Baker and the Kids in Cincinnati

I happened to come across this article today on Yahoo about Dusty Baker and the Cincinnati Reds.

I think it's kind of funny how some things change (Dusty from the Cubs to the Reds) and some things stay the same (Dusty preferring a known, Norris Hopper, over a rookie, Jay Bruce).  Now, someone else with more time can probably list the reasons why this is crazy.

Then we have these two gems from the article.

"Who says they need to be eased in?" Baker said. "I wasn't eased in. Junior wasn't eased in. A whole bunch of guys weren't eased in. A lot of it has to do with need." "But what if you say, `Go play, kid,' and he's not ready to play winning baseball? Is it OK to overlook that? I don't know."

So with all that what do you think the over/under is for Bruce, Votto, Cueto, and Bailey?
