With Edinson Volquez out for 12 months, do you see the Reds acquiring another proven starter before the 2010 season begins?

Brady J., Miller City, Ohio

I know this season has been injury-plagued, but with two losing seasons under his belt, is there any sense that Dusty Baker is on thin ice?
J. Ford – Jeffersonville, Indiana

With one eye now firmly focused on 2010, what are the odds of Drew Stubbs and/or Chris Heisey getting a long look this September?

Kirk P., Georgetown, Ky.

What is your stance on or view of Yonder Alonso? Is he more of a guy that will play 1B and move Votto to LF or are there other options or positions for him, or is he trade bait?

C. Woods -New Carlisle, OH

I don’t think there is much doubt that injuries have been the primary reason for the Reds poor record this year. But beside that, how much blame do you think Dusty Baker deserves for the Reds performance?

Sorry, forgot my name and location: Steve M. West Chester, OH

Will the loss of Edinson Volquez have an effect on whether or not any Reds pitchers are dealt before August 31st?
Ron T – Portland, OR
