This team has the potential to be very good this year. Harang, Arroyo, Cueto, and Volquez form a solid rotation. Fogg was a .500 pitcher before, so he will be okay and in the wings awaits Bailey. Belisle is also hanging on if Fogg falters or someone gets hurt. The pen has a legit closer and will be much, much better this year.

The offense seems to be really good. Maybe Patterson breaks out this year. Keppinger is a GOOD hitter. Griffey, Phillips, Dunn, and Encarnacion are good. Votto will hit better and if he can't, Hatteburg can for another year. I'm okay with the bench. Very worried about catcher but teams can win with defensive catchers who handle pitchers well (don't know if ours does).

If everyone is healthy on this team, this will be the best Reds teams in a while. If someone gets hurt, there are finally people to plug in. I see a very good team through my rosy colored glasses. For me...Volquez was the final piece.
