    Anyone who says "plate discipline can be taught" probably hasn't played baseball. Or watched very much of it. IMO that is a natural ability.

    Re: Where are the Reds Going?

    Look at the Reds at ML level. They have 2 solid vets and 3 stud young kids in their rotation. They have several more solid young kids who will compete for rotation spots over the next five years.

    On the other hand, the ML offense is struggling to score runs and there looks to be few if any advanced hitting prospects in our system. Given that, why wouldn't you go for the most advanced bat? We need firepower. And there are always ways of making the positions work out at the ML level. That's why they have trades. You pick the stud bat and sort the rest out later if you need to.
