    Willis, Hermida, Renteria and Lewis. Time to throw down with NL Central in 2011.


    Bill James likes Lewis in 2011. He has him posting this slash line: .276/.353/.414/.768.

    “These two players address a couple of needs we had identified for our club,” Jocketty said. “Edgar is a veteran middle infielder who we expect to have a positive influence on our younger players, and he is a proven winner. Fred gives us a left handed bat capable of playing all three outfield positions, with speed and a lot of experience leading off.”
    Raise your hand if you thought going into the off-season that Edgar Renteria and Fred Lewis were the two missing pieces to the puzzle.

    Disasterous offseason. Kind of embarrassing.

    I love the signing and the money, and I like the off-season so far. There was just no good fits in the Reds budget to really improve. And while I know some still are pushing to deal an arm, that's something you don't force. I don't mind letting this team take the field opening day and then looking at that route a few months in when the picture is a little more clear...

    With Lewis now around and able to at least make due in center if need be, I'm really hoping Hermida can have a good spring and make his way on the roster instead of Heisey. That would at least give us one lefty bat off the bench.

    A platoon partner for Gomes in LF against RHP. He can lead off those games too, which is a big plus. I've always liked him as a solid 4th outfielder, platoon partner. All around decent, but not great at anything. A bargain at $900K

    Ditto

    31 Doubles Production for 900,000 is relatively a steal

    Big fan of this signing, as it takes AB's away from Gomes vs. righties. Lewis has a career .354 OBP against right handers and I can live with that coming out of my lead-off spot.

    Vs. Right

    Lewis LF
    Phillips 2b
    Votto 1b
    Rolen 3b
    Bruce RF
    Stubbs CF
    Hanigan C
    Janish SS
    Pitcher

    Vs. Left

    Phillips 2b
    Renteria SS
    Votto 1b
    Rolen 3b
    Bruce RF
    Gomes LF
    Stubbs CF
    Hanigan C

    Not overwhelming but not too shabby.

    I see Lewis and Lance Nix light, so to me it's not that big of a deal.
