That should be the truth - but I'm sure you've seen Baker's comments on BP, that "he should bat third someday".
You know, you don't want your #3 hitter clogging up the bases...
Unfortunately EE, although probably the best contact and power hitter not named Adam Dunn on the team, will be relegated to the 6 spot in the present and future - unless we dont' keep Dunn.
Some really crappy Left Fielder
Some really crappy Catcher
I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008
Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
