Can anyone tell me who the catcher was during this past season who only played one or two games while Barhardt was injured,thenI never heard or seen him again. I can remember him hitting a home run.All I can remember his last name started with an (L).

Speaking of Catcher.... I’m not sure that it should be a huge focus this offseason. There aren’t a lot of better options available. The Reds tandem hit 19 HR, 72 RBI .240 AVG and a .329 OBP. They seemed to click with the starting rotation. The Reds catching situation is probably middle of the pack. They should sign the best outfield that makes sense way before overpaying for a catcher.

I can get behind that logic.

If they sign a good center fielder, they can move Senzel back to 2nd, then Galvis or Iglesias can be signed to keep shortstop. The gives us a good infield. We have Aquino, Van Meter, Winker and Ervin to battle for the final 2 outfield spots. Or you can sign two outfielders, as the only other major needs the team has is bullpen depth, which is relatively cheap.

It would be awesome to find a center fielder that is a legitimate leadoff hitter, find a shut down closer, move Senzel to second and resign Iglesias at SS. I would like to see a lefty in the rotation too. The team was 6 wins away from being .500. Making these moves should give them a shot at the wildcard.

That's him what ever happened to him, I thought he did a decent job the short time he was there.

Reds have a young catcher with impressive defensive skills currently in the minor leagues close to cracking the major league roster by the name of Tyler Stephenson. He's currently hitting .341 in the Arizona fall League. He probably won't make it to the bigs this year unless we have the same problem as last with catcher injuries.
My key to long life: Get old or die! There are no further options available at this time.
