So the Reds need right handed bats. Badly.
They have these four young players. Guess which side they hit from? All are doing well this year. All are 22 or 23, not too young to be close to the majors.
Stubbs plays a position of need for the Reds. If he were ready, the open spot is there.
As for Waring, Frazier, Valaika, not sure where they would eventually play. But you'd have to think that the Reds would find a spot for them, as at least a platoon, if they were ready. They are right handed and they can hit.
Shouldn't the Reds be promoting them aggressively? Shouldn't the Reds be settling on defensive positions for Valaika and Frazier? Can any of the four be ready to contribute by 2009? Are they in the Reds' plans or, for whatever reason, are they not real?
