Tough time to manage the reds, with the cards & pirates set for a couple year run.

Depends on how much they lose to free agency this off season.  They certainly have plenty of talent to contend as they stand now.

It's a mother f*cker of a division.

Dusty applied for the Nats job.  When I heard I had this 2 second moment of pure terror at the prospect of him getting the job.  But then I realized there's no way in hell that Nats would do that. Right? RIGHT?

As a Braves fan, I sincerely hope the Nats hire Dusty. Especially with Fredi still in Atlanta.

Firstly, who? Secondly free agency is good for temporary quick fixes, but the best way to stay competitive over the long haul is a viable farm system.

The combination of Dusty's pitcher management and Stephen Strasburg's arm health? It's a match made in heaven.

Hopefully they stop clogging up the bases. If only Neifi Perez and Corey Patterson were still playing

If you want to make the playoffs and then go not much further I'd say that's a great hire. You might even get five outs away from a WS ring.

On the Reds post-season radar:

- Fire Dusty. Check.
- Hire replacement. Check.
- Wait for Price to set his bench/coaching staff, hire fill-ins where needed. Does Brook Jacoby stay? Hope not.
- Wait for Price to come out with 'Chapman starts next year', and shop for a new closer.
- Resign Choo, or more likely, don't. Outcome TBD
- Resign Arroyo, or more likely, don't. Coming sooner rather than later
- Trade Brandon Phillips. All rumor mill so far, but not far-fetched enough to keep people from seriously considering it.
- Shop for a power hitter, preferably batting from the right side.

Did I leave anything out? Walt Jocketty had better be a busy MF this winter.

From what I'm hearing, the Braves are interested in Phillips for Uggla. Uggla would be a great fit for the Reds cause he bats right and performs well at Great American Ballpark. We need a good right handed hitter. Most of our players bat left.

At least the Brewers get to face the Cubs 15 times a year.

Billy Hamilton will probably be a good replacement for leadoff, so they got that going for them at least.

Judging by the Twitter fans for the Reds (pardon me, #Reds), Billy Hamilton is penciled in at 3 to 4 positions next year. Hopefully Bryan Price can narrow it down to one. Good thing they gave BH some major league time to show he can play, and yes, he can play at this level. And steal bases. Daaaag.

Uggla/Phillips.... what's that sound, its the sound of my teeth grinding as Uggla bats .215 again. I've beaten this topic to death on some Reds forums but a batter hitting .265 would have been 3rd in BA on the Reds this year. TWO SIXTY FIVE! Sigh, That's even counting the bench players. There's OBP (Choo's beanballs and Votto's walks) and SLG (Jay Bruce) but really just a few extra hits would have made a big difference.
