IMO, the A's have better OF depth than we do, as evident with the DFA of Mr. Bradley.
Therefore, if Denorfia will start for the A's, a team with better OF depth than the Reds, he's not a 4th OF.
But then again, neither is Norris Hopper.
He's more like a 6th or 7th.
Um, exactly how does anything prove they have more outfield depth than we do? I think KGJ, Hamilton, and Dunn would all start over any of their guys, maybe Swisher notwithstanding. Not to mention Bruce and possibly even Votto coming out of the minor leagues, your logic does not hold up AT ALL.
To understand Highlifeman, you must also understand that he is still very upset that Ben Broussard is not the Reds' starting 1B. I think that's all that needs to be said. Chris Denorfia is a fringe major league outfielder. That's all.
I liked the trade then and I like it now.
