Does anyone else think the Reds might be interested in him? He is struggling big-time this year and maybe the Rockies would unload him for somewhat cheap.

Where would he play? Is this going to be another send EE to LF thread?

Atkins at 3B
UZR/150
06 -2.1
07 -14.6
08 -8.6
09 -12.5


I'm not a fan in general. Bad year last year followed by a slow start in 09 does not bode well for the 30 year old Atkins...

I brought him up in the find a RH bat thread awhile back but, I still like Ben Zobrist for a cheap pick up. Switch hitter and as long as you keep him out of SS or CF, he is average to slightly above average with a glove.

Zobrist is becoming a cult here down in Tampa, I don't think there's any way we could pry him away from Tampa. Prospects won't be all that enticing to a team that is loaded with them ;)

Exactly right. I think Zobrist is a key guy on that team not an excess guy they are looking to peddle. They don't need prospects as much as they need Zobrist.
