Re: Looking to see who can be centerfield
As far as pitchers go, how does Livan Hernandez sound to anyone. Of course we'd have to over pay him(but do you think the Cubs are upset about overpaying Jason Marquis)
Here's what he gives you. 1. Innings 2. Innings 3. Innings.
That article in BP convinced me that signing him would be beneficial if they threw him out there for 7 innings a game come hell or high water. Assuming Arroyo and Harang keep up to their regular workloads of 200+ innings adding Hernandez reduces the number of innings the bullpen has to work.
In a given year there are roughly 1500 innings, if you can get 600 to 700 of those taken by three guys, the remaining 8 or 9 can be counted on to be fresh.
Fill in the other two spots with whoever wins the competition between Belisle, Bailey, Maloney, Cueto and anyone else the Reds can sign cheap.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
