Looks like I accidentally left a n out in Danny. It's been a long day. I just got back from Tennessee with family and friends a little while ago...my buddies I rode with somehow managed to turn a five hour drive into an eight hour drive.

I went with Dorn again.

I like Dorn's power bat. He looks like he'll be a true major league hitter IMO, even if its in a platoon role. Being a LH Hitter, he'll still be a major contributor to some team. As a low round pick, he doesn't get as much credit as more publicized guys, but he'll help the Reds at some point in 2009. If the Reds want to go ahead and move Votto to LF in anticipation of Alonso, a Dorn/Keppinger platoon at 1B might be as productive as anything they can acquire. They just may need to muddle through until Memorial day or so while Dorn gets some AAA ABs.

Alonso and Frazier get a lot of pub, but Dorn is one reason that I think the urgency over getting another corner player is a bit overblown. The Reds need more help in run prevention (i.e. defense at SS and maybe 3B and maybe another solid inning guy for the rotation. I'm also beginning to think that the young guys for the pen like Roenicke, Fisher and even Bray aren't ready for a late inning role) and resources should be sent towards those needs. Internal options can probably fortify the corner spots and add to the offense. The lack of fanfare probably means that Dorn would need to prove himself at the major league level before the Reds could get much in trade for him. That is one reason I'd hang on to him and look to deal more noted minor leaguers as the Reds try to add the necessary pieces.

Stormn' Yorman

The distance between Stormin' Yorman and Duran Duran shouldn't be too big.

Let's hope Dany Dorn is as good as Danny Dorn. Maybe Dany can be Danny's platoon partner?

FWIW, I wasn't hating on McGavin's typo, I was playing along with his joke. I misspelled Danny in the poll, then he purposely misspelled it in his post as a joke, and I followed with a little sarcasm of my own. :)

Oh, I know. But after I re-read my post it looked like it could be taken the wrong way so I wanted to clarify that it was a joke.
