    I'm excited to see what Bailey and Cueto can do, and I'm very excited about Votto and Jay Bruce. If Perez is as good of a defensive catcher that everyone says then he will be just perfect for the 2010 team.

    Who know maybe in 2-3 years the REDS can catch fire like the Tigers did in 06.

    by the rules of it all, anyone on the current team has to be projected as a part of the future team. So even if the odds are we wont have Dunn or Arroyo in 2010, they are applied to the list becuase they are current Reds.

    As I posted on another thread, I wouldn't mind seeing this as our future team. The only changes I would make, as I don't see Arroyo here for the longterm, would be to eventually trade Bronson (maybe next year at the trade deadline) for a top-flight SS prospect and some young pitching. Maybe deal him back to the Pirates for Zach Duke and Jack Wilson? That may be too much to ask. At the very least I believe we should be able to deal him in a Suppan-Sanchez type deal.

    Harang, and to a much lesser extent, Dunn and Phillips should be locked up for the long term by the end of this year. Everybody else on this team I believe is already signed through 2010. Obviously as with any roster projected three years into the future, this squad is based on a lot of assumptions (all of our top eight prospects pan out to major league starters- something that most assuredly won't happen, with the most realistic flameouts being Loo, Stubbs, Cueto/Wood and Watson- in that order).

    That said (and assumed), without Arroyo, I think this 2010 team could be a SS and a FA #3 Veteran starter away from championship contention.

    That was my 1st thought when I looked at that team. In all reality I hope there is some other players here because if we are just going to go from our farm system - well, that's probably not going to do it, but that being said this is the strongest prospect list I"ve seen in awhile from the Reds.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    Go back to 2004. Project our 2007 starting lineup. Raise your hand if you had Hatteberg, Alex Gonzalez, David Ross, Brandon Phillips, Bronson Arroyo or Kyle Lohse on that team.

    Sure, it's kind of fun to do, but it's rather pointless.
    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.

    What about Bill Bray? If he does happen to become a really good closer then why not keep him around?

    Best Infield Arm - Juan Francisco

    Isn't he the host of Sabado Gigante?

    I would love that projected lineup for 2010. Sadly, it does not fit into the gritty veteran schematic that Krivsky has so foolishly embraced. I fear Rich Aurillia will be making his third or fourth stint with Cincy by 2010.
    Stop! Heisey time!

    Perez won't be in the majors in 2010 and he most certainly won't be with the Reds. He'll be two years into his new career as a minor league journeyman.

    Perez's inclusion just shows how bad the Reds catching development has been.

    Talk about barren. The Reds catcher of the future is someone the team released just a few short weeks ago.

    They'd better take a catcher with one of the team's high picks this year, and hope he pans out. Maybe they should draft two.
