I would disagree. I think if you get rid of Hatteberg and add Shelton you have just made the Reds weaker as a team.
Why can't Votto play everyday? Also, I would favor Hatteberg coming off the bench late vs a righty as opposed to Shelton coming into face a lefty. I know thats hard to compare but still...Shelton is K prone.
Dollar figures aside...am I in the minority who would rather have Hatte than Shelton???
