Off-Night Premature Hot Stove SIS

We ran out of not serious questions.

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Typically, when we come up with a SIS we think about some questions that don't make a lot of sense, but generally bring the community together and get us talking.  The game threads have been doing a good job at that lately, so we can take this a bit more seriously.  Next year the Reds are going to be good again, mostly because I'm going to will it to happen, so how about we talk about how that is going to happen.  I'm also completely cool with the idea of the rest of you beautiful people coming up with some other SIS questions.  The more the merrier.  Really, I'm going to watch MNF and drink some beers.  I'll be around for some nonsense and baseball talk.  Here are the questions we came up with on the fly.

If you could release or non tender one player from the 25 man roster (not named Skip or Hannahan) who would it be?

Who would be your top priority in free agency?

You get to make one trade for 2015.  What is your trade?

Who is the one prospect (rookie status still intact) that you think will have the greatest impact in 2015?

It seems like a forgone conclusion that either Cueto, Latos, or Leake will be gone next year.  Who do you think will be traded?  Who do you think should be traded?

Is a season like Mesoraco's or Cueto's this year "wasted" by being in such a bad year? Or are their great performances -- to say nothing of Frazier's -- the high notes in an otherwise glum season?
