Today we will finish up our Minor League Ball Community discussion series You’re the GM! by rounding up the National League Central division clubs, beginning with the Cincinnati Reds.

****You woke up this morning to find yourself in charge of the Reds. You’re 65-88, last place in the NL Central. What is a realistic timetable for getting back to .500? Beyond .500?

****Should Jim Riggleman have the “interim” dropped from his job title and be brought back as the manager next year? If not, who should replace him?

****On paper it looks like you have a promising young lineup held back by an erratic pitching staff. Is that a fair assessment, and if so, how do you turn that pitching staff around?

****Would you make any major changes in draft/development philosophy, or are you already on the right track?
