Re: If Corey Patterson is the OD starting centerfielder-It will be a crying shame!
I don't know why everyone has so much hate for corey patterson. He's a proven major leaguer . I'll agree with most of you he's not that great with the stick at times. He has some pop and can steal a few bases when he gets on. I think the reds are playing him in center more for his defense than his offense. They need a speedy guy who can cover the gaps with the two defensive liabilties in left and right. We've got enough offense from guys like jr., dunn, phillips, edwin and the combo of votto and hatte. it's not like were asking him to hit 30 hrs and drive in 100. He'll do fine until Bruce is ready to come back up and take over the spot.I am not one bit worried about him starting in CF
