Quite a stretch, but that's what its all about right?

 

Signing Rafael Furcal, and Carl Crawford.

 

C- Hanigan

1B- Votto

2B- Phillips

SS- Furcal

3B- Edwin

LF- Dickerson

CF- Bruce

RF- Crawford

 

Then sign Oliver Perez

 

Rotation

Volquez

Harang

Arroyo

Cueto

Perez

 

Then sign Farnsworth, and Mota to help solidify the bullpen.

 

OH YEAH, also....Sign a new coach as well ;-)

I'll be shocked if Texiera doesn't resign with the Angels. Although neither is a free agent, I beileve WJ will try and land either Magglio Ordonez or Matt Holiday. I also read where Jocketty has said that Bako won't be back, and that he has mild interest in Josh Bard.

Well he was acquired from the Braves in July but I'm not sure if he was hurt or not. ESPN.com shows 157 games, 33 HR's and 121 RBI's for the 2008 season.

Votto as a rookie played 151 games, 24 Hr's and 84 RBI's...

I thought I was seeing his stats incorrectly. IMO I think Votto should be left at 1st and the Reds should go after a RH power hitting OF. Who that person is? I don't know. C is a ? CF is a ? SS is a ? So that gives the Reds 4 out of 8 positions that are not solid.

What will it take to land Ordonez? I'm guessing it would be a lot.

Jocketty not bringing Bako back has already made my winter.

I'd love to see Holiday, but I wonder what the Rockies would ask for? They just tanked a couple of coaches yesterday since they were 14 games under .500. Maybe they are gonna blow that thing up and start anew. Here's hoping.

I would love to see the Reds get Crawford. Furcal too, even though he is injury prone.

 

The three biggest needs: CF, SS and a right handed power hitter.

Not as much as it would to land Holliday. The Tigers need to unload some payroll, and Ordonez is expected to be traded from what I have read.
