    My Reds Christmas list

    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.

    I agree with you completely. before I gave up anything in a trade, I might scour the remaining free agaents one more time and see if i have missed anything as far as a #3 pitcher is concerned. I still would love to see homer bailey force his way into the Reds rotation as a #5. I wouldn't use castro much at shortstop, however. good post. i hope someone is listening...they obviously are not doing much else.

    Who exactly do you plan on trading for a #3 starter?

    Judging by your lineup, you're not planning on it being a big leaguer. That leaves the minors where Homer Bailey, Jay Bruce and Joey Votto are pretty much the only guys who could fetch someone like that. I'm not sure I want to deal any of those guys.

    I don't like any lineup that has Junior in CF. Swap him with Deno/Freel and it's alright.
