The last thread with RedsFest etc was getting pretty long, so time for a new thread just as the Reds' brass flies south for the Winter Meetings (and gets out before it ices up)

Do you keep Billy Hamilton in the big leagues or sending him back to AAA for more "seasoning"? Lots of questions this off-season, what would you do if you were the GM?
Here is a quick run-down of what I would do right now. Of course this will likely change 4-5 times this off-season because well just because.

Word is that we shall have no new manager before the World Series is completed. I wonder if the decision has already been made and the team is just waiting now so as to keep MLB happy?
