    Rank the needs of the REDS, SunDeck style...

    Saw this thread over there, and thought it was a good time for that thread.


    My rankings:

    #1 Dusty turned to dust and swept away.

    #2 See #1.

    #1 A bat for Dusty to use.

    #2 New management if they don't get Dusty a bat when it's so obvious that's what they need while the fans continue to blame him even though they're overachieving, and playing harder than they have in years for him.

    Didn't you read the rules you are only allowed to blame Dusty on Sun Deck. You cannot give him credit under any circumstance and you must finish or start every sentence with "he is the only manager in baseball who would do this." Did you know Dusty is the cause of global warming and the second shooter on the grassy knoll.

    1. They need an actual left fielder who can play every day.
    2. They need a shortstop who can hit, they don't have one on the roster.

    Nonsense. This organization is just loaded with talent, so the fact that we are only one game over .500, and 21/2 out is a disgrace. If we only had a real manager, we could be doing as well as the Mets or the Cubs. If Baker would only bat ( fill in blank) in the number (fill in blank) spot in the line up, we would have clinched the division by now.

    1. Leadoff hitter
    2. Another "good" starter
    3. Whatever position we don't use as leadoff hitter.

    Preferably, I'd like to see Stubbs in CF to begin next year and then a filler at SS until hopefully Cozart is called up.

    1. Make a move for a power hitting RH bat-something that could have been taken care off in the offseason
    2. Don't given up too much on the move-once again a situation that could have been taken care of in the offseason
    3. Spend money in the upcoming offseason
    4. Spend more money in the upcoming offseason
    5. Spend EVEN more money in the upcoming offseason

    The ONLY way to put together a good ballclub in MLB is to actually SPEND MONEY. Something the Reds obviously forget how to do since Marge sold the team to that crazy old fart that had them a few years back. Now we have some crazy delusional tightwaded ******bag that actually thinks this team will win without spending money.

    1. A middle of the order hitter. Preferrably one that can play LF,3B, and not named EE.
    2. Let Janish play. He won't hit much worse that any of the other candidates and with another bonafide hitter in the lineup, it won't be as glaring.

    You have to spend money wisely. Small market teams need to develop their own and then spend money or make trades to add the piece you are missing. If it was just about spending money, the Yankees would have won a world series in the last 5 years.

    Word is Escobar the SS for Atlanta is on the block. I'd explore that possibility.

    Bring up Stubbs and put him in CF. Keep platooning Gomes/Nix in LF. Hope Bruce starts to hit. If EE returns at 3B that could help. If not that should be the spot they try to fill.

    #1 I'm beginning to think Baker isn't a good fit for these in-experienced young players (whether he's a nice man or not.

    #2 better lineups. Tavares in leadoff is a joke and hitting Bruce 7th, protected by AGon, Janish, and Richar does nothing to support a young hitter.

    #3 Add a bat. At least one. A guy who could put up numbers in our park in the second half. Do something to give this team a shot in the arm.

    I agree wholeheartedly with #2 and #3. However, I think that if there is one thing you can't take away from Dusty it is how he handles people, especially in the clubhouse.

    1.We need Gonzo to continue doing a good job being hurt.

    2.We need Taveras to take some lessons from Gonzo on how to get hurt.

    Oh I agree 100% with you. what makes me mad is the FO DID NOT spend the money to add the missing pieces of the puzzle, hence the RH bat the fans were promised. If this team fails I would love to see a movement of fans begin to boycott games and strike outside GABP until something is done.

    Rosie Red and Gapper need to learn how to simultaneously do the moonwalk on top of the Reds' dugout. And then all will be as it should be.
