    I am willing to bet we don't see much of Stubbs and Gonzo in the same line up. Gonzo is out of here at the end of 09, and I would bet Stubbs gets a call up around mid to late 09.

    You don't think Carl Lindner will step in and sign an aging shortstop to an above market deal for 3 more years rather than allowing him to be traded to a large market for prospects?

    Oh wait, nm.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: I just can't wait until

    I have a hard time seeing the Reds keep all of their top hitting prospects as left handed hitters. We may see a trade for a Right handed hitter of approximately equal value to a team that needs a left handed bat, (see 2007 Reds for reasons why you don't want your "stars" to all be left handed). That being said, the above teams would/will terrorize right handed pitching.

    How about the rotation as well?

    Arroyo
    Harang
    Bailey
    Cueto?
    Dumatrait?
    Livingston?
    Thompson?
    Milton?

    I dont wanna burst your bubble but at one time I couldn't wait for Paul Householder, Duane Walker, Eddie Milner, Harry Spillman, Dave Van Gorder, Tom Lawless, Frank Pastore and Paul Moskau to hit the big club in the early 80's. They were the new BRM and there was nothing but good days ahead for the Reds with this cant miss bunch.

    The reality is I cant get excited about ANY prospect (Homer included) until they show over a course of time that they can play in the bigs.

    I was going to say that there was a time when we couldn't wait to see this lneup:

    C Sardinha
    1B Votto
    2B Freel
    3B Encarnacion
    SS Lopez
    LF Dunn
    CF Denorfia
    RF Kearns

    This may be why RedsZone has such a hard time with Wayne Krivsky's deals for the likes of Hatteberg and Conine. We love those young guys who come up through our system with decent numbers, like Jim Bowden loves his five-toolers.
