Re: Reds Sign Corey Patterson, Jerry Hairston
I'm having a hard time understanding why people say Patterson helps in the future. Dusty even said that.
Patterson is signed for 1 YEAR. His agent is Scot Boras. If he does good, that mean's he makes a lot of money and probably signs somewhere else. If he does bad, he hurts the team.
People have to realize that IF Patterson becomes some type of "steal" then he's taking time away from Bruce and will leave in 2009 since he's a FA. If he's bad, then he's hurting the team. People say he should be a replacement/bench player, but then who starts?
