Nice problem to have with so much pitching talent. Arroyo stays in Cincinnati to be the pitcher with experience. Then from there it is anyones guess. Chapman will be given every opp to start next year. They have big bucks invested in him. Wood has been good, but he will have to step it up. Leake has done nothing wrong to be bumped or demoted. Bailey must prove to be a first half pitcher or he will not be around. Cueto is here to stay and Volquez has to prove his arm control can be found. We have some arms and I would say one of them will be moved to bring in a solid power hitting outfielder to help Votto and Rolen. We will need a good backup third baseman to spell Rolen. He will require more days off next year to stay healthy and in the grove. Plus we need to start giving someone some experience to be the heir to third. Shortstop is Janish's to loose.
