On another note, I'm super excited to see Peraza play a whole year, he's had a great year to this point. If Billy Hamilton can improve his BA, having those two at the top of the lineup would be terrifying for other teams.

I'm still not sure that they will be much improved next year, but I certainly think that they will be much more fun to watch! Hamilton, Peraza, and Votto at the top of the order will give Duvall and Phillips a ton of RBI chances next year. Even Peraza or Hamilton lower in the order would be dynamite, pending if they hold on to Cozart in the offseason. The pitching still has a ways to go, Bailey can't stay healthy and I'm not convinced by Straily's year. DeScalfani looks like he'll be a solid 2-3 man and if you have 5 solid 2-3's, you're going to have a great year. The bullpen still needs a ton of help, but some minor moves could improve it in a hurry.

The only team that I see not improving next year is the Pirates, but they could make a couple of shrewd moves like they normally do and that could even help. Possibly trading Cutch to open an OF spot for Austin Meadows could be something to look for. I'd understand not trading a cornerstone of the franchise though. The Brewers offense will be much improved and even if they pull the Braun for Puig trade, I think they will be a more complete team. The Cardinals will get better years out of Pham, Grichik, and Wong, but I'm not sure if their staff will figure things out. The Cubs will be unreal for at least next season (and likely after, but pitching?) as they still have Arrieta and Lackey for one more year and could bring back Hammel if they pick up his option. Chapman is likely gone, but it's not like Rondon is a pushover as a closer.

Cincy brass is committed only to cash flow (MLB TV contract minus low salary), not winning. Get used to a .500 season being a banner year. Cincy has assumed the mantle of Cleveland: First in war, first in peace, and last in the NL Central.

The team salary isn't even that low (3rd in division) lol, it's just called rebuilding and it doesn't happen in 1-2 years for a small market team.

Like bighead said, the right group will come. They aren't that far off from being a competitive team, it just doesn't help that they are in a loaded division right now and imagine if the Astros were still in it?!

Long list of issues....
1)What to do with Phillips and Cozart...As long as they play and block Jose and DHerrara the rebuild is just half-a##ed..Phillips has 1 more yr
2)Billy was a very valuable player last year...But he hasnt and wont stay healthy..Shebler can play CF if they keep Winker in left and move AD to RF
3)What to do with the Suarez/Senzel situation will be coming up soon.I look for Senzel to bust the door down this yr. This kid can rake.
4)Last go-around to try and stay healthy for hard-luck Devin Mesorocco...Man I am pulling for him....Him and Tuck would make a great tandem
5)Joey keeps healthy and keeps being one of the most productive Offensive players in baseball
6)Starting pitching...Can Homer make it back?Great stuff when he is right..Disco has been solid...I really like BFinnegan..Not overwhelming size or velocity but has good secondary stuff and he can get it up there with his 4-seamer at 93-94..And he competes...Strailey was just fine last year pitching with smarts...Heres the key..At least 2 of the young guys need to become Big-League..Cody(Back issues)RStephenson(Command issues) or Amir Garrett,who I really like. 2nd tier of Rookie Davis,Big Sal,Mahle,Travieso may come into the picture too
7)The Pen...I would like to see Iggy and Lorenzen in the rotation but they became valuable pieces down there the 2nd half. Iggy has tremendous stuff. Wood did ok at times too along with Jumbo. They need a reliable loogy. A lot to sort out there.

We may not agree on college football, but I'm a die hard Reds fan and agree with everything you just said.

I love Phillips, but I think it's time for him. He needs to move aside and we need to see more of Peraza. When he was in the lineup, it was dynamite with him and Billy going back-to-back when they were both getting on. I'm 50/50 on Cozart, one of the best defensive shortstops in the game and really starting to come through with the bat, but, he's not young.

Like you said, Billy needs to stay healthy, if he can do that (he hasn't showed he can), he's a no-brainer in CF.

I like Suarez, I really like his power, but his BA and defense are just plain bad. If Senzel can bust out this year, I think the job is his.

Devin Mesoraco, I love him. I have his jersey, and I'm a big fan of his (I rarely buy jerseys). Him and Tucker would be one of the best catcher duos in baseball. Mesoraco straight up rakes when he's healthy, and Barnhart knows how to call a game and showed some promise at the plate this year.

Joey Votto is just that, he's Joey Votto and there's nobody else like him.

Starting pitching, I don't think they have that "ace" right now, but hopefully one can be developed. If they get one of those they have a really solid rotation. As long as Bailey can stay healthy.

Iglesias and Lorenzen I think, showed they belong in the bullpen, they're very good down there. Wood and Diaz have good days and they have bad days. They need a veteran down there to help our some of those young guys.

Chief...Gino's OPS got in or around 750 last yr. BA is very overrated. He also greatly improved down at the corner with the glove and his throwing as the year went on. His footwork got SO much better which helped his accuracy and he quit booting the routine ground balls as much and made a lot of really outstanding plays. i like him a lot. The one thing that hinders him is a swing that is WAYYY too long thru the hitting area. If he could get shorter to the ball his production is going to go up. Just a matter of where he plays in the next year or 2

I agree, he did get a ton better at defense throughout the year, and I give him some credit for playing third because that isn't his natural position. The main problem I see (as long as he continues getting better at fielding) is that he tries to hit every ball he sees into the river. Don't get me wrong, when he gets ahold of one it's fun to watch, but I'd really like to see him get on base more. But, I'm the same as you, I really do like him. When they brought him up the year before for the first time when Cozart got injured, he was genius at the plate that year.
