Does anyone think TLR can somehow win more games than Dusty with the players on the Reds? If so, how would he do this? By batting the pitcher 8th? Look up the teams that TLR took to the World Series and you will find studs like Pujols, Rolen, Edmonds, and Holliday. The Reds have Votto.
You also find teams that worked the pitcher's and had very good plate approaches.....didn't have Rolen and Edmonds last year.
