He definitely wouldn't clog the bases, that's for sure.
Keppinger has an inside shot, but I don't think Dusty likes his Defense as much. Janish had some early looks/promise, but I think Dusty goes the "proven but crappy veteran" whenever in doubt...
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
