Baldelli would probably hit 2nd or 6th in the order with Phillips manning the other spot... I guess that leaves Edwin for the 4 hole...
Better yet, what if the Reds sign both Baldelli and traded for Jermaine Dye. Baldelli would be the fourth outfielder with Dickerson as the fifth outfielder. And suddenly what was a weakness on the roster becomes a strength. Baldelli could back up Taveras in center and still get plenty ABs while slowly increase his playing time as the season goes on.
You see......not everything is raining and gloomy.
