That the Reds need a true #1 ace type pitcher to compete for a World Series title. They have proven they can get to the playoffs wit what they have. 5 #3 caliber starters in there rotation. But the Phillies are proving to them right now that in order to wn championships you need a ace. That has to be the Reds #1 priority this off season. Put Cliff Lee on this Reds team an look out. Probably wont happen but in order to win WS titles that has to happen.
Also Phillips has to be dropped in the order,he is not a leadoff hitter at all.
