Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

"You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It's a weakness to get caught up in either one."
I don't have time to add all the commentary that I'd like, but I'd like to throw a couple things out there:
1. The Reds have some decent catching prospects in the low minors. I'm thinking of Kyle Day (if he can stick to the position) and Jordan Wideman (if his bat continues to progress) in particular. Wideman is particularly young, so he's got plenty of time to figure things out.
2. Justin Reed is a good wild card for center field, but one guy who is often forgotten is Alex Oliveras, who in my humble opinion, is almost equally as good of a prospect. But the guy I like more than both of them is the 5'9" Dave Sappelt.
