He's essientially a Jeff Conine. Not sure we can use two of them. Wilson has more pop, Conine will probably hit for a higher average.

Krivsky was blasted by a handful of Redszone experts for obtaining Conine and not Wilson. SOme should show their heads and state if there decisions as arm chair GM would have occured, things would be no better off.

I dont get to watch many games but I saw Conine strike out to end it twice in a week.Thats not saying I wanted Wilson but I sure didnt like the Conine signing.
Votto could do that.

I've also seen Conine come in twice in a sacrifice situation with a runner on 3B and he delivered with a fly ball both times. He may not be flashy, but he serves the purpose as a good part-time defensive first baseman, he's capable of doing the little things when asked, and he gives the team good at-bats.

He wouldn't be a bad right handed bat off the bench. It would definitely beat carrying three catchers.

I don't see where he helps. It looks like the team could use a 3rd baseman or a catcher, but another 1bman/corner of doesn't help.

I sign him now while Harang is out and let him DH all week-end. Send down a catcher when Harang comes back. At least its a RH power threat on the bench.

I think the question mark behind his name in the thread title is pretty apt...

Conine is a professional hitter. He's just on the wrong side of his career for what the Reds need from a righty this season....

He's performing though.

If he can catch then sure, we could use a 4th catcher.

The Reds need more than .265/.333/.441 from their big bopping righty...

Sending down Javy?


I don't like Javy behind the plate.. period.. not a single oz.

Moller is up here to stay....

Alot of posters need to get Javy as a catcher out of their minds.... He is now the 3rd/Holy Crap we need a catcher, catcher.

Your comment in the Hamilton thread about it being a moot point probably applies to Conine as well. Just ride him until July, then flip him for whatever you can get.

Or sign Wilson and flip him now.
