The 2nd half is under way for the 2008 season. the Reds win a roadtrip and are 1 and 1 at home.With July upon us and the All Star game soon to be played, what changes do you think Walt Jocketty will make? How do you evaluate the the roster?
Jerry Jr - nice job, a keeper Dunn - another excellent season in the making Keppinger- the guy can hit and plays solid defense, if limited Griffey - A defensive liability and not a #3 hitter any more Brandon Phillips - SS of the future? An interesting hitter but not at cleanup Joey Votto - maturing nicley, both offensively and defensivley J.Bruce - a few bumps in the road, but a star in the making David Ross - heading back to 06 form? Bako - nice surprise and a good #2 Edwin E.- When will he emerge as a RH hitting force?
Plus - Hopper, Freel, and CoPat - who goes who stays? What about - Old man Weathers and Majewski?
I like the starting rotation if Bronson can keep his mechanics together and the bullpen has solid performers in coco, Bill Bray, Burton and Affeldt.
So if you are Walt Jocketty what do you do? Who do you move, and who do you keep?
This is Madville Harvey - good Day!
