really like the young core of reds and hope dusty baker and mangement keep with youth movenment for 09 i want to see how joey votto and jay bruce perform with year under there belt, i want to see full year of chris dickerson in center field, i want to see ryan hanigan as catcher in 09 , course i also want to see brandon phillips batting 6th where i think he could have another 30/30 season and i hope edwin finally turns corner defensively .

starting pitching is in good hands , Aaron Harang, Bronson Arroyo, Edinson Volquez, Johnny Cueto, Ramon Ramirez.

relief pitchers - Francisco Cordero, Jared Burton, Bill Bray, Danny Herrera, Josh Roenicke, Micah Owings,

i would give jerry hairston 1yr deal to keep seat warm for drew stubbs.
give jeff keppinger 400 bats as sub at ss and 2nd base.
sign juan cruz to 3-4yr deal to fill out bull pen .
sign kevin mench too a 2yr deal to platoon with jerry hairston in left field

i know its not flashy but to me 09 should be about young kids , and not about spending alot of money on veterans .
