Re: So how long will Castellini stick with Dusty Baker?
Until he stops batting CF's and SS's 1st and 2nd, regardless of that player's abilities - this lineup will continue to cause great pains to the Offensive Production.
That being said, it appears our biggest issues remain with Pitching and Defense, and nothing DUHsty is doing in that regards is hurting us. However, his insistence on prioritizing Defense over Offense - in Corey Patterson, Paul Janish, etc.. - has a DIRECT correlation to the point above, since those positions are CF and SS. SO, we can't win for losing, literally...
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
