I really like K. Matsui at a weak SS position. I also like the young arms of Harden, Webb and E. Jackon. I really think you fate depends on how well Oswalt can pitch. I haven't heard but I'd say he'll be 3 or 4 in that rotation. If you're drawing names out of a hat of National leaguer 3 or 4's, you only have maybe 3 or 4 teams that can run a pitcher of that quality out there to match him. I think if the Reds in general can stay healthy, they may struggle as a team but they should pad the stats of Kearns and he can put up 2nd tier outfielder numbers from what was probably a late pick. I'd see if I could trade up for another solid pitcher or look along the waivers for a guy like Jerome Williams, SF, Redman as a 4 or 5 in Oakland or a young guy like Claussen in Cinci if he can catch a slot in the rotation. Also, Jason Phillips is a good hitting catcher who should get more at=bats this year. Overall I'm a big fan of the low WHIP pitchers and you've got a good stash of them. If you're not pitching yourself into trouble, you don't need nasty stuff to get by. Good luck
