I have a better feeling about this year than I have had in the past, I will say that much. We must address the closer situation, we have 2 good starters for a change, and 2 decent ones. The infield defense problem has been addressed with the addition of Alex Gonzalez, hopefully we won't see so many lineup changes this year, I really think that hurt us offensively all year.
What the Reds don't have, however, is someone who has filled the role consistently and successfully. David Weathers earned 15 saves in 2005 and another 12 last year, before and after Guardado arrived. But Weathers' niche has been that of a dependable set-up man.
