Reds Sign Taveras

Well, the Reds finally inked Willy Taveras today to a two year deal. This now still only gives the Reds four outfielders. Taveras gives the Reds a legit leadoff hitter as well as an eraser in CF. Taveras had a down year at the plate last season only hitting .251 but did steal a league leading 68 stolen bases.

It'll be interesting what the Reds lineup will look like now. The Reds insist that they're still looking for a big bat in the middle and are also trying to re-sign Jerry Hairston Jr.

My projected lineup:
Taveras CF
Bruce RF
Phillips 2B
Votto 1B
Ramon Hernandez C
Chris Dickerson LF
Edwin Encarnarcion 3B
Gonzalez/Keppinger SS
