I don't think they need to be filled top to bottom with top talent. Maybe subtract a couple pieces and add solid veteran bats that can give good consistent at bats and create a threat behind votto so Phillips can go back to the two spot to fill that void. If somehow these players could improve the D at third or get choo out of center and to a corner than even better. Maybe I sounded too gloom an doom. The reds aren't too far off. I think though to improve the offense the reds may have to part ways with a player or two that we as fans may not want to see go.
