Going into 2008, here are my 3 biggest questions about this team for 2008. What are your 3 biggest questions about the team?
1. Who will fill the starting rotation's 2 open spots (assuming Harang, Arroyo and Belisle are healthy)? I know who the top candidates are, but right now that I don't know if the Reds will have either blossoming talent or sub-MLB performances.
2. Who will hit leadoff? I though Hamilton was that guy, when he was healthy. Now it seems as though Freel is back in that role - but can he fill this for 140+ games? and for the long-term? What happens when Bruce is ready for the majors and this sends Freel to the bench?
3. What impact will Baker have? Does he have that ability to motivate and inspire the team?
