The glass:

1/2 empty: Stewart could be quite a pitcher down the road, Roenicke seemed to be a decent reliever and EE could end up hitting ok. And Rolen could go back to his gimpy ways.

1/2 full: Defense is upgraded tremendously--3b is better and Votto won't have to work as hard at 1b. The Reds still have lots of prospects to develop and/or trade. Rolen is a much more consistent hitter than EE and makes LF easier to fill (no need for as big a bat as before).
