The Reds need to get a genuine centerfielder through free agency or else it's going to be like it always has been. Freel until he cools off, then Hairston and finally Hopper. That woud be a tragedy.
He's got a .382 OBP and 24 steals in AAA and plays Gold Glove caliber defense. He may never be more than a 4th or 5th outfielder but it wouldn't hurt to give him a try. If he proves he can OPS at .750 or so then he solves the CF problem. If he shows he can't hit then you still have a solid defensive replacement at the end of the game.
I miss Adam Dunn.
