Is the Reds' future bright?
The Cincinnati Reds finished off the regular season with a five-game losing streak, a tailspin that ended with their loss to the Pirates in the NL wild-card game. It's not all bad for the Reds -- Joey Votto and Shin-Soo Choo both had excellent years, and new addition Billy Hamilton wowed fans and catchers alike with 13 steals in as many games. Still, it's beginning to seem like time is running out for the Reds' current core, although manager Dusty Baker will have at least one more year to try for a World Series win.
