  1. I love this part of the blog. I particularly like the give and take from those of you who follow DOTF studiously. So, who is gonna play themselves into a trade of our prospects for a Top of the line outfielder? For extra credit, assuming DBaker is still the Reds manager, at the end of Spring Training will play the roles of Todd Frazier and Willie Harris. And whom do you think will be the AA manager?

  2. Please insert ‘who’ between ‘Spring Training’ and ‘will’ in previous post.

  3. @seat101: There are some factors that need to be addressed that will dictate which if any off season moves are completed. The very first issue is Luddy’s contract. I’m sure the Reds will pick up their end of the mutual option. If Luddy does come back then I don’t see any significant off season trades this year. I think Uncle Walt probably wants to let the minor league prospects mature for a year to see who steps up to be ready for 2014. There are plenty of players at every position vying for a ML roster spot in 2014. Not all of them will make it, but the future certainly looks Rosie. If Luddy doesn’t come back, then the Reds need a significant off season transaction (RA or trade) to fill a big hole in the roster. If Mr. Baker gets an extention to his contract, then I don’t think it really matters who is on the roster.

      the saddest words of tongue or pen……..

      If Jocketty extends Baker, will he manage to finally Dusty-proof the lineup by supplying a CF and SS with on base skills so we don’t have a black hole in the lineup leading up to Joey Votto? Billy Hamilton could help with that, but most likely not until 2014. He hasn’t even learned to play CF yet.

  4. Anyone know what time they’re doing the pregame stuff with Larkin? Friend of mine has tickets and wants to know how early to show up.

  5. It appears the Reds might have some good 1 and 2 hitters in the future. Between Hamilton and Theo Bowe, Votto could be raking in the RBIs.
