Maybe but being that he is as old as he is, he is probably just another in the long line of Shearn's, Pettyjohn's, Lehr's, etc.

I think we will see Dickerson, Rosales, and Hannigan at some point down the stretch in Reds unis...I think that those 3 can help this team in some way next year, with cheap young players, making up the bench backup roles, and maybe in Dickerson's case as a starter in CF...

redhawk61
08-05-2008, 12:14 AM
If Dickerson can put just a .330-.350 OBP(he has a career .361 OBP and .383 so far this year), regardless of everything else, I wouldn't mind handing him the starting CF for next year. Gives us one less thing to worry about in the offseason, which is why he needs to be up now getting plenty of AB's to see if he can be that semi acceptable leadoff guy.

I agree, with him in between Dunn (hopefully) and Bruce...That is a pretty good defensive outfield as Bruce reads the ball well and Dickerson can cover lots of ground...

Exactly, except on Dunn, not that I don;t like him and what not, it just doesn't make much financial sense to lock him up for 4-5 at 16-18 when we have so much LF capable depth in the minors with Fraizier, Cumberland, Soto, etc. and in Votto. I've said it before, move Votto to LF in the offseason and sign a journey man type like Doug Manchiewicz (sp?) to hold down 1b till one of Frazier/Alonso(if signed of course) is ready.

So you go into '09, very young, but a completly diferent culture than just the year before:

CF Dickerson
SS Furcal-Dunn freed up money goes to a position we are weak of in the minors (maybe switch up Chris and Furcal)
RF Bruce
LF Votto
2b BP
1b Menchiewicz
3b EE
C Ross/Hannigan/maybe a trade

Hanigan is only 28. Are we sure he doesn't need a couple more years of seasoning at AAA? And so what he hits .300, the Reds never have trouble finding catchers that can hit.

That target OBP would certainly seem feasible, and especially so if he were used as a platoon player. He has a .394 against righties this year. It's hard to see why that wouldn't project to .350 in the big leagues, when (if he were a leadoff guy) he would be batting in front of better hitters. Combine that with 25 steals and excellent defense, which he is reputed to play, and you have an answer.

It certainly seems like this would be the time to find out, at any rate. The Brewers are throwing a righthander tomorrow night. Dickerson's hot. And not even Dusty is eager to start Patterson anymore.

Absolutely. I'm really loving that draft. And look at Hildenbrandt's teenage teammate, Shea Snowden, who has a 1.50 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. The Italian teens have allowed only one earned run over 14 innings or so, too.
