Re: Alex Gonzalez to the Reds???
An above average fielding ss that can hit .250 improves the Reds.
1. He fills the defensive void at SS.
2. He helps fill the defensive void at 2b by keeping Phillips there.
3. The improved up the middle defense helps the pitching staff--think of all those dp's that didn't happen before big things did happen last season.
And 5 milion a year isn't that much in today's dollars--heck the Reds paid an aging Barry Larking more than that to play about 120 games a year three years ago.
