The Reds got off to a good  start in Spring Training.  There are some nagging questions, however.  Will Latos and Leake be ready for opening day?  Can Billy Hamilton hit his way on base and patrol center field like Choo did?  Have the Reds spent their way into a corner with big contracts to Votto, Phillips, and Bailey?  We hope the first two are yes and the last one is no.  So far that tendency to score runs in bunches and then get shut out is still  around.  Will they consistently hit?  Ownership says he has spent what he can afford and TV will offset the cost.  Cincinnati will never be able to spend with the Yankees, Rangers, Cubs, or Red Sox.  That is why the minor league system must remain strong.

As far as individual performances go every year is a crapshoot.  I don’t think Hamilton will every be a .300 hitter but if he can bunt, draw walks, and hit .270 he will be a winner.  A pitching staff today is a like a China doll that can break at any time.  Trainers and doctors are as important as pithing coaches.  These athletes fine tune their bodies so much they are always on the edge of breaking.

Hitting is contagious and the Reds have enough of it if Frazier, Cozart, and Ludwick get back to 2012.  We will see.
