    Ken Rosenthal: Sky's the limit for the Reds

    Nice article by Ken Rosenthal on the Reds.

    “People are excited around here,” Rolen says. “How good is Cueto? How good is Volquez? How good is Chapman? They haven’t gotten (to their peaks) yet.

    “You look at the Phillies. You know how good Cliff Lee is, Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, Roy Oswalt. We won the division and went to the playoffs last year. And we’re still seeing how good a lot of our guys are going to be.”

    Agree on the standing pat thing. Sure it would have been nice to acquire a Greinke type. But with a long-term view, this team looks very good as is for the time being.

    The interesting thing about the Reds is that, unlike most small market teams, the club has a backlog of MLB-ready talent in AAA at almost every position on the diamond. That kind of depth -- rotational and positional -- has me feeling more comfortable about the team than I otherwise would at this point.

    Great point. I think a Valaika (just one example) is a starter for about 14-16 other teams in baseball. And we have several guys like that who might start in AAA because of the talent at the Major league level

    Depth and a pipeline of talent.

    What a wonderful thing to have after having pretty much none of it for so many years
