I agree with you. The idea of Patterson as a fourth outfielder is not a bad one. Id take him over Hopper in that role. The feelings of trepidation and fear that this move will surely provoke are understandable given Baker's past preferences. I would not be suprised to see Patterson in CF and be the first up against Brandon Webb a month from now. As for Hairston, he is truly a waste of space even on a minor league deal. He brings nothing to the table that any reds minor leaguer cant already provide in a superior fashion.
