Very wise words.
I'd like you or anyone else to answer this,

And also answer this,
"Here's the point. If he's a replacement, who starts in CF? Will Dusty give Hopper/Freel At bats against RHP when Patterson could play?" Why would Baker carry both Patterson and Bruce?
For those who say it's a minor league deal and it doesn't mean he's on the roster. Why add him when the only way for it to be a "good move" would result in Bruce playing in AAA?
