After falling to the San Francisco Giants 3-2 in last seasons NLDS, the Reds are the favorites to come out of the NL Central. With the return of 2010 MVP 1B Joey Votto and the addition of Shin-Soo Choo to the top of the lineup should help their offense.
Manager Dusty Baker has no shortage of talented young players to choose from but ultimately the decision on who goes and who stays lays with upper management.
“I want the best players,” Baker recently said, “but upstairs has to decide who you take off and do you lose somebody if you take them off the roster.”
“Upstairs” is the front office.
The Reds take on the Chicago White Sox tonight so be sure to get out and support your Reds!
