No one wants to head out there with Hopper/Dickerson/Bruce. But that is absolutely no different than going out there with Taveras/Dickerson/Bruce. Yeah, we have one more player, but its not any different. The Reds need to bring in good players, not players who suck. Adding suck doesn't address any problem at all.
Again, I agree. I think they want to bring in someone for the LF vacancy. They've already got people to compete for the CF slot, but the competition won't take place unless they get someone to fill the LF slot.
I've said this numerous times and have yet to get an answer. Who, other than Taveras, could we have gotten to fill the CF void from the FA market? Who would've accepted a 2 year deal? I didn't see anybody I'd want from the CF candidates.
