No one needs a career .240 hitter as our everyday first baseman. Freel is an improvement over Dunn in the OF. This gets more speed in the lineup.

Why does everyone hate Womack? He's had a good spring.

It probably has something to do with last year's numbers.

And every other year other then 04

He's a bad player, teams don't get better by starting bad players over better options.

People are assuming that Dunn is still willing to play 1st. Maybe that is a big part of why Pena was sent packing, perhaps Dunn gave it a shot but didnt feel like embarassing himself for 162 games so he asked to be moved back to LF. At least he didnt go Soriano on us, and also perhaps Narron watched him for awhile much closer then us and figured he couldnt do it.

Dunns a career .248 hitter.

Also Hatteberg at the plate doesnt scare me near as much as Hatteberg in the field. If anything is hit to the right side of our infield and it is not right at someone its going to be a hit.

Dunn has 106 games played at 1st, I think he knows how to play it.

Something tells me Pena was moved to open a spot for Hatteberg more then moving Dunn back to left.

This discussion is being housed in nearly every thread over the last 24 hours.

Do we really need another one?

Yes, you caught the same thing I caught - and Hatteberg's a career .260+ batter.

Elsewhere someone commented that Pena was moved to make room for Hatteberg. On the contrary, Pena was moved to shore up our abysmal pitching rotation. We all knew when Hatteberg was signed, something was afoot. He's a stopgap player while Wayne K. clears out the system's arteries. Just think of him as Lipitor with a glove and bat. :D

If the big gorilla wants to play the outfield, let him.

He's not Alfonso Soriano. We want to keep him happy, and want him to stay here beyond his contract. He's the franchise.
