpen is already solid:
Salmon
Bray
Majewski
Cormier
Coffey
Stanton
Weathers

then our lineup is decent, but if some players put up numbers in our ball park could be good. I know that is a stretch!

C Ross, Valentin
1B Hatteberg, Hillenbrand/Wilson
2B Phillips
SS Gonzalez/Castro
3B Encarnacion
LF Dunn
CF Griffey
RF Deno/Freel

What do you think.
